Pulled over for expired registration, but the car is not yours?

I often get calls from people who have been ticketed for driving a vehicle with an expired tag.
Many times the car is owned by a friend or a parent.
The most common question is, since the car doesn't belong to me, was I charged properly?

The Georgia law is quite clear, it is the drivers responsibility to ensure that the vehicle has proper and up-to-date registration. It is also the driver's responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is covered by proper and up-to-date vehicle liability insurance.

Do not drive any vehicle unless you can prove, that the registration is up to date and the vehicle insurance is up-to-date.
