The person who purchased my car got a ticket

I sold my vehicle but the title hasn’t been transferred and they haven’t gotten insurance yet. They got a ticket and it is showing up on my insurance record. Can I be held responsible even though I sold the vehicle?

solIf you sold the vehicle, and thus have proof of this, you should be able to contest the ticket with the proof of sale through your state DMV. What I would recommend is contacting your DMV with 3 things:

  • Any bill of sale or other supporting documentation of sale
  • Insurance documentation showing that you no longer insure the vehicle
  • DMV receipts from your license plate transfer or other supporting documentation
