Miami Crack Down on Uninsured Drivers

InsuranceCardPoliceSouth Florida officials are cracking down on fraudulent insurance cards after seeing an increase in the region. The problem law enforcement has is that when they make a regular traffic stop they have no way of verifying the authenticity of the card.

Fake insurance cards are sold online where anyone can doctor or by using Internet sites that sell you templates with the disclaimer that they don’t encourage illegal activity.

Because it’s so difficult to identify, agencies are teaming up with insurance companies to crack down on this crime which is a third-degree felony in Florida.
