What is the penalty for driving without car insurance in Maine?

I'm moving to Maine, but it looks like as soon as I establish residency there my premiums will go up. Can I forego insurance instead? What will happen if I do?

“In Maine, it’s not legal to drive without car insurance, and if caught, the consequences could far outweigh the costs of your monthly premiums.
For instance, penalties for driving without insurance include:
  • jail time of up to six months
  • a fine of between $100 and $500
  • your driver’s license and vehicle registration can also be suspended
