Can you drive without car insurance in Montana?

I use my vehicle very irregularly and only in my rural residential area. I don't think I need to purchase insurance for accidents, but am I legally liable if I don't?

“No matter your driving habits, you’re legally required to purchase auto insurance for a vehicle you own and operate in Montana.
Driving without car insurance in Montana is a misdemeanor offense, and the penalty for a no-insurance citation is between $250 and $500 or up to ten days in jail for a first offense. Subsequent offenses will carry additional costs.
