Penalize drivers who aren't insured

Published: January 23, 2013

In response to Jack Dill (Your Views, Jan. 18): I also believe Oklahoma's vehicle insurance laws should be tightened. The luxury of being able to drive a vehicle on state-owned roads and highways is a privilege, not a right. A collision involving two parties who both have vehicle insurance isn't cheap when you factor in rental cars, time off work and possibly having to buy a new car due to the damaged vehicle being totaled. To be involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist makes things even more costly.

Let's make it mandatory for vehicles with no proof of insurance to be towed. I'm sure that after a driver pays to get a vehicle out of tow a couple times, he may feel that it would be worth looking into getting insurance.
