New Law Allows Dallas Police To Tow and Impound Uninsured Cars-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Summary of eRumor:This is a forwarded email that says the city of Dallas, Texas has passed a law that allows the city to tow and impound vehicles that are pulled over for a routine traffic stop if the drivers can not provide proof of automobile insurance.
The law is real but not that new. The City of Dallas, in the Lone Star State, has been towing and impounding vehicles since January 1, 2009 according to their City Hall Web Site.
Recently, the City of Dallas, Texas, passed an ordinance stating that if a driver is pulled over by law enforcement and is not able to provide proof of insurance, the car is towed.
To retrieve the car after being impounded, they must show proof of insurance to have the car released. This has made it easy for the City of Dallas to remove uninsured cars.
Shortly after the “No Insurance” ordinance was passed, the Dallas impound lots began to fill up and were full after only nine days. 80 % + of the impounded cars were driven by illegals.
Not only must they provide proof of insurance to have their car released, they have to pay for the cost of the tow, a $350 fine, and $20 for every day their car is kept in the lot.
Accident rates have gone down 47%and… Dallas’ solution gets uninsured drivers off the road WITHOUT making them show proof of nationality.
