Maggie_Luna: serial_crusher: Maybe it's because I live in Texas, but people riding horses for transportation doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me.

Where in the name of Satan do you live? The boondocks? I live in Texas and horses are not at all common a sight where I live, them mechanized wagons yes, but not horses.


heh, I'm just doing my part to further stereotypes.  There is a guy who rides his horse down the bike lane on South Congress pretty regularly though.

/ I was serious about the not being that big of a deal part though, even if that many people don't do it.  Not that much different than riding a bike.

Tarkus: In California they have these things called computers that automatically send insurance info to DMV.


Which still doesn't prevent all fark-ups.  When I was living there years ago I got rear-ended.  A few months later I got a notice from the DMV that my license was to be immediately suspended for lack of insurance when the accident happened (California requires you to provide proof of auto insurance even when not at fault in an accident).  I've always had insurance, so this was sort of a shock to me.  I get out my copy of the police report, and lo and behold, right there is all my insurance information filled in exactly as it should have been.  It took a bit to get through the phone system, but thankfully I was able to get it all taken care of over the phone in one call.

In other news it only took me 20 mins to get a replacement driver's license at the Delaware DMV last week...

People who try to make Maryville always have their detractors.

As someone residing in Virginia, I just want to point out that you don't need insurance to register a vehicle in this state.  Therefore you don't have to provide proof of insurance to the DMV.  You either sign the section swearing you have insurance, or you sign the section swearing you don't have insurance and agree to the $500 penalty for not being insured.

This brings about the momentous question:  Did this woman just ride her horse to the DMV to deliver proof of insurance that the DMV never needed in the first place?

It looks to me that her license was suspended because she didn't pay that 500.00 you mentioned, and to get it reinstated they were going to charge her that plus 125 in extra penalties...If I could avoid 625.00 in fees by just proving I had insurance, I would.

No.  Most insurance companies send the DMV info electronically.  If yours doesn't, you have to bring in proof.  If you're before the deadline, you are supposed to submit proof online, but it sounds like the girl in the article tried that and the DMV did not process it.  If you miss the deadline, you have to bring it in or mail it.
