Crackdown Could be Ahead for Montgomery Drivers
Drivers beware a new crackdown could be driving in your direction. An ordinance is in the works that could have your car towed if you are a certain type of traffic violator.
If passed, this new ordinance is going to take things a step further. If you don't have your drivers license or insurance card before you get behind the wheel of a car, instead of getting a citation, your car would be towed.
To legally get behind the wheel of a car, you need insurance and a valid drivers license. If you think all drivers are obeying those laws, you're wrong.
"Yes, but I also have insurance. Yes, I am one of those people," said Fredrick Williams, who is driving with a suspended license.
You can be ticketed and towed, but only if you are caught driving on a suspended license because of DUI or because your license had been revoked.
The problem is, Pruitt says, many of those drivers are getting into accidents.
The ordinance is still in the early stages. Pruitt says they are hoping to have a draft of it in the next couple of months.
If it passes, Montgomery would be the first city in the state to begin a towing program like this.
