“Driving without car insurance in Los Angeles and the rest of California is illegal.
The fine for first time offenders ranges from $100 to $20 and $200 to $500 for prolific offenders. If you’re caught numerous times, you may have your car impounded.
If you get in an accident and don’t have proof of insurance, the consequences are much more severe.
You could have your license suspended for up to four years, regardless of fault. You may also have to get an SR22 following the reinstatement of your license.”
