City of Grand Forks
[¶1] Roland Riemers appeals from a judgment of conviction entered after a jury found him guilty of driving without liability insurance in violation of Grand Forks City Ordinance 8-0205, which prohibits a person from driving a motor vehicle in Grand Forks without liability insurance and requires the person, upon request during the investigation of an accident or within twenty days of the request, to provide satisfactory evidence of a liability policy. Riemers argues the city ordinance is unconstitutional, the district court erred in not dismissing the criminal complaint for lack of service of process, a law enforcement officer had no legal authority to require Riemers to provide proof of insurance, the court erred in admitting evidence that Riemers did not have liability insurance, the court erred in instructing the jury, and the court erred in denying Riemers' motion for a directed verdict. We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3) and (4).
