Kentucky DMV sends out notices to uninsured drivers

Posted On Mon, July 30, 2012

The vast majority of states in the U.S. force drivers to obtain some form of auto insurance in order to operate a motor vehicle. However, despite the provisions, there are still a fair number of drivers that fail to comply.

In an effort to combat this issue, the Kentucky Department of Vehicle Registration sent out letters to drivers telling hem that their automobiles lacked necessary coverage. In a statement on the matter, the state said the Uninsured Notice letters were sent to appropriate parties in all 120 counties.

"An owner of a motor vehicle registered in this Commonwealth who ceases to maintain security as required by the provisions on security may not operate or permit operation of the vehicle in this Commonwealth until security has again been provided as required by this subtitle. An owner who fails to maintain security as required by this subtitle shall have his or her motor vehicle registration revoked in accordance with KRS 186A.040," the DMV stated.

Some local officials have said that the action, which officially began in mid June, was a good program because it meant that more people were aware of issues. In an interview with WPSD-TV, Ballard County Clerk Lynn Lane said that she thought "it was working." Those who don't have insurance will be able to obtain auto insurance quotes by doing a simple search online.
