On April 4, as I was looking for a parking place in a shopping center, a car backed out of a space and hit my car. The person said he had insurance. I called his agent Monday, and yes, he had insurance.
His company called back Tuesday morning. He hadn’t paid for the insurance. I am stuck with a $1,000 deductible. I called the Department of Motor Vehicles. Surely he could be charged for driving without insurance.
I was told no punishment, no law against it. You only have to have insurance to register vehicle. You can then cancel and go without insurance for another year. I could take them to civil court, but you can’t get blood out of a turnip.
His car should be impounded, and his driver’s license suspended until he obtains insurance. Is there no justice?
Never miss a local story.
