I got pulled over yesterday and didnt have my insurance card with me, it was with my husband 70 miles away. He also changed our insurance that day to a different company but our payment didnt go through until after I got pulled over.He works 4 hours away and parks our car at his bosses shop. He is also gone 3 weeks out of the month. I went to the different city and got our other insurance card and realized it has lapsed. I dont deal with the insurance or car issues he does because I deal with everything else. So today I took in the proof of our new insurance and took it to the officer he told me I had to prove what time I got the insurance and I called and the insurance company said that the only time they can put down is the time the payment went through. I just need to know if I should pay the ticket or if they should honor it because on our policy it stated that we were covered as of 12am that day? So should I just pay the fine and if I do and pay it beore the court date do I still have to appear before the judge? Also he did not issue me the ticket until the next day. I got pulled over for not having plates on my new vehicle yet and it has been 2 months since I had it. I know I am wrong but we just moved here a year ago from another state and I didnt know the law and cant get to the dmv due to my work hours. I will pay that fine but jeez he told me I was a criminal and that he should have arrested me in front of my children. Ya you can say I went into a panic attack.
