    9. New York Vehicle and Traffic Law (“Vehicle Law”) § 318.1 requires all owners
    of motor vehicles with New York license plates to maintain liability insurance coverage on those
    vehicles at all times, even if not driven, unless the owner surrenders the license plates.

    10. In the event that there is a lapse of insurance coverage for 90 days or less, a
    vehicle owner has a choice of paying a civil penalty or turning the license plates in to the DMV
    for a suspension period.

    11. The civil penalty option is not available if the insurance lapse was for more than
    90 days or if the owner used the civil penalty option for a registration suspension within the
    previous 36 months.
    12. The civil penalty is calculated as follows:
    Insurance Lapse
    In Days Civil Penalty
    1-30 days $8 per day
    30-60 days $10 per day
    6l_90 days $12 per day
    13. Therefore, for example, if there is an insurance lapse of 25 days, an owner can
    pay a civil penalty of $200 ($8 per day for 25 days) and keep his license plates or the owner must
    surrender the license plates and serve a registration suspension of 25 days.

    14. In the event that a registration suspension period exceeds 90 days, the DMV will
    also suspend the registrant’s driver’s license.
