LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – If you don't have insurance, the city of Lufkin can take your car.

Tuesday, city council voted to make this a reality, approving the second reading of an ordinance that would allow the cars of uninsured drivers, to be towed away.

While it takes effect immediately, council members say it will not be enforced by law enforcement until September 1st.

Until then, a public relations program will help educate the public about the law.
