OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Uninsured drivers are the target of a pair of bills moving through the Oklahoma Legislature.

The Senate has approved a measure that would require drivers to post an insurance verification decal on their license tags.

The decal would indicate the dates of coverage.

The decals would allow officers to know whether a person has insurance before a traffic stop is made.

Another bill would establish a Web site that would allow law enforcement officers immediately to determine whether drivers have insurance.
