At least we have a few states that are doing some actual thinking!

Recently, the City of Dallas, Texas, passed an ordinance stating that if a driver is pulled over by law enforcement and is not able to provide proof of insurance, their car is towed.

To retrieve their car after being impounded, they must show proof of insurance to have their car released. This has made it easy for the City of Dallas to remove uninsured cars that are typically driven mostly by illegals.

Shortly after the "No Insurance" ordinance was passed, the Dallas impound lots began to fill up and were full after only nine days. Most of the impounded cars were driven by illegals.

Not only must they provide proof of insurance to have their car released, they have to pay for the cost of the tow, a $350 fine, and $20 for every day their car is kept in the lot.

Dallas' solution  gets uninsured drivers off the road WITHOUT making them show proof of nationality. Wonder how the ACLU or the Justice Department will get around this one.

Brings a tear to my eye.

GO Texas!

Look at the other plus side to this too. When they come to get their car, a check on their ID and then proof they are who they say they are could easily be enforced, and a surcharge added for the service as well. That is of course assuming they actually come to try and reclaim that vehicle.

That is a nice strategy.

I think they should hold the vehicles for a week or so and then auction them off.

I just came back from my first trip to Dallas and I liked the city.  Several suburbs I passed through seemed like pretty nice places to live in.

I enjoyed your visit too, Dark Lord!
 
Although I was disappointed you didn't bring your light saber with you.  I imagine brandishing a bonafide light saber while wearing your black cape would attract some hot chicks!
