Hard to believe anybody could be stupid enough to drive without insurance. I was shocked at the price of insurance in Vancouver. They are paying monthly what we pay annually.

I love how big a deal they make it that he's driving an aventador, $568 is alot of money, and you don't exactly get a car like that by squandering all your money. Most of the richest people are rich because they hold on to every penny. Doesn't matter if its an Aventador or a Pinto, $500 is $500... Sounds like a jealous rant by the writer of this article.

Read this over on Jalopnik. Based on the quote he gave, saying it's "too expensive" I'd wager he was referring to the cost of insurance instead of the ticket. I'd imagine it is pretty pricey for a 22 (or whatever) year old. Though it's not an excuse not to have it.

Seems like people just love to hate people with nice things.

Yes, all Lambo owners should hand out charity checks to government. That's communist my friend.

Back in 2009, cops were vicious in writing tickets for anything from not having head lights on at dawn, tint, no front plate, etc. Totally unacceptable and a disgrace to LE community to being revenue generators.

I doubt insurance in CAN for exotics is 14k per year. Can someone in CAN confirm it is that high? That is 7-10x more what US insurance costs.

Ontario male under 25 with 2 insured cars (multi car policy discount of X% not sure what %), ~$4k a year for my 08 G. I think it's based off purchase price, so an Aventador is 3-4x the price of my G...

25 is the age in Canada where insurance drops a lot, not sure if you have that in America

Yes it is, and that would be cheap!! A buddy got quoted $50,000 per year, and another person a $75k deductible. $14k is cheap. We live in a socialist state here in BC.

Speeding tickets can VERY easily be $200,000 or more, since they take your car for doing 25mph over the limit.

Stay away from the automotive hell known as British Columbia. You have been warned.

Now having ranted, the state owned insurance, ICBC, is reducing their rates on exotics, after jacking them up 5-15X.

Still very high, many times higher than before all this insanity started, but maybe the Aventador guys will be able to afford the insurance now.....

For an Aventador, I would now expect to pay at least $10,000 premium with maybe $25K deductible, with zero tickets and perfect driving record, with at least 20 years driving experience. As I said, even China is less communist than BC.

No chance for private insurance with uber exotics, although a measily Gallardo can be partially insured for optional part of the insurance (ex third-party liability) privately if u have a perfect driving record. Only 1 private company offers optional insurance for those with elite driving experience.

Sucks bad here. Thinking of moving Stateside. Best places to live in the US for car lovers near the ocean?

Canada Sucks.

If you are of the commie/socialist mentality, then that hell hole of a country is for you.

I knew Canada was a $hitty place to live when I heard your neighbors can call the cops on you if they think you are speeding. That's not the bad part.

The cops will impound your car and give you a huge ticket even though they haven't seen you do anything. You could be sitting on the couch watching "Cops" and then you'd see yourself getting hauled off to some canadian clink for a frosty rogering. No thanks.

Stateside, near the ocean? Hmm, I think we have great roads in Northern Califronia near the coast. But does florida have a no front license plate law?

Florida is probably your best bet. Cheap as hell to live there, no front plate needed. Cons are it gets hot as hell there and all the roads are flat and boring. Oh, and watch out for the love bugs...they will smother your car and eat up your Lamborghini paint like it's a buffet!

Wow. Thankfully, here in Saskatchewan, the insurance is CHEAP. One insures the car globally, so that anyone can drive it, regardless of age.

My car cost me about $3000 to insure for the year. Anyone can drive. My deductible is something like $750.00 :) Saskatchewan may not be the most geographically exciting place to live, but it has its merits :) :) :)

Carbuff, I agree - B.C., in terms of car insurance, SUCKS BALLS. It's the same in Alberta, and most of the other provinces.

That said, my wife and I are looking at retiring out there, some day..... :D

Great place to live, but only for car haters! Best overall and mildest weather in Canada, so that is a plus.

But with the priciest real estate and giant penalties for driving an elite car, BC stands for "Bring Cash"!
