House Votes To Strengthen Mandatory Insurance Requirement
(2008-03-11)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama House passed a bill Tuesday that will make it harder for Alabama vehicle owners to get around the state law that requires them to have insurance.

The bill requires vehicle owners to prove they have insurance when they buy tags for their vehicles. The measure also requires insurance companies to supply information to a database that will allow license clerks and law enforcement officers to determine whether a vehicle is insured.

The sponsor, Rep. Mike Hubbard, R-Auburn, says vehicle owners get around the current law by purchasing insurance to get a proof-of-insurance card, but then cancel their policies.
