If You Don’t Have a License, Who Gets the Car?

Hosted by

The City of Los Angeles impounds the cars of unlicensed drivers for up to 30 days, which costs an average of $2000.  Mayor Villaraigosa and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck want to end that practice—but the police rank and file say that would endanger public safety.  As we’ll hear, it’s all about the lives--and livelihoods--of illegal immigrants, who aren’t allowed to get licenses in the first place.
