Sometimes that works but in my case, no. I was cited for no insurance, no tags. This was about 10 years ago. I got insurance and my tags and took proof in on my court date but...they decided that they were going to set me up on some type of program where they were going to monitor me for a year to make sure that I kept auto insurance and it was going to be funded by me, like $400-500.
About 2 weeks later, I received a letter in the mail telling me that my license had been suspended for A YEAR (they never told me at court that this was going to happen) so I went back to the office and told them that since I had no license, I would not be driving and therefore would not need any auto insurance and didn't need to be monitored. Luckily, they gave me a refund.
Tried to get a hardship license so I could drive to work but they said that was only for people who had lost their license due to DUI convictions. OMG!
I think that this would probably only happen to me. Yours will probably not be such a serious thing but be prepared.:)

Wow thats pretty crazy! A family friend of mine got caught without insurance a few years ago, and all they gave her was a ticket. She went to the court house the next day and got it taken care of.

if you get in a wreck and get someone hurt you will have to pay for there vehicle and if they are injured you will pay for that to. they will garnish your check if you work if you don't work they will put you in jail and throw away the key to make sure you don;t get out.SO GET SOME INSURANCE. also you can't get your car license tags without insurance.

They will usually have your vehicle towed.
If you get a really nice cop, if he's in a good mood, he may let you drive it on home. But doubtful.

This woman is arrested, for driving under under the influence of drugs and she walks out of court room time and time again for the same offense. Now she hit a vehicle in the rear and had no insurance. Now she is in circuit court.by the other vehicles insurance company. She has nothing. All she does is draw a ssi check and do drugs. Now these people have a vehicle that is damaged.,but they have insurance with state farm. Insurance is required by law. This woman needs jail time to set example for all the other people. they can get out and drive without insurance because they are drug addicts that don't give a dam about human life.

You will get a letter that says you have to get insurance with in 30 days or they pull you tags. It's the new law. Car insurance that is. Obama care junk you get fined and then jail time. No longer in America!

Thatís what we get for voting people with your mindset into positions of power. I mean, look what a mess we would have been in if Sara Palin would have gotten voted in, right?
