No Insurance? No Problem… Walk

This week, the Lubbock City Council will debate and possibly vote on a new ordinance that would give Police the discretion to tow a vehicle if the driver doesn’t have auto insurance. Councilman Paul Beane and Councilman Jim Gilbreath are sponsors of the ordinance. This ordinance has been passed in other cities in Texas, such as Dallas and Corpus Christi, so it’s nothing new to the state.

I am just fine with this ordinance, and I hope the City Council passes it. We need irresponsible people off the road and if you don’t have auto insurance, you are being irresponsible. We’ve all heard stories of people who have been hit by someone who didn’t have insurance. These stories are normally horror stories and it’s something we need to work on.

If you can’t afford insurance on your car, I understand. Get a bicycle. Or if you don’t want to do that, you can always walk or ride Citibus. That may seem harsh, but I really don’t care. I don’t want you driving and I really don’t want you running into me. If you have insurance you don’t have to worry about this ordinance. It really won’t affect you in a bad way.

The big question is, will it pass? Beane, Gilbreath, and Mayor Tom Martin are all for it. The other members? Who knows. Stay tuned to LFN and we will keep you up to date.

What do you think? Do you like the idea of this ordinance?
