    If you don't have a license and its your car I can't think of a reason why you car shouldn't be towed.

    Nothing that is of merit and a huge impact in reality anyway. Does anybody have anything?

    Wait a minute DM. This thread is about a driver that is not licensed. It's not about uninsured drivers. Which, I might add, lack of insurance does not endanger one's life. Jogging ten miles home when you're 10 years old, on the other hand, probably does.

    Just by the way you phrase the question, and considering that there have been many reasons already stated in this thread, it's obvious that nobody has anything that you would accept as a reason.

    No, that's socialism. We're not allowed that here.

    not true at all I havent read the whole thread only some of them but the simpleton reasons like what if a person forgot their license at home are stupid and meaningless since thats not what we are talking about. We are talking about people breaking the law and driving illegally without a license.

    But by all means feel free to keep WRONGLY guessing, it makes you look very objective.

    also "my acceptance" isnt whats in question here, its what the law/society should accept vs rights vs criminality.

    I never really accepted the premise of drivers licenses so the answer is just no by default.

    well that id like to see proof of that because I seriously doubt that. I mean are there any polices officers that do not have radios to call back to a station with a computer?
    and if this is the case you would be screwed without ID anyway

    not to mention if we are going by fantasy everybody knew eachother in Mayberry so it would be ok

    Everything beyond this is moot. Read the whole thread before you start making blanket implications that there have been no valid reasons given, and creating the (most likely false) impression that you can be swayed in your opinion.

    In the US, the vehicle is insured, not the driver. Though rates are generally calculated with the driver's driving record in mind. Generally, of course, there are exceptions to the general rule.

    Going OT: Personally, I'd like to change the way we do it. I'd prefer that drivers buy their own liability insurance that would cover them regardless any vehicle they drive (as long as it is the same vehicle class that they are licensed for). Then, if the owner of the vehicle wants insurance on the vehicle, that's up to them to purchase separately.
