    Question is for anybody, not just conservativeguy.
    Either you have a license or you don't.

    Since when is factual guilt/innocence important (in our justice system)? Somebody might beat the charge for any number of reasons.

    Going a little OT here: How about people who do have a valid license, but just don't have it on their person at the moment?

    A license is required to legally drive. You are stopped while driving, and don't have one. How do you "beat the charge?"
    Don't work out, work in.

    I do not know about your state but in my state when the police pull you over they run checks on you. I think that you may even have a certain number of days to show up to city hall with your valid driver's license if you have a out of state license.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Should unlicensed drivers have their vehicles towed when pulled over for an offen

    So a passenger, that's a licensed driver, has to find another way home as a punishment for not questioning the legality of the driver before getting into the vehicle?
    I'd better start carding everyone who gives me a ride.

    Everyone knows that a man with his family isn't going to get his vehicle towed if his wife has a license. Many times friends will be allowed to drive the car. It's not like the Cops are going to give anyone a ride home. They just get pushed to have as many vehicles towed as they can by the City Councilman who's relative owns the impound lot.

    There was one Hell of an impound lot scam here in Dallas a few years ago. Towing a car that isn't disabled is stupid. It's car jail, and it's stupid.
