Although it may read like some Google search query, anyone who owns or operates a vehicle in Pennsylvania should understand the laws surrounding it. At Freedom Insurance Group, Inc., we work with over 15 partners to bring the lowest costing car insurance to Northeast, Philadelphia as well as a bulk of the state.
As inexpensive as not owning your own car insurance may be, it’s simply not a possibility if you hope to be driving on the roads of Pennsylvania legally. Today, to educate our customers and all drivers in Pennsylvania, we’re going to explore the penalties and ramifications of disobeying this motor vehicle law:
You May Lose Your Driver’s License
Understandably inconvenient, the loss of your driver’s license affects you financially, and even a tad psychologically, as you’re stripped of your autonomy. Legally barred from driving until you’ve restored your standing with the Pennsylvanian DMV, you’ll be forced to take Uber or a form of a public transportation to and from your workplace, the supermarket, and any gym you frequent.
You’ll Be Barraged with Penalties
One broken headlight; one delayed turn, and you can easily be pulled over by the police. Simply by being stopped during traffic, and failing to prove that you’re covered with auto insurance, you can face $476 in penalties, and the aforementioned loss of your driver’s license. To prevent you from trying to drive without either your insurance or license, your registration plate, sticker, cards, and license will be surrendered to the authorities.
Your Only Exemption, Lacking an Auto Policy
After you lose your auto insurance policy, you have exactly 30 days to obtain a new policy, and prove that you did not operate a vehicle during this interim. Because so many uninsured drivers are caught behind the wheel, this exemption is rarely applied, though still legally binding.
