Oklahoma is cracking down on uninsured drivers by testing a new method in Tulsa.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office set up an insurance checkpoint in west Tulsa overnight Saturday.

Deputies were there until 3 a.m. making sure drivers had proof of insurance.

Violators received $250 ticket, and those with zero insurance had their cars towed.

The Oklahoma Insurance Commission said one in four Oklahoma drivers doesn't have insurance, which drives up rates for everyone else.

A Racket

Plain and simple.

Wish I'd thought of it.

Remember, COPS work for Insurance Companies.

Insurance companies, not people, pushed insurance on all drivers.

More money for Insurance Companies, and now the Police have a money making racket out of it too.

These two FASCIST groups (police and insurance firms) work to the detriment of the people.


It would be cheaper for those with new cars to protect to just buy uninsured motorist coverage and leave the cops out of it.


I can see

Innoculation check points happening. Ie. Show medical records
