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.
