Until our inept lawmakers enact mandatory jail time, and the permanent impoundment of their motor vehicle, the fearless drunks will continue driving. We pay high insurance costs because of this, and every driver needs to looks at just how much their policy will cover their medical treatments and hospital stay if you get hit by the uninsured driver. Given the costs the hospitals charge, it's not going to cover the costs. Ya can't sue someone who has no money. We the people need stronger laws to protect us. The present laws do not deter the drunks from driving.

Joe, what we need are workers do their jobs. I just received my license plate renewal & on the form are places to put my insurance company, policy #, expiration date. NO ONE is checking for this information & I know this for a fact. Last year, for the heck of it, I left all this info blank to see if I would get my renewal sticker & sure enough I got the sticker in the mail. I've been harping on this for years & every day in the patch you'll see individuals being arrested for not having insurance. The only answer to this is that Springfield do their jobs of upholding the law.

because, they get money for those stickers, they don't if they are rejected. But insurance is racism, same with voter id.

Joe, I just read this in the Tribune: State Farm (that's who I'm insured with for many many years & never cost them a cent) seeks to up auto rates by 2.3%. I just paid my insurance 2 weeks ago & that had an increase. My homeowners went up $85. I've had it. Time to shop around.
