Three or four years ago my car was totaled by the wreckless driving of a person without insurance. While my car was destroyed, the other guys truck was still drivable and he provided fake insurance information. All he got was a ticket. Now, “Gov. Janet Napolitano has signed a bill cracking down on uninsured motorists.” It’s about time. Read the article on AZCentral.com. I’m not sure about other states, but this is a big problem here in Arizona because of the number of illegal aliens who don’t have car insurance. It just increases legitimate insurance costs.
Signed into law Monday, Senate Bill 1420 will make a 30-day impoundment mandatory and impose a $500 mandatory fine for a lack of insurance, up from $200. Motorists will be slapped with a $700 fine for the second offense within three years.
