MA Uninsured Penalties:

Compulsory motor vehicle liability insurance is discussed in chapter 90: Section 34J of the General Laws of Massachusetts. Here it states that being without insurance on a motor vehicle is punished by a fine not less than $500 nor more than $5000 or by imprisonment for not more than 1 year or both the fine and jail time.

The law goes on to say that any person convicted of being uninsured shall be liable for the amount greater of $500 or 1 year's premium for compulsory motor vehicle insurance for the highest rated territory and class or risk in effect at the time of the commission of the offense.

A person cited for driving without insurance may also have their driver's license suspended for 60 days by the Registry of Motor Vehicles and likely their registration and tags to the vehicle suspended as well. The fees for having your license restored are quite steep and can immediately take away any savings you may have found for driving without insurance or with less than the minimum required.
