What are the penalties for driving without car insurance in New Mexico?

I want to purchase a new Honda Civic, but I think insurance prices will be pricier. What happens if I don't get insurance?

“Driving without car insurance in New Mexico is a misdemeanor offense and can result in:
  • the suspension of your vehicle registration
  • a $300 fine
  • up to 90 days of jail time
Also, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to purchase a new vehicle without also purchasing car insurance, so be sure to factor that into the price.
