No one bothers to get a license or insurance these days. You're a sucker if you do.

So that's why I see so many people riding bikes in the cold weather these days.

If you have a home and other tangible assets you get insurance.

If you're an illegal immigrant you don't get insurance. If you have an accident you just walk away from the responsibility. If it's a major accident you go back home for a while till the heat dies down.
