My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: Texas.
Today I was pulled over for going 50 in a 40 zone. First I wasn't going 50 but I will leave that for a different day. My actual question is why did the officer give me a ticket for failing to show financial liability?
On December 6th, someone t-boned my car. I was finally able to get a rental today. After picking up my rental, I was on my way home when the officer pulled me over. After checking all paperwork, he said that I will have to write you up for not having insurance because the insurance you showed me is for Lexus ES 330 whereas you are driving a Chevy Malibu. WHAT? I told him that my Lexus was totaled and showed him the rental agreement but he was adamant about handing me a ticket for showing no proof of insurance. He told me to contact my insurance company and get a proof that the car I was driving was covered. WTF? Is there such a law? I thought the insurance follows the driver and since I had an authorized rental agreement, I should be good to go. Any ideas?
