Didn't you say it was $3,200/6mo? That's still a lot but not $700/mo...
And you should probably clarify for people here that's for 2 cars.
I'm going to guess that Houston has higher than average insurance costs too.
Its about 540.month, but because I paid late last month they are requiring future payments pro-rated in addition to the 540. I am actually in College Station, home of Texas A&M University- College Town. They claim that is the reason for the increase. Also, my Jetta is indeed on this policy and is only about $65/ month of that equation. The GTI is the rest of it.

Yup... me, too!


I've worked in the dark by using work lights. Working in the cold really blows and rain is a total show-stopper. I've seen a bit of rain while overhauling my communications setup...


Great Googely Moogely!

Before the increase I was paying just over $200 month for both cars. Some kind of bombshell happened...

Just be careful driving around dude, the whole "I decided to no longer be a pawn of the law" isn't going to fly in court. Even worse if you hit somebody

And I could care less what a judge thinks. My opinion of them throwing the book at me for something I didnt do has that profession on my shit list.

you go king, tell that judge to suck your above-the-law balls
Why should I conform to the law when they did me wrong and were not held accountable for it ?????? What the judge said was the etched in stone decision, didnt matter if I was innocent or not. Seems fair...

Maybe you "should not" conform to the law... just saying that ain't gonna fly as a defense 🤷‍♂️.
Nobody really cares what a judge thinks, they just have to comply with the judgment unless/until they appeal.
(not saying I think the oft problematic court system should add taking appeals on traffic violations to their list of things to do).

Cancelled registration on it because I decided to not be a pawn to the law of "must have insurance as required by law." Insurance inflation went too far this time and I can't afford $700 month insurance payments, nor do I want to. Treating customers like we are ATM's and they can just punch it whatever number they feel like. FUCK them greedy ass bitches :mad:. Thanks for pushing me into my dark side where I think evil things.

So are you just going to drive it around unregistered and uninsured, or...?

Obviously I don't know anything about your prior run ins with the law, but I will agree that 1) the justice system is broken and 2) if you don't stick up for yourself people will take full advantage of you

With that said showing a little bit of respect will get you much further in life then going around with a chip on your shoulder. I'm sure you're smart enough to figure out whether walking into a courtroom with the attitude of "idgaf about you (the judge) or what you think of me" will help or hurt you

Good luck with the current situation. If you've been thinking about moving to a new zip code, now might be the time to do it... could save you a lot of $ and headache
