How to Get Uninsured Motorists Off Our Streets

I just read an email where in Texas they were having lots of accidents involving uninsured motorists. They started towing the cars away from the scene to impound lots and required the owners to pay a fine of $350.00 and show proof of insurance before the cars were released. Soon the impound lots were filling up so they started charging 20.00/day storage fee.

 

The accident rates have declined dramatically and so have the amount of uninsured motorists. It’s my opinion all states should follow Texas’ lead on this since there are many of uninsured motorists on our streets. I know of many times where someone I know was hit by an uninsured and even unlicensed motorist and was let drive away from the scene even though it’s illegal to drive without a license or insurance!!!
