What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
Hi, I was pulled over for a defective brake light. I also do not possess a D.L because of a surcharge I owe to the DPS, but my vehicle is titled to both my spouse & I and I have been paying insurance.
I was given a ticket for the defective brake light, no D.L and no insurance. I promptly took care of the brake light, but went to court on the other 2 tickets.
My court date was reset because I've been trying to negotiate with the DPS on the surcharges I owe them.
However, I'm a little confused as to the 'No Insurance' ticket, because my vehicle is insured and has been insured for the past 3 yrs. without lapse.
The explanation the police ofcr. gave me; was because I have no DL I cant have insurance, but when I went to court and explained to the judge that the car is titled to me and does in fact have an effective insurance policy, how can I be cited for having no insurance? Even the city attorney presiding with that judge couldn't come up with an effective answer, his response was directed to the judge asking for his opinion.
They just reset my court date for 11/13/08...
I also spoke with a insurance agent and was told that the law does not state that you have to have a DL to purchase insurance for a vehicle... so what gives??
Is there anyone that has run across something like this, if so, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance...
