One of Carey's battles

From: Carey K M.
Sent on: Thursday, May 9, 2013 11:46 PM
This is one of the battles I tried fighting.  Unfortunately this one I had to surrender because the OBMV would not respond other than with repeated form letters and license suspension was looming.  I spoke with Rep. Ron Young about this.  I was not at all happy with his response but out of respect for him and his past record I will not go  further with commenting on it.

Rep. John Becker responded with this: 
We have had some discussions about this problem. It is on the radar but I’m not sure where it’s going.

Please contact your state reps and let them know this is a concern.  IF we are trying to restore the Constitution no stone needs to be left unturned. 

O.B.M.V. or to whom it may concern,

I received a notification stating that I was randomly selected to verify that I have coverage for my 2001 Daweoo. This concerns me.

I do want to comply and follow what the notification requests but I want to make sure both myself and the OBMV is doing what is constitutionally correct. Please provided clarification as to the reasons you request such proof of insurance and by what authority to do so pursuant to the 4th Amendment of The Constitution which states:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The words that alarm me are The right of the people to be secure in their... papers... against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated ….

I recently renewed my license plates for both of my vehicles in June and I needed to show proof that I had auto insurance. I also understand that any driving infraction a police officer can demand to see a drivers license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance but the officer has probable cause to do. To be randomly selected seems to be in violation of the 4th amendment.

I have spoken with my state representative about this and will have further dialog with him concerning this issue if it is constitutionally correct.

I would like to request information on this matter, the full context of O.R.C. [masked] and additional time so all parties can review the legality of such law.

Again I want to be in compliance I just want to make sure this is constitutionally correct.

Thank You,
Carey Masci
