6 months ago I bought a truck that is in great shape but needed some transmission work. I didn't bother getting insurance because it wasn't going to be driven for a few more months yet. Now the town I live in, in cabell co. Has given me several warnings that I must get a good inspection sticker or I will be fined and they could tow the vehicle off my property. It is drivable now but can't afford insurance before they're deadline. Does anyone know where I can get a sticker without insurance. Everything else will pass easily.
As long as you are not driving it, then all you are required to do is pay the yearly luxury taxes.
Of course if it is still registered in the other persons name and has a plate assigned to it, you can turn the plate in and again are not required to have insurance.
Lastly, you can place no trespassing signs and then cover the vehicle, or move the vehicle out of sight from the road. This would require a warrant to be served in order for anyone to run a VIN to issue a citation. You just have to remind law enforcement that you are not giving permission to enter your property. Don't disobey them, follow their orders, but do so under duress.
http://www.legis.state.wv.us/WVCODE/Code.cfm... Chapter 17-a-b-c-d-e outlines what rules and regulations are for vehicles, and nowhere does it state a valid inspection sticker is due for a parked vehicle. It also nowhere states that you must have insurance on a parked vehicle on private property.
The difference may be IF you are in the City Limits. It may be a city of Huntington Ordinance.
They are picking on You. There is a ton of violations around town.
