Insurance required -- Minimum coverage Universal Citation: AR Code § 27-22-104 (2016) (a) (1) It is unlawful for a person to operate a motor vehicle within this state unless the motor vehicle and the person's operation of the motor vehicle are each covered by: (A) A certificate of self-insurance under § 27-19-107; or (B) An insurance policy issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in this state. (2) (A) Failure to present proof of insurance coverage at the time of a traffic stop or arrest or a failure of the Vehicle Insurance Database or proof of an insurance card issued under § 23-89-213 to show current insurance coverage at the time of the traffic stop creates a rebuttable presumption that the motor vehicle or the person's operation of the motor vehicle is uninsured. (B) (i) (a) A proof-of-insurance card or any temporary proof of insurance issued by the insurance company that meets the requirements of § 23-89-213 may be presented in either paper form or electronic form. (b) As used in subsection (a)(2)(B)(i)(a) of this section, "electronic form" means the display of electronic images on a cellular phone or any other type of portable electronic device if the device has sufficient functionality and display capability to enable the user to display the information required under § 23-89-213 as clearly as a paper proof-of-insurance card or other paper temporary proof of insurance issued by the insurance company. (ii) The presentment of proof of insurance in electronic form does not: (a) Authorize a search of any other content of an electronic device without a search warrant or probable cause; or (b) Expand or restrict the authority of a law enforcement officer to conduct a search or investigation. (b) The policy shall provide at a minimum the following coverage: (1) Not less than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) for bodily injury or death of one (1) person in any one (1) accident; (2) Not less than fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) for bodily injury or death of two (2) or more persons in any one (1) accident; and (3) If the accident results in damage to or destruction of property, not less than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) for the damage to or destruction of property of others in any one (1) accident.

(2) A government-owned and government-operated storage facility for motor vehicles may refuse to release an operating motor vehicle from the storage facility if the owner of the motor vehicle cannot establish that the motor vehicle is covered by insurance as required under this section. (3) The following are exempt from the requirements of this subsection: (A) A motor vehicle that is considered salvage; (B) A motor vehicle when an insurer holds the title to the motor vehicle; and (C) A motor vehicle that is not driven out of the government-owned and government-operated storage facility under its own power. https://law.justia.com/codes/arkansas/2016/title-27/subtitle-2/chapter-22/section-27-22-104/


We are experiencing landline issues. Calls should be answer via cell phone.

To whom ever left this case of water thank you very much.

We would like to say congrats to the Gosnell HS Class 2018. I have had the pleasure of knowing most of you since the 7th Grade and you will be missed. I speak on behalf of the GPD officers and we wish you continued success and happiness.



Happy Birthday to 601 and upcoming 604!

Road construction continues in front of school. Please be careful.

Road construction in front of the school will continue tomorrow. Expect delays. Thank you for your patience.

The Arkansas Highway Department is going to be doing road work on Airbase Hwy starting at Bevill Ave and going 2.8 miles North. There will most likely be heavy equipment in the area, traffic flow will be affected during school hours. Be mindful of workers and pay close attention to directions to avoid any issues and obey ALL traffic laws. Please avoid area if all possible.


No reports of damage occurring in Gosnell. Department received report of a tornado on ground between us and Hornersville, Mo. Be safe and monitor weather conditions, especially this time of year.
