Glad to hear that our Police Department is on top of the crime wave of unregistered vehicles. I feel safer walking the streets. Now how about quieting down the Huddle Bar so my quality of life is better?????? Duh, What a concept.

You think "they" care about having insurance? They have no assets, or class.

Margie, I'm quite sure you'd be critcizing the Police if Godforbid you or someone in your family was injured or had their car totalled by someone who had no insurance. You'd want to know what they were doing to combat it. The fact is that part of a Police Officer's duties during their shift is to enforce vehicle and traffic laws. Unfortunately for you I guess, is that they are the Sleepy Hollow Police Dept. and not the Margie Lang Police Dept. Also, have you peeked out of your window recently? There is a Police Officer posted on Beekman Ave. nightly to address the issues in that area. The Police Dept. and the usually two officers that are on the road (often 16hrs at a time) are tasked with enforcing laws throughout the entire village, not just outside of Margie Lang's window. Duh, what a concept.

The law is flawed, if you switch insurance companies but neglect to notify the DMV they will suspend your registration even if you were continuously covered. The insurance company you dropped is required to notify DMV that you are no longer covered by them but the new company is not required to notify them that you are currently using them, it is up to the registered owner to notify the DMV of the new coverage.
