Uninsured Vehicle

When a driver is found not to have proof of insurance at a routine traffic stop he or she is issued a simple citation. The offense is considered more serious if the vehicle has been involved in an accident, however. In that case the license plate is confiscated. A two-part sticker is filled out by the investigating officer and part of the sticker is affixed to the confiscated license which is turned in to the MVD.  The other half is given to the driver to use as a 30-day temporary operation permit.  Two different varieties of these stickers, both from 1989, are shown below.  It is not known whether this procedure—and these stickers—are still in use today.  See also Canceled Plates.
