in the state of texas there was an accident where a biker collided with a car. There were no injuries but damage to both the bike and car. the cop was nearby and observed the accident and came to the scene. The biker didn't have insurance but both the biker and driver were friends and agreed to settle the damage costs without involving insurance companies. The biker was fined for not having insurance. The question here is whether the officer had the right to get involved. no one was injured and no one called the cops. Can this be used in court to dismiss or reduce the fine? Another question. Can you get a fine for driving with expired plates if you just bought the vehicle?
