Proof of Financial Responsibility & Penalties
Under Massachusetts law, you are required to provide documentary proof of Financial Responsibility when registering your vehicle or at the request of law enforcement officials.
Car insurance companies are required to notify the Massachusetts Registrar of Motor Vehicles whenever the insured fails to maintain an insurance policy. The Registrar will then advise law enforcement authorities, and your vehicle registration and license plates can then be seized.
If you are unable to produce proof of liability coverage when requested, the penalties can be harsh, with fines ranging from $500 to $5,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.
