HOW WILL MANDATORY INSURANCE BE ENFORCED

0

Dear Source,
Yes, the way you described the insurance problem that's great. I fully
agree, everyone SHOULD have insurance.
But…here's the reality check.
Enforcement. How will they enforce it?
When someone signs up for insurance and they pay the first of a quarterly plan what happens when they let that plan lapse? Does the insurance company alert the police?
No, they don't. The recently uninsured driver drives around anyway.
That uninsured driver might hit your car and total it, then what do you get? Nothing, just like now. Compulsory insurance can be the answer but the IMPLEMENTATION is the problem here. And I'm telling you….people who don't have money won't pay for it. This island is financially strapped and so are the residents.
I think that if the government really wanted us all to be insured it would start a pay at the pump tax, which would go towards insuring all drivers (maybe privatize the insurance agency for this or go with an outside provider). Yes, I know noone has faith in the government right now, however I would have more faith in the Govt. than all the people of the V.I. paying their bills on time with this bad economy.
