Dallas Texas Towing Uninsured Motorist Dallas, TX’s solution to Illegals… Brilliant!!!
passed an ordinance that if you are pulled over by law enforcement
and not able to provide proof of insurance, your car will be towed
right on the spot and issued a receipt for the vehicle.
after being impounded, you must present the receipt, show proof of
insurance and a drivers license or other ID to have your car
released. This has made it easy for the City of Dallas to remove
uninsured cars that are typically driven by illegals.
Shortly after “No Insurance” ordinance was passed, the Dallas
impound lots began to fill up quickly and were full after nine days.
Turns out that most of the impounded cars were driven by illegals.
Not only must you provide proof of insurance to have your car
released, you have to pay for the cost of the tow, a $350 fine, and
charged $20 for every day their car is kept in the lot.
I would suggest other cities across the nation to follow what
Dallas, Texas is doing. Not only is it getting uninsured drivers off
the road, but it is taking away vehicles driven by illegals who have
no insurance that might endanger your life.
road WITHOUT making them show proof of nationality or violating their
rights or ‘profiling’. Wonder how the ACLU or the Justice Department
will get around this one.
Towing Ordinance – Towing Uninsured Motorist
Beginning January 1, 2009 the Dallas Police Department will begin
enforcing the Uninsured Motorist Ordinance, approved by the Dallas
City Council on May 28, 2008. Under this ordinance drivers stopped for
a traffic violation who cannot show proof of auto insurance meeting
state requirements will be issued a citation and will have his or her
vehicle towed at the owner’s expense. The City already tows the
vehicles of uninsured motorists involved in traffic accidents.
The new ordinance is in response to the large number of people
driving in the City of Dallas without the proper state required auto
insurance. These uninsured drivers place an unfair burden on those who
comply with state law and maintain auto insurance. The Dallas Police
Department currently issues about 75,000 citations a year to motorists
with no auto insurance. With the new ordinance, the city anticipates
fewer of these citations as more drivers comply with the law to avoid
having their vehicles towed.
To find out more about the Uninsured Motorist Ordinance that amended Section 28-4 of the Dallas City Code, please review the ordinance.
If you have any questions about this policy please call 311 (the
City of Dallas’ Customer Service Helpline) or 214-670-5111 when
calling outside the City of Dallas.
Comply with state law: contact an automobile insurance provider and obtain auto insurance. It’s the law.
