Read the first time May 25, 1994.
TO AMEND SECTION 56-10-270, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO PENALTIES FOR OPERATING AN UNINSURED VEHICLE, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT UPON PROOF OF FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, THE PERSON'S DRIVING PRIVILEGES ARE RESTORED.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 56-10-270(c) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"(c) Any person whose license plates and registration certificates which are suspended as provided in this section, which are not suspended for any other reason, may have them immediately restored, if he files proof of financial responsibility with the department. The administrative suspension that occurs as a result of a lapse of automobile insurance coverage does not require proof of financial responsibility, as required by Section 56-9-500, or thirty day suspension if there has not been a previous violation for operation of uninsured vehicle within the past three years or if the person was not driving under suspension."
SECTION 2. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 38-77-370. No automobile insurer doing business in this State may use the fact that its insured, who was a South Carolina resident at the time the ticket was issued, paid an out-of-state motor vehicle speeding ticket, wherein no trial or other adjudicatory proceeding attended by the insured was held, as evidence of the fault of its insured, as a basis for imposing a surcharge on the insured's policy premium."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
