My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
I received a correctable citation regarding my registration sticker and proof of insurance. I did not have my current sticker on because I did not have a smog check yet but had paid for my registration first. I had a temporary proof of insurance form in my car that did not state the expiration date. Eventually, I did my smog and received my current sticker. My brother in-law and my sister borrowed my car and unfortunately got hit by another vehicle. When I went to pick them up, I had found the proper proof of insurance and it stated that my insurance expired a month prior. When filing a claim, it turns out that my policy was cancelled and I was not aware of it. I had sent a payment in advance to cover the full six months and my insurance informed me that they did not receive it. I'm upset because I did not receive anything form of notice! On top of that, the car is a total loss. Damages are worth more than the vehicle. I do not know what to do from here!
