Q

In Wichita, Kansas I got pulled over and couldn't show proof of car insurance, but I have insurance. I just didn't put the insurance card in the car, dumb I know. Can I get the ticket dismissed since I really am insured? I am a Kansas resident.


A

Yes, you should be able to get your driving without insurance or no proof of insurance ticket dismissed since you were really insured at the time of the ticket.

Kansas law (Kansas Statute 40-3104) allows that if evidence of financial security, which was valid at the time of arrest or of issuance of the citation, can be shown to the court then you cannot be convicted of the offense of driving without insurance after your insurance is verified with your car insurance company.

You likely are given a time frame in which to show your proof of insurance to the court. Contact the court listed on your citation as soon as possible to find out by what date you have to provide proof of your car insurance and what actual documentation they will accept as proof. The clerk of the court should be able to tell you what exactly to do in order to get your driving without insurance citation dismissed.

We found that the municipal court of Wichita, Kansas says online, that if you are cited for no proof of insurance and can show proof that you had an automobile Liability insurance policy in place at the time the citation was issued then you can bring your citation to the Court Clerk's Office to have it dismissed. Again, we would recommend you call them first before going in to find out what proof of insurance to bring in.

If instead,you were charged with knowingly driving without insurance because you did not have insurance at the time of the citation, the municipal court says you will be required to set the citation for court.
