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.
