Appalling no ID required for tabs

Isn’t it appalling that … Washington state does not make you show proof of insurance when you purchase license tabs? Even the state of Wyoming does that. If you can’t show proof of insurance, you can’t purchase license tabs. But here in Washington you can drive a car you shouldn’t be driving in the first place and possibly even hit someone who has to have insurance to cover you in the event that happens … appalling!

What’s up with this craziness, Washington? Is it that our state is so desperate for money that we would rather have the small amount that is collected for vehicle licensing rather than help people become responsible citizens and purchase automobile insurance in protection of all our state’s citizens?
