Received a speeding ticket in PA, however I reside in NYC, if I pay the ticket will there be points added to drivers license? Also the ticket states my car is a 2 door when in fact it is a 4 door, is that error enough to say the ticket is defective and as a result should be dismissed?

I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago,

I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago, registered it, rendered it inoperable (had to repair the engine), and just got it working again a couple of days ago. Today, I was in a single vehicle accident where I also took out a large highway pole and sign. A state trooper showed up and recorded my insurance information; however, this vehicle is not yet on my insurance. I have insurance for my other car. What should I do? Should I contact my insurer? Should I be afraid of a "driving without insurance" ticket in my future? Ive read that there is usually a 2-week grace period to get a car insured. Is this long over for me since I purchased the car so long ago? My mechanic and some photos I have can prove the car was inoperable until a couple of days ago.

A lady fell asleep while driving and hit my parked truck.

A lady fell asleep while driving and hit my parked truck. Come to find out her insurance will not pay for damages, because she's missed payments during the time she hit me. She presented her insurance card to the officer the night she hit me. When I called the police station to inform them of this they said it's a civil matter. Basically I have to take her to small claims court. I am concerned that she got away with no insurance. I thought it was illegal not to have insurance. How do I notify the DMV of this?
