Is there any teeth to this new law? Will the license be taken away forever if caught driving with no insurance? Many won't get one because they will have to provide insurance.

So your raw number tidbits are a bit deceptive. Farming is almost twice as dangerous…

That's really the heart of it ... how do government officials have authority to negotiate promises (usually/often for political or monetary support in elections), that don't immediately collect the revenue to fund those promises/contracts?
