It's all about the money. It creates as many problems as it solves. My daughter got a speeding ticket, 11:00 p.m. on a Sunday night, no other traffic anywhere in sight. The insurance company cancelled my insurance.

I will also say the cop clocked her in a 45 mph zone and charged her as if she was in the 35 mph zone. So instead of being 11 mph over the speed limit, she was now 21 mph over the speed limit.

I had to seek out new insurance for my wife and myself. I then had to title my daughter's car in her name so she could pay DMV the uninured motorist fee. She simply could not afford the quotes insurance companies were giving her while in college with a part time job.

Bottom line.... Albemarle County placed yet another uninsured motorist on your highways. Do you feel safer now?

Not complaining, just a fact of life as they milk the public for every penny they can take in durting these so called safety campaigns.

I need spell check.

Above should read "uninsured motorist fee", and "during these so called safety campaigns".

That's why I now refer to them as "revenue wh*res" (or, by us -- Ann Mallack's flying monkeys). And, yes, Albemarle is now as bad, if not worse, than Greene Co. Although I haven't noticed that Albemarle HIDES their speed limit signs behind over-growth like Greene.

Give me a BREAK!!! Try that again -- "Ann Mallack's flying M O N K E Y S" is what I said before Big Brother intervened ...

Your insurance was cancelled after only one ticket with 3 drivers on the policy? Not sure what's going on there.

Even if the officer correctly charged her, she was still going 11mph over the speed limit.
6 over the presumed 5 over grace zone.
Did she get reckless?

Also, why don't you man up and pay for your daughter insurance instead of putting her on the road with no insurance? Unless her car is a piece of junk in which case I guess it makes sense.

Company automatically cancels for DUI or 20+ over speed limit.

Doesn't matter though. My new policy and the uninsured motorist fee on my daughter is now less than what I was paying.

If your insurance company cancelled your insurance after "1" speeding ticket, there must have been prior issues. Most good companies do not cancel after only one event, and a speeding ticket at that. And yeah, if your daughter was speeding, I DO feel safer. If she is uninsured, you should not be letting her drive anyway.

Collision is only one part of the policy. I have several cars and do not insure one of them for collision, because it is a 'piece of junk' and not worth insuring for replacement value. However, I still need liability insurance to drive it legally.

What does 'man up' have to do with anything.... Amy.

We don't drive junk. Her vehicle is worth $30,000+ right now.

We'll just have to take our chances. I am not paying $400 a month to insure this vehicle for her or add her to my new policy.

She is an adult. She has met the insurance requirements with DMV. You won't get one red penny out of me.

Or you can pay the uninsured motorist fee on the "piece of junk", as somebody suggested earlier in this discussion. It might be cheaper than the liability insurance you pay. But you would be taking a big chance if you own anything.

Whoa -- how old is your daughter?! Either way -- if she can afford a $30,000 + vehicle (or YOU can afford to buy her one!), ONE OF YOU should be able to afford insurance!

Yeah, 1+1 doesn't seem to equal 2; I think we're missing part of the story.

I use FF at home and on my laptops, without getting into too much detail... I'm lucky I can get here, when I'm here.
