As reported in the Dallas Morning News, the City of Dallas has begun in earnest with the new policy of towing the vehicles of uninsured motorists. I hope the word spreads quickly and greatly reduces the number of drivers who don’t carry the mandatory auto liability coverage. This would be a great benefit to our personal injury clients, and to motorists in general. On New Year’s Day Dallas police towed 20 vehicles. It remains to be seen if that will be indicative of the pace of towing throughout the month.
If you drive in Dallas and you either haven’t bought insurance or you have let your insurance lapse, you better take care of that soon or you could be facing very expensive costs to get your car out of the city pound.
