    Don't know if it is true but it sure sounds good to me.



    Don't Mess with Texas

    Sometimes the simplest of solutions work best......(Like burying a pig in the ground to prevent building of a mosque.)


    Recently, in the City of Dallas, Texas, they 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 away.

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

    Shortly after "No insurance" ordinance was passed, the Dallas impound
    lots began to fill up quickly and were full after nine days. 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 that have no insurance
    that might endanger your life. Brings a tear to my eye.

    Dallas' Solution Get them off the road WITHOUT making them show proof of nationality. Wonder how the ACLU or the Justice Department will get around this one. Dallas, TX's solution to Illegal's...

    That sounds like a good start, and it wouldn't be discrimination. Neil

    I hope it is true, but I doubt it. Have you been to Dallas lately? Over half the populance is probably illegal.

    I suppose you can buy a little better vehicle when your not paying taxes, insurance and social security, medical care for your family, and whatever else they can get out of paying by teaching each other how to work the system. Neil

    Not sure about Dallas, but that law was just passed in Lubbock where I live. The impact remains to be seen but it's a popular decision. Studies show that 1 in 5 drivers in Lubbock are uninsured! Impound lots should soon be full of lowriders and 70's pickup trucks. In all fairness there will be plenty of Anglo's contributing cars too.

    Hope my insurance rates go down soon.

    GREAT IDEA! This needs to spread everywhere. Real hard to claim dicrimination or profiling on this one.

    I believe most states have laws already in place, they just need to enforce them.

    This might not be to cost effective. Price of towing and storage before they never pick them up, only to have the city or township have to pay to have them removed and towed to junkyard plus all the paperwork. So towed twice and storage for these mostly $500-$l,000 cars and SUV's sounds like they would be lucky to break even. This makes no profit to the city, so they will not enforce it!!! They will just write them tickets instead!!! Break-em all. Jeff

    police impounds have a very profitable way to handle the "abandoned cars". Most go through a impound sale, and are issued a state title. It is a great system, and I am not sure with junk prices as high as they are that any towing company would argue with a great supply of junk vehicles. If no one bids on the vehicle, the towing yard is awarded title to the vehicle. Most of these vehicles get picked clean while in the yard anyway, so no one is out any money...except the car owner. If they are driving without insurance, they deserve to loose their car stereo!
