Can you drive with no car insurance in North Dakota?

I only own one vehicle (Toyota Tundra), and I don't want to continue paying for the insurance. I only drive on back roads. What are the penalties if I let my policy lapse?

“In North Dakota, basic liability insurance is legally mandatory, and going without it can constitute a misdemeanor.
Those who are convicted of driving without car insurance may have to:
  • pay fines up to $5,000
  • serve jail time
  • surrender their driver’s licenses
While you must purchase car insurance to avoid these costs, you don’t have to break the bank to ensure you’re covered. Jerry compares rates from the top providers and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes.”
