According T.N. Prakash, a bureau chief with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Ziesmer was asked if he had any previous sex offenses as part of the process of getting identification.Apparently, he said no.But why ask?Why can't DMV do a simple background check?It takes only 60 seconds and a computer to discover his scary past.But Prakash says to do a background check for every applicant would be too time consuming.

T.N. Prakash, the director of the Bureau of Financial Responsibility for the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, said the number of uninsured motorists in Florida is at an all-time low.In 1997, the number of uninsured drivers was 18.4 percent, Prakash said.Currently, it is 4 percent.But there are 11.5 million drivers on Florida roads and highways, Prakash said.That means there's about 460,000 uninsured motorists behind the wheel."Are there uninsured drivers out there?"Prakash said."Yes, there are.Are they contributing damage?Yes, they are.We have to keep fighting the damn thing."There are loopholes that allow uninsured drivers to get away financially unscathed, Prakash said.A citation of driving without insurance can lead to a suspended license.The violator has 30 days until their license is suspended.Throughout this period Prakash's department can't take action because of due process."During that time, they can wait 29 days then buy insurance," basically getting the violator off the hook, Prakash said.Insurers also have 45 days to report the cancellation of an insurance policy to Prakash's department. About 1.3 million transactions a month, usually citizens who are changing insurance companies, go through the Department of Financial Responsibility.The loopholes and the high volume of transactions have been tightened up considerably since 1997, Prakash said.Names and insurance policies are now listed in state databases.Forget the loopholes that give violators a window between 30-45 days, Prakash said.The median number of days the department can pinpoint a violator is now seven."We're catching people before anything can happen," Prakash said.
