Every January Billings goes around and rounds up people with late fines. I would think that anyone who has to immediately pay a 300$ late fine would probably go delinquent on their rent. (Why not give them community service). I don't know if DUI costs or mandatory auto insurance costs would be enough to force an indigent to go delinquent on their rent. DUI costs and mandatory auto insurance costs (in several surveys) are causing an increase in food stamp numbers. A 1996 food stamp survey done in Billings Montana showed 18 of the 96 applicants said they wanted food stamps due to fines, DUI costs, or mandatory auto insurance. That equals 70,000 over the last 30 years. A study done by Dr Maril for the insurance people showed 40 per cent said they could not buy food or pay rent due to mandatory auto insurance, so maybe I am wrong and auto insurance might be causing an increase in no money for rent.
I see Utah is now towing vehicles for no insurance (those vehicles which are towed by mistake, that do have insurance, will be reimbursed). There are low income households making 6,000$ a year that have an 8,000$ auto insurance bill (three teens). I think the proponents should draft a bill requiring tazing and waterboarding of uninsured drivers, to try and get that household with a 6,000$ income to buy 8,000$ of insurance. I think they would have more luck tazing and waterboarding a turnip to get blood, or taz and waterboard a pig to get pigs to fly. I guess if you taze a pig, he will "fly around", but I don't think that counts.
