Just read Sissy's post (hey, my myth guy gets off insulting everyone for no good reason, except, of course, when he's sucking up—hate to admit it, but a role model for Rummy—also lies all the time).

Anyway, wondering if anyone is in insurance and could answer a question I don't want to ask my agent, vis a vis latest crisis with aging in-laws.

Put simply, according to Michigan law, their auto registration from California and my mother-in-law's driver's licence (father-in-law no longer drives, thank God) are no longer legal. Their legal residence is Michigan—they sold their California house and bought one here, and they were required to get Michigan registration/licence, immediately. My mother-in-law insists they might move back (turns out Michigan is cold and her friends are there—like no one warned her) so she doesn't have to obey the law. I'm looking for excuses to scare her about being an illegal alien more than she is scared of failing a driving test. I'm refusing to drive their car anymore to get gas and charge the battery until it is registered in Michigan on the grounds that I could get ticketed and have my licence suspended (might even be true).

But I am actually concerned about insurance. If she is driving in effect without a licence in an unregistered vehicle, is her insurance going to cover her if she gets in an accident? (Even if the answer is that she is covered, I may still raise doubt to push the panic button, but if she is not covered, we need to go beyond just pushing panic buttons.)
