Talk about idiot, what about the OP? thats a true idiot, not to mention Fmylife.com for using this post. "Oh My God, I don't have car insurance!!!.....what do I do?"........Drive your damn car, that's what you do. Just don't be stupid and get in an accident or get pulled over, it's not that difficult of a solution
Look up the statistics for people who own cars, THEN the people who have car insurance, THEN the amount of tickets issued to uninsured drivers. I can pretty much guarantee you that number will drop significantly between each one. Unless you drive like a moron constantly, or have expired tags, or decide to slap on a huge bumper sticker that says "UNINSURED," it's really not a big deal. If you get pulled over, you'll get a ticket, but at least you'll have the money to pay it from your new job. I got pulled over a few years ago for turning left on yellow, and I didn't have insurance. All I had to do was obtain proof of insurance by the time court rolled around, pay court costs, and do eight hours of community service. Then, they wiped it from my driving record. Now, I'm once again driving without insurance and have been for quite some time, yet I haven't been pulled over since. Plus, if someone hits you, they're probably more fucked than you are.
I lived in a town of about 30,000 people and still had shitty local bus service. The buses barely went anywhere, couldn't go out of town, and had very inconvenient timing. Maybe OP works nights. Where I'm from, buses didn't go at all at night. Oh, and taxis can get damned expensive, well over $50 if OP lives a decent distance away from the job. Seeing as OP can't afford insurance, I doubt two weeks of taxis back and forth are anywhere in the budget.
NO NO NO. That's a terrible idea. They're called accidents for a reason; no one plans to have one. If OP hits someone or is found at fault for something that was unavoidable, which does happen, [s]he will be screwed. It'd be better to borrow money, or even get a credit card (something I'd only very rarely advise) to reinstate the insurance.
146, um 17 year old high school chicks, don't really count as women drivers. That's more like beginner drivers, girl drivers. Once she becomes a woman, she usually gets pretty good at driving. After all, I usually do all the driving for my husband, excepts when he drives to work.
Irish isn't worrying too much. It's illegal for a reason. Not to mention she is right, no one plans accidents, and it is always the time that you risk it that it happens. I think it's called Murphy's Law. There are plenty of alternatives if the OP put their mind to it, and it gives them of an example of initiative to give at their interview.
158, I'm 20 so I don't know many highschool chicks although I'm sure that's where the issue is. the other day i actually saw a woman do a U turn on a school zone and drove her SUV onto the curb nearly missing a group of scared preschoolers. but either way it doesn't matter. I'm sure there are good women drivers out there, op can still just be careful and get the insurance later.
Luckily, you can sign up for cheap ride program and ride to work in a windowless van and cars of the like!
