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

    Driving is a privelege, not a right. Unlicensed drivers have no business being on the road. They are unlicensed for a reason. Either they are too young to apply for a valid DL, they are too stupid to pass the tests for a valid DL, or their license has been suspended for cause. Whatever the reason, they are a danger to other drivers on the road.

    Yes, the vehicle should be towed, and the unlicensed driver should be immediately cited.

    vehicles driven by an unlicensed driver - and those driven by someone under the influence - should be held as evidence
    once the trial is concluded and the driver is found to have prevailed, then they get their vehicle back
    if they are found guilty, they get their car back after paying whatever fine is imposed
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    This is how it is often done, but the states that I am familiar with leave towing up to the discretion of the officer. So, if you get a prick...

    The fines would exceed the value of many of the vehicles on the road today.

    Is there a way a vehicle owner can "quit claim" a vehicle title and just let them keep it?

    not a problem
    but they would have to acquire another vehicle to be able to drive again

    no
    the authorities would have to sell the vehicle at public auction
    proceeds remaining - if any - after cost of the sale and the payment of outstanding obligations would be returned to the former owner of the now sold vehicle

    Right. They're charged with driving without a license... and the evidence has to be that single specific vehicle. Not just that they were driving A vehicle... it has to be that one.

    They then take the jury and/or judge out to the parking lot to see said specific vehicle, and they see... a vehicle. Unless, I guess, they can show a CSI-like fingerprint study on the steering wheel, I guess. That'll make a difference.
