Driving Without Insurance is a Bigger Risk Than You Think

Say you’ve been caught driving without auto insurance. You know you’ll probably get a fine, but do you know how much it will be?

Say you’ve been driving without auto insurance.  You know you’ll probably get a fine if you’re caught, but do you know how much it will be?

The minimum fine for driving without insurance is $175.  That’s assessed by the State of Texas, and your city or county can charge an additional penalty.

You’ll then be charged $250 a year for the next three years.  That’s another $750.

If you don’t pay these fines, your drivers license can be suspended.

After paying at least $925 in fines, you still have to purchase auto insurance.  And that premium will now be 30% higher (or more!) because driving without insurance counts as a violation.

Obviously, the simplest solution is to just carry auto liability insurance in the first place.  But let’s be honest: most uninsured drivers simply don’t think they can afford coverage.  But it doesn’t have to be as expensive as you think.  Contact us today for an auto liability quote.
