B. 
Financial Responsibility Required. No person shall operate a motor vehicle registered in this State, whether owned by such operator or by another person, upon the streets, alleys or highways of the City, unless such operator or the owner of the vehicle maintains financial responsibility which covers the operation of that motor vehicle by such operator.
C. 
Display Proof Of Financial Responsibility Upon Demand. No person shall operate a motor vehicle registered in this State, whether owned by such operator or by another person, upon the streets, alleys or highways of the City, unless such operator exhibits or displays proof of financial responsibility upon demand of a Police Officer, which proof covers the operation of that motor vehicle by such operator. Proof of financial responsibility may be shown by any of the following:
1. 
An insurance identification card issued by a motor vehicle insurer or by the Director of Revenue of the State of Missouri for self-insurance, as provided by Section 303.024, RSMo. A motor vehicle insurance policy, a motor vehicle liability insurance binder or receipt which contains the name and address of the insurer, the name and address of the named insured, the policy number, the effective dates of the policy and a description by year and make of the vehicle, or at least five (5) digits of the vehicle identification number or the word "fleet" if the insurance policy covers five (5) or more motor vehicles, shall be satisfactory evidence of insurance in lieu of an insurance identification card.
2. 
A certificate of the State Treasurer of Missouri of a cash deposit as provided by Section 303.240, RSMo.
3. 
A surety bond filed with the Director of Revenue of the State of Missouri as provided by Section 303.230, RSMo.
Proof of financial responsibility shall be carried at all times in the insured motor vehicle or by the operator of the motor vehicle if the proof of financial responsibility is effective as to the operator rather than to the motor vehicle. The operator of the motor vehicle shall exhibit the proof of financial responsibility immediately upon the demand of any Police Officer who lawfully stops such operator while that officer is engaged in the performance of his/her official duties.
D. 
Prima Facie Evidence — Affirmative Defense — Mitigating Circumstances. The failure of any person who operates a motor vehicle on the streets, alleys or highways of this City to display and exhibit proof of financial responsibility on the demand of any Police Officer who lawfully stops such person shall be prima facie evidence that such person, or that the owner of the vehicle, does not maintain financial responsibility as required by Subsection (B) of this Section. It shall be an absolute affirmative defense to a violation charged under Subsection (B) of this Subsection that the operator of a motor vehicle, or the owner of the motor vehicle, did maintain financial responsibility which covered operation of the vehicle by such operator on the date of the violation, but such fact shall not constitute an absolute affirmative defense to a violation charged under Subsection (C) of this Section for failure to exhibit and display proof of financial responsibility upon the demand of a Police Officer. In the event an operator charged with the violation of Subsection (B) of this Section shall, prior to a trial or guilty plea, obtain and maintain financial responsibility which covers operation of motor vehicles by such operator, then such facts may be considered by a court as a mitigating circumstance to lessen the fine or other punishment to be imposed for said violation.
E.
