Proposed legislation will require drivers to provide proof of insurance upon licensing

Posted Tuesday, February 06, 2007 by Ed Harper

Proposed legislation will require drivers to provide proof of insurance when registering their vehicles. Washington is one of a few states that do not have this requirement. WA State legislators will likely enact bills in both houses which will mandate proof of insurance and carry with it the crime of a misdemeanor if one attempts to provide fraudulent documentation. Mandatory insurance is already the law in the State of Washington why should we threaten drivers with another crime and require the police and courts to be the state revenue collectors.
