DALLAS, TX.- The Dallas Police Department will begin enforcing the Uninsured Motorist Ordinance with the start of the new year.
Approved by the Dallas City Council on May 28, the new law says that drivers who are stopped for a traffic violation and cannot provide proof of the state-required auto insurance will have their vehicle towed at the owner’s expense.
Currently, uninsured drivers in Dallas are only towed in the event of a traffic accident. The new ordinance extends towing to any traffic violations.
This new ordinance comes as a response to a large number of Dallas drivers traveling the roads without the proper insurance. The Dallas Police Department says that they issue approximately 75,000 citations every year to drivers who are uninsured.
According to the city, uninsured drivers put an unfair burden on those motorists who are properly insured.
