I got a speeding ticket on the Ohio turnpike last week, and couldn't find my insurance card. No biggie, the officer just said to send proof of insurance in with my ticket payment.

Other part being, the car is technically my mom's. . . . as in, I'm 22, but she said to put it under her name so she could put it under her name for insurance. I pay her the $50/month or so when I can (summer, and around getting my financial aid checks for school) for it.

So I went to call to get a replacement card today, and they say that all her stuff was cancelled this past December becuase she didn't pay it, and they don't know where she took her insurance. I dunno. I'm almost CERTAIN that I got an insurance card this past March. Like, 90% sure. And she never said anything to me.

So I called her and she said "Well talk about it when I get home from work." And then I semi-freaked out saying "Well, I'd just like to know if that's TRUE because I'll need to figure something out." and she said not to worry.

My question about all of this being, while I hope it's just a mistake in the papers at the insurance company. . . what if it's not? Have any of you dealt with this and know if there's any way I can get around having my license suspended for driving w/o insurance?
