What would happen to a driver that comes from another state and drives here in California?

I have a drivers license and auto insurance in California. But lets say that someone comes from another state and drives here in California and that person has less than the minimum amount required here in CA which is $15,000 dollars of financial responsibility in the insurance policy and that person gets a ticket or has an accident would that person get in trouble?

usually someone just driving through is exempt from certain things....however all states require at least liability coverage which would be the 15k amount

If the other driver still lives in his state, his state auto insurance liabilities apply to an accident occurring in California.If you are trying to get your car registered out of state and return to California to live under another state's insurance it wont work. Your information on the insurance must match your driver license.

Try again. I think there is ONE state that does not require liability insurance for cars. The minimum in most states is MUCH more than gary

5,000. That wouldn't cover a MINOR accident WITHOUT injuries in most vehicles.
