At what point is it okay to step in? My SIL doesn't make her car payments and has NO insurance on the car but she drives my niece around all the time, if something were to happen, or if the car were to get towed... I don't know if I should step in and call the car lot or the cops and say 'hey my SIL is being an idiot please for the sake of my niece take this car away from her'
And before you think I'm awful, I have done research and found insurance she can afford. She's not broke, she has money she just would rather spend it on going to the movies and out to dinner then on car insurance and car payments.... :( I want to step in but I'm afraid it's just going to make everything worse.

This isn't child abuse, nor will it cause emotional or bodily harm to her daughter should she get pulled over and toed. I would leave this one alone.

Also, it sounds like she has really drawn you into this situation and made it your problem. The amount of stress it causes you is coming through in your question. Because it won't hurt your niece, you should look at drawing some clear boundaries with her that prevent her problems from becoming yours in the future.
