VC 16028 (a): Upon the demand of a peace officer pursuant to subdivision (b) or upon the demand of a peace officer or traffic collision investigator pursuant to subdivision (c), every person who drives a motor vehicle upon a highway shall provide evidence of financial responsibility for the vehicle that is in effect at the time the demand is made.  The evidence of financial responsibility may be provided using a mobile electronic device.  However, a peace officer shall not stop a vehicle for the sole purpose of determining whether the vehicle is being driven in violation of this subdivision.

What is 16028 (a) vc Driving Without Insurance?

16028 a VC  is the Vehicle Code section dealing with driving without insurance in California. If convicted, this code section carries stiff financial penalties of $900.

You will end up in traffic court under VC 16028(a) if:

  • You were the driver of  a vehicle
  • Upon a public road or highway
  • You did not have evidence of financial responsibility (proof of insurance) for the vehicle driven

However, if you actually had valid insurance for the vehicle at the time the traffic ticket was issued, then you can show proof to the court and get this charge dismissed for a $25 dismissal fee.  If you do this, you do not have to pay the vc 16028 (a) penalty fine amount in full.

Sometimes even if you did not have valid insurance at the time the citation was issued, but you got insurance after the fact, the court will still dismiss the charge for $25 (although the court is not legally obligated to do so because you technically didn’t comply with the law since in this situation you didn’t have valid insurance for the vehicle at the time you were driving).

If you get insurance for the same vehicle after the fact, in some cases the court will not dismiss the charge for $25, but the court may still reduce your fine amount since you were at least diligent enough to get valid insurance soon after the citation was issued.
