Why should any of us carry insurance if the ones that break the law and drive without it aren't held accountable??

agree, if something is illegal and someone is guilty then they should have to suffer the punishment, if there were less lawyers and judges to rule in the meaning of the words of a law , we wouldn't need court appointed attorneys for the public to pay for,if you can't get drug dealers and rogues held accountable then how can they hold a lawbreaker of this sort accountable

If I couldn't afford insurance, then I wouldn't drive until I could but thats just me.

You can look at the court docket in the paper every week and it is filled with people charged with having no insurance. Most all are dismissed or at most are fined $50 and court costs so its cheaper to pay the fine than to buy insurance.

Driving without insurance is a complete and total disregard of other people's rights. If you cause damage or injury to another person, you should be prepared to pay for that mistake, that is what insurances is for but I see what you are talking about. If you have nothing, then why worry about it? Like the old addage goes, "you can't get blood from a turnip".

if you cannot drive legally then stay home and it will please me , if you are not willing to work for and be part of any solution then you absolutely are part of the problem.

They're not many jobs in this county, so most people can't afford insurance.

it should be the law to have insurance too, or money saved to pay for your own funeral so the rest of the family or community doesn't have to pay it for you. everybody already has their own bills they struggle with. the last thing they need is $8000-$10000 more out of pocket to bury an inconsiderate family member or friend who apparently didn't care what situation the family is left in. the loss is bad enough without financial strain to go with it. i've had that burden more than once. makes a worse struggle while trying to raise kids, but what do you do?

They encourage motorists to carry 'uninsured motorist' insurance in case someone hits you that has none. Maybe we should do the same for inconsiderate family members who die.

People that can't afford insurance can always have their internet disconnected and that would be a good start on auto insurance.
