Why is my insurance (progressive) calling about having some affidavit signed about my other car now which isnt exactly in running condition when i took it off my policy years ago?

Why is my insurance (progressive) calling about having some affidavit signed about my other car now which isnt exactly in running condition when i took it off my policy years ago? I dont understand how them knowing more or getting information about my car not in use makes any sense. Theyve been calling and emailing about it for quite some time. I dont know what an affidavit is or why theyre persistent in knowing any more than just the car has been taken off the policy.

Best Answer:

If you failed to insure it by any other company and you still own the car, then you are in violation of the law. Doing things illegally are going to creep up on you. You ought to have learned when you were getting your license that it is illegal to own a car and not insure it. It makes no difference whether or not it is running or what condition it is in.

Other answer:

Kenshin XI:
Different states have different laws. So without knowing what the affidavit is for or which state you are from it's hard to tell. Googling this issue tells me at least in California you are required by law to give a affidavit of non use if you want to cancel your car insurance or you would face severe fines.

Do you have plates on that vehicle? How about registration? If the vehicle is registered, in most states, insurance is mandatory. Since you removed the vehicle from your policy, it was reported to the state. The state is likely now requiring this affidavit signed by you…this isn't something progressive does voluntarily.
