I would not mind it at all if they sent me a questionnaire via
mail to fill out and i could check that the car is not operable.
If they did that, every uninsured smuck in Miami who gets the
"your license will be suspended unless you either get insurance,
hand in the tag or check this box" would just check the car not
operable box and we would get no where. I don't profess to have
all the answers here but i do know what doesn't work, and that's
their current system.
There are huge numbers of people driving around here with no
insurance (or extremely crappy or crooked insurance, but that's
another issue.) It would help if the cops started actually
asking for proof of insurance when they pull you over. I've been
pulled over many times and it's a rare thing for them to even ask
down here. Make the penalty for driving without insurance,
seizure of the car and i think you would have less of these
