How do you get cited for not having car insurance?

Why didn't he get insurance after he was busted for the same thing a month earlier? Maybe, he can buy a round of drinks at the Elks Club and all will be forgotten.

Here's something not mentioned in all this commentary: Maybe the drunks should learn how to cross a busy street when going from one bar to the other.

M. Sullivan I completely agree with you. I live in the area and the patrons to the bars run back and forth across York Road like its nothing. I've seen so many close calls of drunks staggering across that part of the road trying to beat traffic. This one just wasn't so lucky. Maybe this will teach him for next time not to try and run out in traffic.
