The Garden City Police Department will be conducting an insurance check lane from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.

The GCPD will be conducting an insurance check lane in a high-traffic area within Garden City. Officers will be stopping vehicles entering the check lane to verify insurance status, and individuals found to be in violation of the motor vehicle liability insurance ordinance will be cited.

A first offense citation for no proof of insurance carries a $300 fine and $70 in court costs.

The check lane is part of an ongoing effort by the Garden City Police Department to reduce the amount of drivers in Garden City who are driving without motor vehicle liability insurance.

So far this year, officers have issued 362 citations for no proof of insurance. In 2012, officers issued 923 citations, and in 2011, officers issued 1,202 citations for no proof of insurance.
