• I just got into a scooter accident with a suspended license. Accident was the other person's fault? Can I still get a ticket?

    So my scooter has not been registered to me yet and according to Florida law we don't need to insure the scooter so I'm good there. But, my license is suspended for not paying past multiple tickets. Before you judge me for not paying, what legal requirements do I have if it was the lady's fault who hit... show more
    So my scooter has not been registered to me yet and according to Florida law we don't need to insure the scooter so I'm good there. But, my license is suspended for not paying past multiple tickets. Before you judge me for not paying, what legal requirements do I have if it was the lady's fault who hit me? I'm in the emergency room now probably with a, broken leg because she threw me off the scooter and my scooter is totaled.

I don't care about the look and power switching cars, mainly seeing your thoughts about saving money and overall efficiency. Is the Smartcar reliable?

  • Am I at fault for the wreck?

    If I am to the right of a vehicle who isn't using any turn signals and he turns right without looking to see if there was a car there, am I at fault for the incident ? It was on an exit from a banks parking lot. There are no lane markings and he was in the middle leaving enough room for someone to be on the right. show more

  • Should I drive my car to the shop with a bad ignition coil?

    My brother says to bring the car to his job during his lunch break and he will fix it. He says it should be ok to drive (its 11 miles away) but I'm nervous it will damage something else. Should I take it there or wait for him to come to me?

  • Will removing car four will drive hurt my car?

    My front drive shaft or axial in my 1998 Ford Explorer got damaged recently, it is a four wheel drive . The mechanic told me that I can either remove the axial and the car will become a two wheel drive or I should repair the damaged axial. I want to save some money since repairing the axial will mean buying a new one so I am thinking of just removing it this will be cheaper. I don’t live in a winter state were it snows a lot, I live in California, so converting to two wheel drive will not cause skids. The question is will this hurt my car? Is this a bad idea? The transmission was build with a four wheel drive and it has been driven like that since 1998, please help me I know nothing about cars. Thanks in advance.

    Best answer: FYI We readers need the lengthy version of the story in order to assess the issue(if any)
    "the plates were expired since jul/17 (I bought the car on nov/17)." NORMAL, no problem... not an issue>>Car legally could be driven on public roads until jul17 then NO MORE.until more insurance was bought for it again. It HAS to be parked in the YARD.(parking on the street is the public road)

    "So he told me that the only thing I should do next was take myself (get a ride, transit or walk) to the DMV and register the vehicle under my name and to tell the administrative to fill all the paperwork for me"
    HE TOLD THE TRUTH. Just hand them the paperwork and they will thin it out for you & tell you what to do and where to go NEXT.
    . You are best to act "DUMB LIKE SHEEP" and let them do the processing for you. It is their world of knowledge....you give them all the paperwork and they will hand you back the paperwork you need to have and they "TRASH THE REST". Do have money because you got to buy new license plates for YOU (@$25) Also as they will be doing the transfer papers, they will ask what was the purchase price(because they tax you on that value in some states) if the sold price is not put on the form. Sometimes the seller will let the buyer put in that number himself (which is fine.) You pay DMV the tax money. Most of my cars are valued at $300.00 or so, so tax is small amount. >IMO Government gets enough money in gas taxes<so I keep the price low, especially on a USED CAR bought at Auction.(it really can not have THAT much value to it...meaning repairs are needed...so car is worth less than a good car with nothing wrong with it...FACE IT, you will HAVE PROBLEMS SOON, so the value is LOW. Totally legal.
    . The car does not ALWAYS HAVE TO BE INSURED OR DRIVEN ON THE ROAD. You ARE ALLOWED TO PARK IT...and NOT DRIVE IT. Once insurance period expires, you SHOULD NOT DRIVE IT because if you get into an accident, the fault WILL BE YOURS. No insurance= a world of BUTT HURT. Many people cannot insure a car for a full year because it costs BIG $$. Or they don't drive it in the winter, or when they are not working, or for other reasons...such as going on a YEAR LONG HOLIDAY so they cash in the plates and the insurance to get some money back...mailed to them for the months remaining on their insurance. Or they got nailed with a DUI and their license was suspended for a year or longer...so take off the driving insurance and put on storage insurance onto the car(100 bucks instead of $1000) so getting that cash back in the mail is their money that is not used as the car is PARKED in the yard...up on blocks.
    . When they CAN drive again, they reinsure the vehicle and replate it and they are good to go.

    You don't need a lawyer or GOD to help you here. Just do what the seller said and have a wad of cash to insure the car. They can insure the car for a 6 month period or even less...if you cannot afford the full year of insurance. But you ALWAYS SHOULD HAVE INSURANCE ON THE CAR when driving it on the road, or when parked on the street in front of your house as the road is COP PATROLLED & THEY CALL THE TOW TRUCK guys.

    This is NORMAL PROCEDURE...Well, very common. You know that the original owner is the car manufacturer.(FORD,CHEV,DODGE,etc and you have the VIN)
    You are good. It is not a BIG DEAL like you make it out to be.

    I have bought and sold some 40 vehicles so have experienced this paperwork shuffle.

    LET THEM DO IT.

    I am not going to apologize for the long reply.
    They at DMV see this paper work muddle all the time every day 365.
    They will DICTATE EVERYTHING YOU MUST DO TO APPEASE THEM, as you GOT to make them happy.

    We are Cool, right?

  • Should I do a complete transmission flush next time or not?

    I have a 2011 Toyota Corolla 1.8 VVTI engine. I bought the car back in 2016 with 84k. The transimission fluid was chocolate but I didn't have that burnt smell yet when I changed the fluid (which is good) should I do a complete flush next time since half of the fluid is still there?

  • Does putting overdrive on when going uphill save gas?

    Best answer: O/D is designed to save fuel. Going uphill, your car will automatically downshift (out of OD) if necessary.

    So in a recent car accident, the other driver had no insurance, she was a young girl who claimed her parents took her off their insurance without her knowing so she was not driving intentionally without insurance, though I'm not sure if that has any relevance. The car I was driving was borrowed, insurance covered me but only for state minimum. The young lady claimed against the insurance but her claim was above the insurance limit. She says she will sue for the outstanding amount, I was then told that if I'm unable to pay she can apply for a wages garnishment to ensure she receives full payment. First Is that correct? If so will she need to proceed with suing me first then apply for garnishment? (California)
