The next day, an officer found a vehicle without insurance and issued multiple tickets and a 4-month driving prohibition to the owner.
On February 6, there was yet another case of driving without insurance, with the addition of the driver only having a learner’s license. The vehicle was towed and the man received multiple tickets.
