Your 2 Cents: Law To Crack Down On Uninsured Drivers Rarely Enforced

Posted: Updated:

The new state law designed to crack down on motorists driving without insurance isn't working.

Our 9 Investigates team found it's rarely being enforced. I say tweak if it if it needs to be changed because we're still dead worst in the nation when it comes to the percentage of uninsured drivers on our roads.

Here's what you had to say.

Lisa first: "if someone is found at fault in a car wreck and they have no insurance, they need to have their driver's license revoked and their car sold to help cover the damage."

Neal from Okeene: "Not enforcing the law on the books is not an option for any law abiding citizen let alone law enforcement!"

I get this a lot, Jim in Norman asks: "What is the difference between the state of Oklahoma deciding that health insurance for everyone is unconstitutional and a private citizen deciding car insurance is unconstitutional."

Ryan in Broken Arrow answers: "Only people that drive are required to buy auto insurance."

Correct, and driving is a privilege not a right.

Roseanne says: "1. Give them a hefty fine.,

2.Hefty fine and jail time

3.CAR IMPOUNDED OR AUCTIONED OFF Would solve the problem."

And finally, Robert suggests: "why can't we have a task force go thru walmart, buy for less, and other stores parking lots and pull tags on out of date paper tags and overdue expired tags? Or is it too dangerous to be in a parking lot too?"

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's Your 2 Cents.
