True, our immigration laws need to be enforced to prevent this. Eisenhower implementented Operation W.et B.ack and was successful in having many of the illegals return home on their own.

Having identification won't solve the problem but if they have nothing they shouldn't be left on their own. At least these that you arrested were found to be someone else,(even if it still wasn't the truth).

Maybe we should do like some other countries and when they are arrested they don't get fed unless their families bring them food.

No insurance, no car. I had insurance when I drove a $400 POS. Don't give me that crap. You just want to spend your money on something else. Refuse to buy insurance, then don't drive. If you "reck" what about the other person? You don't care, do you. Well then that makes you a lowlife piece of dog squeeze. Go back to where you came from.

If you can't afford the insurance you can't afford the car.

They are getting more and more smart about the insurance deal in the tag offices, finally. Alot of people simply pay for the insurance to start it and get a card that shows 6 months of coverage so they can get a tag. That doesn't mean they still have it two months later. If they don't pay then the insurance is dropped but they still have the card showing coverage but it means nothing. So most tag offices, and police when they stop you, will make the calls to verify that you are still covered.
If you are implying that this is what I do then you can go to hell. I pay my bills and have always carried insurance on my cars. I have two young children and I will NOT drive them around uninsured. What ended up being the problem was my vin number had been transposed and instead of the lady at the tag office saying the VIN number didnt exist she told me I didnt have coverage.

I'm not a rich person and I insure 10 vehicles... seems like I get more mail from State Farm than anyone else at times so don't give me some lame excuse about cost...,...Of course if you are an irresponsible type with such a bad driving record insurance companies don't want your business... it's time to walk.

You need to change insurance companies if they are not open the same hours as the tag office.
I think this will mostly effect those people who change insurance companies a lot. Those who stay with the same company for years will be fine. i always keep my old cards and my new ones in the glove box. It shows I have carried insurance a long time so I would probably get the benefit of the doubt.
As for waiting on tow trucks? Story will be there in minutes.
Think of the money to be made off uninsured vehicles....
by after hours I mean at night. I have to get up at 2:30am for work so I drive early morning hours 5 daily.

seems to me there would be less hit and runs if we got the people without insurance off the street. its a lot better than the law we have to get them off the street now wich is no law.

Hit and run drivers tend to ignore the law.

It would not matter what law was made they would not obey it.

I was making the point that just because you brought in verification didn't mean they wouldn't still verify it was current and that's something that's really pretty new for most tag offices. I never implied you didn't have insurance. It was clearly stated in your post that I replied too that you did have insurance, I CAN READ.

Smells like more Republican rhetoric rationalizing that they are making everyone safer while actually lining the pockets of big insurance companies, one of their main campaign contributors. If they really wanted to fix the system they would have mandated all insurance providers MUST include an uninsured motorist rider within every policy they write & for an affordable price. In addition implement the system where Tag Agents can verify a person has insurance at the time of buying a tag & Police can see so too with a significant dollar increase on violations. What they have done is diminish people's rights & feed money to Big Business (insurance), tow truck racketeers & dirty police departments getting towing kick-backs while targeting those who already can't afford insurance.

My daughters boyfriend was driving her car and he got pulled over and recieved no traffic tickets but when he was asked to show insurance verification he told the officer it was in the car but could not find it, the car was impounded and the car does have insurance, now i am having to pay over 200 dollars to get the car out of impound, this is totally wrong i pay my insurance and now i have to pay because the verification wasnt in the car. I dont get it. I am barely making it and now this right when the holidays are here. Is this even apart of the new law. I get it if i had no insurance but i do.

I thought they already could do this.

Hell, I have a friend who had his towed for simply having an outdated tag in Sapulpa.

If the vehicle is not being driven, then there is no law that says the owner must maintain insurance. The car you talking about has flat tires and an expired tag. It has been parked in the same spot for awhile so it is obviously not being used. The compulsory insurance law only applies to those vehicles driven on the roadways.
And if the bank still holds the title, the bank requires the vehicle to be ensured or they will come repo that sucker. But dead tags and flat tires, probably paid for, not being driven, is like having an old clunker on blocks and no insurance required.
