Oklahoma Governor Signs Uninsured Motorist Bill By SEO Admin on May 08, 2013

Insurance Journal-May 2, 2013-According to the article starting November 1, law enforcement officers will be able to remove the tags of uninsured vehicles in Oklahoma. House Bill 1792, proposed by Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak and recently signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin, will also provide temporary liability insurance for the uninsured vehicle for ten days.

The bill seeks to lower the number of uninsured motorists in Oklahoma over the long-term while providing minimum liability insurance in the short-term at no cost to the state.

Law enforcement officers will be allowed to remove the tag from the uninsured vehicle and replace it with a temporary sticker, insuring the driver for a period of up to ten days. Once the offender pays the required fees and fines and purchases insurance, his or her tag will be returned.

The new law was modeled after a similar law in Louisiana. The uninsured motorist rate in Louisiana dropped from 30 percent to 12-13 percent upon implementation of the law.
