Edmonson County Attorney, J.B. Hines, has announced a new car insurance monitoring program. “An uninsured motorist costs other law abiding, insured drivers unnecessary costs. In an effort to combat the uninsured driver, we will request that the court require the convicted, uninsured driver to enroll in our insurance monitoring program,” said Hines.
According to a statement from Hines' office, the monitoring program will require a person convicted of failing to maintain automobile insurance to pay a monitoring fee. The convicted person will be monitored on a monthly basis over a specified period.
The statement also said that the monitoring program would begin after the offender is directed to participate by the court. The offender would receive a letter or citation control number to enroll online. After registering online and paying the assessed monitoring fee, the offender would be required to verify their insurance information and would be monitored for compliance. Upon notice to the county attorney’s office of a failure to maintain insurance, the non-compliant person would be required to show cause in court.
"This program aims to hold motorist accountable for their failure to maintain insurance," Hines said.
