A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who violates this section within ten years
of the first of two prior convictions under this section, section 169.791, or a statute or
ordinance in conformity with one of those sections. The operator of a vehicle who violates
subdivision 3 and who causes or contributes to causing a vehicle accident that results in
the death of any person or in substantial bodily harm to any person, as defined in section
609.02, subdivision 7a, is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. The same prosecuting authority
who is responsible for prosecuting misdemeanor violations of this section is responsible
for prosecuting gross misdemeanor violations of this section. In addition to any sentence
of imprisonment that the court may impose on a person convicted of violating this section,
the court shall impose a fine of not less than $200 nor more than the maximum amount
authorized by law. The court may allow community service in lieu of any fine imposed if
the defendant is indigent.

new text begin (b) A driver who is the owner of the vehicle may, no later than the date and time
specified in the citation for the driver's first court appearance, produce proof of insurance
stating that security had been provided for the vehicle that was being operated at the time
of demand to the court administrator. The required proof of insurance may be sent by mail
by the driver as long as it is received no later than the date and time specified in the
citation for the driver's first court appearance. If a citation is issued, no person shall be
convicted of violating this section if the court administrator receives the required proof of
insurance no later than the date and time specified in the citation for the driver's first court
appearance. If the charge is made other than by citation, no person shall be convicted of
violating this section if the person presents the required proof of insurance at the person's
first court appearance after the charge is made.

new text begin (c) If the driver is not the owner of the vehicle, the driver shall, no later than the
date and time specified in the citation for the driver's first court appearance, provide the
district court administrator with proof of insurance or the name and address of the owner.
Upon receipt of the name and address of the owner, the district court administrator shall
communicate the information to the law enforcement agency.

new text begin (d) If the driver is not the owner of the vehicle, the officer may send or provide a
notice to the owner of the vehicle requiring the owner to produce proof of insurance for
the vehicle that was being operated at the time of the demand. Notice by mail is presumed
to be received five days after mailing and shall be sent to the owner's current address or the
address listed on the owner's driver's license. Within ten days after receipt of the notice,
the owner shall produce the required proof of insurance to the place stated in the notice
received by the owner. The required proof of insurance may be sent by mail by the owner
as long as it is received within ten days. Any owner who fails to produce proof of insurance
within ten days of an officer's request under this subdivision is guilty of a misdemeanor.
The peace officer may mail the citation to the owner's current address or address stated
on the owner's driver's license. It is an affirmative defense to a charge against the owner
that the driver used the owner's vehicle without consent, if insurance would not have been
required in the absence of the unauthorized use by the driver. It is not a defense that a
person failed to notify the Department of Public Safety of a change of name or address as
required under section 171.11. The citation may be sent after the ten-day period.

Subd. 6.

Surcharges on criminal and traffic offenders.

(a) Except as provided
in this paragraph, the court shall impose and the court administrator shall collect a $75
surcharge on every person convicted of any felony, gross misdemeanor, misdemeanor, or
petty misdemeanor offense, other than a violation of a law or ordinance relating to vehicle
parking, for which there shall be a $12 surcharge. When a defendant is convicted of more
than one offense in a case, the surcharge shall be imposed only once in that case. In the
Second Judicial District, the court shall impose, and the court administrator shall collect,
an additional $1 surcharge on every person convicted of any felony, gross misdemeanor,
misdemeanor, or petty misdemeanor offense, including a violation of a law or ordinance
relating to vehicle parking, if the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners authorizes the
$1 surcharge. The surcharge shall be imposed whether or not the person is sentenced to
imprisonment or the sentence is stayed. The surcharge shall not be imposed when a person
is convicted of a petty misdemeanor for which no fine is imposed.

(b) If the court fails to impose a surcharge as required by this subdivision, the court
administrator shall show the imposition of the surcharge, collect the surcharge, and
correct the record.

(c) The court may not waive payment of the surcharge required under this
subdivision. Upon a showing of indigency or undue hardship upon the convicted person
or the convicted person's immediate family, the sentencing court may authorize payment
of the surcharge in installments.

(d) The court administrator or other entity collecting a surcharge shall forward it to
the commissioner of management and budget.

(e) If the convicted person is sentenced to imprisonment and has not paid the
surcharge before the term of imprisonment begins, the chief executive officer of the
correctional facility in which the convicted person is incarcerated shall collect the
surcharge from any earnings the inmate accrues from work performed in the facility
