Oklahoma Law Allows Seizure of License Plates

It's an effort to curb the estimated 560,000 uninsured motorists on Oklahoma roads.
MIAMI,OK-- In a few days law enforcement officers in Oklahoma will be able to seize license plates from certain drivers.

It's an effort to curb the estimated 560,000 uninsured motorists on Oklahoma roads.

Earlier this year, the legislature passed a law which gives officers the option to seize an uninsured driver's license plate rather than towing the vehicle as allowed under a 2010 amendment.

According to the law, when a citation is issued for failure to have insurance, it serves as both a temporary license plate and temporary liability insurance for ten days.

During that time, the driver must get an insurance policy and provide documentation to the county sheriff's office.

If a driver does not comply, they will face a $250 fine.
