Under Massachusetts Law, it is a crime to operate a motor vehicle without being properly insured. If the police stop a vehicle in Massachusetts and it does not have insurance, the officer will give the driver a traffic ticket for operating an uninsured motor vehicle. The uninsured car will also likely be towed.
Often times, a lapse of car insurance occurs without the driver ever knowing. The vehicle may be uninsured as the result of a direct deposit payment issue, moving to a new address, or many other reasons. Frequently, the Massachusetts RMV will also revoke the registration of a vehicle if they learn that there has been a lapse of insurance.
Often times, drivers are unaware that this violation is a criminal offense as the original notice of the crime comes in the form of a traffic ticket or “Massachusetts Uniform Citation.”
