I do not argue that it is not a racket, it is simply not the cops who put this racket into operation. Your elected officials did.
I have no problem with a surcharge to cover the cost of the court, I do have a problem with 3 years of it. I simply do not know what it cost to run a court for a day, but what ever the cost of that is, divided by the time that going to court and showing that you did indeed have insurance, is all the person should have to pay, because if they observed the law and had that proof on them, the whole thing could have been avoided.

WTF? I've gotten the no proof of insurance ticket before for not having my card on me and it was nothing more than the $10 fine (no other citations issued), but this was also a couple of years ago.

I thought that's what my $10 "administrative fee" was that I get charged to drop the citation once I provide proof.

I would go so far as to say that ALL traffic violation fines are a racket.
They are there to produce revenue. If it were really about traffic safety, when folks violated the law, they would impound their vehicle and take their license, end of problem.

Yes, I've done the "pay your $10 at court once providing you had insurance AT THE TIME OF CITATION" and been on my way. A couple times. Guess they are trying to stop that.

That's what I thought. If you don't have your insurance card then you might as well not even have insurance. That can't be right.

No need. I had this happen to me a few years ago. Called them up, faxed my stuff to them, and they fixed it.

They can't site you for no insurance unless,
A. Your insurance information does not come up in the state data base at the EXACT MOMENT of the stop, in which case you WILL be sited must show proof to the court. If your proof does not show coverage at the time of the stop you be convicted and its surcharge city.
B. You provide a fraudulent insurance card that does not reflect an active policy in the state data base, see point A
C. You provides a valid insurance card that does not reflect an active policy in the stae data base, but you later prove to the court that it was active at the time of the stop, the case would be dismissed with no conviction and no surcharge.

The last time I was stopped I didn't have it on me and they pulled me up in the data base. Told me to slow it down and sent me on my way.

Another reason why texas sucks more every day. It is becoming more like the same bureaucracy that many texans often mock wash dc for being.
