My question involves insurance law for the state of: california
I got pulled over today for no seat belt, and since i had recently bought the car(10 days ago) i had not had a chance to insure it. But i do have insurance on my two other vehicles, just not this one.
I got cited for both no proof of insurance and seat belt.
The seat belt fine i will pay no hassles, but im curious as to whether what will happen about the no proof of insurance.
I have been told that if i purchase a car that my insurance will cover it for some 15 days until i get the paperwork all straightend out.
Another thing is that i havent registered the car under my name yet. Is my proof of insurance for my other vehicles enough or should i get it insured completly and take that proof to the judge?
Im very confused here as to what i should do, any help or advice is appreciated. thanks.
