Homeless people living in their cars?

Postby bohdan » Sat May 26, 2012 1:38 am

Am I the only one who wonders how homeless people living in their cars pay the car insurance? As far as im aware car insurance is mandatory in all 50 states, so how do these people not pay? Or are they lucky enough not get stopped by the police and have their car impounded?

Samuel, with all due respect, have you considered that a home might run $600 more or less on average for rent, and car insurance might run $50 or $100? Being homeless means being without a home, not without car insurance. It also does not necessarily mean being without some sort of job, whereby people could afford some necessities, but forgoing a home for a while could mean one getting back on his feet.

And why do some people also think that being homeless means you also automatically don't have a cell phone or some sort of inexpensive computer? Or anything? A home is often the biggest expense.

A "homeless" person could be a scroungy bum, but it could also be a person who simply doesn't have a home at the present time. He probably grew up in a home and probably will have one again.

There are some very cheap insurance companies out there maybe costing you $50/month or so.. it beats rent. the other question is how do they keep their driver's license without an address? most states wont accept po boxes.. i guess it;s a temporary thing until you either get pulled over or your plates get run. either way people must sadly be at the end of the rope if they're sleeping in their car. Some people have family or friends to help out when they are down and out and others sadly don't.
