California Strict About Auto Insurance

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

Every driver in California is required to have auto insurance by law. Statistics show that 1 in 5 people in California do not have auto insurance. Auto Insurance can be expensive and nuisannce especially during this tough economy. People are willing to take the risk to drive on the open road without having car insurance. Auto insurance is absoultely necessary because it protects you.

If you are caught in driving in California without having proper proof for auto insurance, the officer will issue you a fix it ticket. If you have insurance prior to the date of getting the ticket, you can bring your auto insurance slip or policy papers to the court and pay a fix it ticket fine (probably under $35) If you don’t have auto insurance, your ticket is $500+!! After you pay the $500+ ticket, you will then be forced to get auto insurance before you can get back on the road! Now think of it this way, $500 can pay for a full year or half a year of auto insurance depending on your policy! Why waste $500 for nothing? So the lesson here is, remember to have auto insurance or you’ll be wasting a lot of money in court fees and most importantly risking yourself in the event of an accident.

Finding cheap auto insurance is not hard. There is a lot of useful information on this site and I encourage everyone who is shopping for  auto or motorcycle insurance policy to look around. Do your research and most importantly shop around before you buy!
