Can I drive without car insurance?

I don't think I need car insurance since I'm a good driver. Am I able to drive without it?

“Having insurance is extremely important, even if you are a good driver. Without insurance, you are liable for any damage or injuries you cause in an accident. You also could face license suspensions and fines.
While you can drive without car insurance, it is against the law in almost every state.
Apart from Virginia and New Hampshire, every state requires you to carry at least the state minimum car insurance to legally get behind the wheel.
