  1. In most counties, if it's a a pre-built with no permanent foundation, they don't require you too. I don't know about Paulding. Your best bet would be to wait until Monday morning and call the permit office; (770) 443-7571.
  2. Wow, I thought I was the only one who did this! Whether it helps or not, if I got pulled over without the current one, I could show the officer where I have had insurance on the vehicle, steadily, for the past 10 years and that it's likely a mistake. Maybe it would help, maybe not... But I would rather show a continuous insurance history than nothing at all. Maybe Ugadawgs98 or Mr. Dis or someone else from the law enforcement community can post up as to whether doing this would be beneficial or not.
  3. There's probably no point in explaining since you can't see the difference in being taxed and redistributed wealth vs direct financial harm due to negligence. If a financial planner loses my money, I took the risk by letting them manage my money. It's my responsibility to do the research and pick a planner that will do the job I pay them to do. If you hit me and the accident is your fault, it was due to negligence. I have no say so in you getting your drivers license, how YOU maintain YOUR vehicle, nor how YOU operated said vehicle on a public roadway. I have no responsibility to
  4. Did you seriously just say that someone not having car insurance doesn't affect you but someone not having health insurance does? Sorry, but yes, someone not having car insurance DOES affect you. Start making uninsured motorist claims against your policy and let's see how long you keep paying the same premiums or keep the policy in effect before the insurance company cancels it.
  5. The primary role of government is to protect one person from another, from physical or financial harm. The role of government is NOT to provide healthcare to anyone. Having a law that says you HAVE to have basic insurance is protecting ME from YOU, in case an accident is YOUR fault. That said 'basic' insurance, mandated by government, does not protect YOU in an accident... it protects the other party. If YOU want to be protected by insurance in an accident that YOU caused, YOU pay for additional insurance that covers YOUR vehicle for YOUR mistakes.
  6. They were probably put on with an impact wrench and whoever did it just let it hammer on them. Any good tire shop should be able to handle this. DO NOT allow them to re-thread the studs... they need to be replaced. Replace ALL the studs and lug nuts that were affected. And be sure to keep all receipts and make Wal-Mart pay for it. Vic Williams, D&A Tire, or any of the larger retail tire shops should be able to handle this with no problem... ... or any reputable mechanic can do this also. OEM Studs and lug nuts usually are in the $2-$5/each range. ...and for the
  7. You might want to call and report it, especially if they had been working in the area. A buddy of mine used to be a Bellsouth/ATT tech and he said that a lot of techs would do the follow: If a customer called up reporting a slow connect and the tech came out and found a less than par pair that was causing problems... and there were no spare pairs left in the box, what they would do is disconnect your line and switch it to another working pair. If the person they swapped you with didn't have DSL, they were golden and didn't have to troubleshoot or fix anything... if they did have DS
  8. He towed it. Yes, you can. And if you get caught, you go to jail. You cannot LEGALLY drive a car, on a public roadway, without insurance. Call what in? The information they get on the MDT's in their car is the same information they get from dispatch. If the drive would have provided an insurance card with a valid date on it showing valid insurance, he would have accepted that over the computer. Sorry, that's not true. If you let your insurance lapse, they notify the state and the state will suspend your registration (TAG), not your drivers license.
  9. It's reported to the state. The states uses the report to make the tag invalid because of lack of insurance. The state does NOT report this to local law enforcement. Law enforcement would have absolutely no way of knowing if the insurance is valid or not, until they ran it. He ran it and it came back invalid. The driver had no way to prove they have valid insurance. The officer made the arrest/confiscation with the information he/she had at the time. He was well justified.
  10. I would agree! Typically, they will run tags while they are stopped at a traffic light or patrolling a parking lot, etc... If a person gets run while going down the road, especially a mile from their residence, there is good likelihood that they did something to catch the officers eye.
  11. Just an FYI... The motto "To Protect and Serve" is that of the police, not the Sheriff's Dept. Second, yes, police and sheriff's (and other law enforcement) do run people car tags while they are on patrol. No, they are not too busy to do this.. they do it all the time. No, they are not violating any laws or invading your privacy, by doing so. Your tag is displayed in public. They run tags quite often. They do this to look for reported stolens, unregistered vehicles, incorect tag to vehicles, and no insurance. And lastly, in Georgia you are not required to carry proof of
  12. They will be in Savannah this weekend.
  13. The report I heard said that they had held the man up at his door for over an hour, arguing back and forth.
  14. It's going WAY too far. If that would have happened at my house, they would have been told to get the hell off my property and got the door slammed in their face. If they didn't remove themselves from my property, they would have been arrested for trespassing. If they had tried to force their way in, someone would have been shot.
  15. Mr.Dis, I think a lot of people confuse "search" and "pat down" and think they are the same thing. A pat down is what is typically known as a "frisk" and doesn't involved looking at the contents of a purse, pockets, etc. It's simply where the officer "pats" or "rubs" along your bodyline, OUTSIDE of the clothing to feel for large dense objects that may be a weapon. Would you agree?
