I was pulled over by an officer back in July. He stated that he was pulling me over because my record showed that I did not have insurance. I showed him prove of insurance but he did not accept that. He told me that the MVA was insisting that he take my plates and that I had to call a tow truck because of the insurance. When the tow truck came he did not even tell me that he was writing me a ticket. He just handed me a paper and said to send it back with in 30 days. He never told me what the citations were for. When I looked at the ticket it was for the insurance and many other things stating that I was knowingly driving vehicle w/o registration. I had no clue, I just renewed the registration 3 months prior. When he pulled me over I was not even speeding. I was just sitting in traffic waiting to move. I tried to show him my insurance but he would not accept it. Since he stated he was pulling me over for insurance are the other charges valid? He never mentioned anything about my registration and I as far as knew my registration was valid.
