Saint Paul, MN asked in Traffic Tickets and Car Accidents for Kansas

Q: No insurance

My husband has court tomorrow for a no insurance violation. He was also at fault for an accident when he was cited. Our car was totaled and my husband lost his job the next day and doesn't have a vehicle. Someone told me it would look better in court if he has current proof of insurance. Is this true? If so do I insure the totaled vehicle he was driving when he wrecked and got this ticket?

A: A Kansas attorney situated in or near the county where the hearing is scheduled could advise best and most cost effectively, but your question remains open for a week. It's possible the court could ask why someone would insure a non-roadworthy vehicle that was declared a total loss after the fact. It's difficult to say. Maybe the better route would be to reach out to Kansas attorneys who handle such violations - some attorneys offer free consults. Based on what you learn, your husband would be in a better position to consider options - represent self, hire attorney, etc. Good luck
