    If this bill is to help cover the costs of uninsured motorists, add more teeth to the bill. Make it impossible to renew your car license plates if you don’t have insurance. I’m sure that it would cut my car insurance bill down. If the government can force mandatory health ins, then why not auto ins.

    Here we go again. The people elected to represent us taking care of their special interest at our expense. Put this increase along with the proposed gasoline tax increase and the people on fixed incomes suffer but these people don’t give a damn. Is this to cover the uninsured drver’s I bet it is. If they are a problem, arrest them and get them off the roads. They are driving illegally anyway.
