Every vehicle operated on a public roadway is required to have insurance and cannot legally operate on the roadway otherwise.
There have been numerous complaints recently about drivers involved in a minor wreck who exchange information with one another only to learn that the other driver does not have insurance coverage on their vehicle.
It is also within policy of the Victoria Police Department to allow officers to tow vehicles that do not have financial coverage.
The Victoria Police Department Traffic Safety Unit invites citizens to inform us of any traffic issues that you observe. The easiest way to do this is go to our website, victoriapd.com, then go to the VPD Customer Service Request tab in the center of the page and follow the directions.
