Can you drive without car insurance in Louisiana?

My sister said her insurance policy has lapsed. Does this mean she's driving illegally now?

“Yes, it’s illegal to drive without car insurance in Louisiana. Drivers must maintain an insurance policy and carry proof of insurance with them at all times.
If caught without car insurance, drivers must pay $100 for a first offense, $250 for a second offense, up to $700 for further offenses. They must also purchase additional SR-22 car insurance, which could increase the cost of future car insurance premiums.
If price is an obstacle for obtaining car insurance, Jerry can help. Jerry pulls quotes from the top 50 companies and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes.”
