Unhappy Had insurance but failed to intimate pennDot

Hello,
I had cancelled my earlier insurance and obtained the insurance with new company without any lapse in the insurance coverage. However I failed to intimate PennDOT about this insurance within 30 days. Now i see a letter from PennDOT to pay Civil penalty of $500 plus restoration fee.
Just wanted to know if there is a way to avoid this fees as i never had a lapse in Insurance, but it is just my ignorance to inform PennDOT.

According to the fact sheet from Penn.dot:

Quote:
Please note that insurance companies are required to notify PennDOT when an insurance policy is cancelled by [/SIZE][SIZE=3]the insured or the insurer. Insurance companies are NOT required by law to notify PennDOT when a vehicle owner acquires a new insurance policy with the same or different insurance company. It is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to notify PennDOT of the new insurance after receiving a letter of inquiry from PennDOT. Failure to respond to PennDOT’s letter of inquiry will result in the suspension of the vehicle registration.

Note the emphasis.

I suggest you boogie on down to the nearest PennDot location with the originals and duplicates of your insurance papers showing no lapse in coverage.

Get something in writing there to show that you have complied.

I wish to inform you that PennDOT does not receive notice of new insurance from companies. Therefore, PennDOT must send a proof letter asking the customer to provide verification that new insurance is in place for the vehicle(s) listed. The letter advises the customer how to contact the Insurance Department if they believe insurance coverage was terminated and they did not receive proper notice from their insurance company, as required by insurance laws. It also advises the customer of what to submit if the vehicle was sold, transferred, traded, salvaged or repossessed. Customers are required to return information to PennDOT showing that new insurance was obtained and that there was no lapse of insurance coverage for the vehicle or if a lapse did occur, that the lapse was only for a period of 30 days or less. If there was a lapse for a period of 30 days or less, the customer must certify that they did not operate the vehicle at any time when the vehicle was not insured. A Statement of Non-Operation of Vehicle (MV-221) accompanies the proof letter for the customer to use, if applicable. A suspension letter is received if the customer did not respond to the proof letter that was mailed OR if the customer responded to the proof letter but did not indicate they had insurance within 30 days of the cancellation date of their previous insurance and/or they did not submit a Statement of Non-Operation of Vehicle (MV-221). You may contact Customer Service in PennDOT by telephone or e-mail and seek guidance.

It is the obligation of the vehicle owner to intimate PennDOT regarding the change in insurance, otherwise the vehicle owner is liable to face penalties. It is good to contact PennDOT with relevant documents at the earliest to avoid further actions.

You're taking the OP's nonsensical English and using it yourself. Brilliant.

Maybe you can cite a reference that indicates that the word "intimate" is a verb, and what the definition is.

Now you learn something.

You waste everybody's time and annoy everybody when you make a useless comment on a 3 month old thread.
