One of the most common traffic tickets issued in the State of Virginia is driving without insurance. It is illegal to operate or drive any motor vehicle without at least the minimum amount of automobile insurance and if you are pulled over by a law enforcement officer and cannot produce a valid insurance card, you could face significant penalties.
While some people neglect to purchase insurance for their vehicle(s) or simply can’t afford it, others do have motor vehicle insurance and have just forgotten to update their insurance cards. This often happens when a driver is signed up for automatic withdrawals for insurance premiums and their policy renews automatically. It’s easy to forget that you need to get new insurance cards every so often, and many people don’t realize that their cards are outdated until they are stopped by the police for another violation.
More often than not, a ticket for driving without insurance can be resolved easily, especially if you already had insurance and just did not have the proper identification. However, it’s certainly in your best interest to discuss your ticket with a qualified Virginia traffic attorney, especially if you already have a number of tickets on your driving record. You need to avoid having points added to your driving record, because after so many points, you will have your license suspended and lose your driving privileges for a period of time.
