Over the past five years, the Uninsured Vehicle Enforcement Diversion program has been using special cameras. There are 75 license plate readers set up across the state that are only looking at the back of vehicles.
If the camera notices someone driving without insurance, no matter the reason, the UVED sends a notice in the mail to offer the diversion program. The program prevents anyone from being charged and, instead, works with the individuals to help them get coverage.
Officials said this comes in handy if an accident were to ever occur.

The more people who get car insurance coverage, the lower everyone’s insurance coverage will be. However, KOCO 5 was told some people who were offered the deal aren’t holding up their end of the bargain, so starting next month, their cases will be handed over to the district attorney.
