    By allowing an unlicensed driver to drive his car, the owner is aiding or abetting the offence. Don't lend your car to people not licensed or insured to drive it, and you won't have it towed.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    and if the vehicle was being driven by someone without the owner's permission, then it would be stolen
    the owner would want the police to secure it

    Ok so before sending your 16 year old son out to pick up stuff from the store you should take him to the DMV and request a current driving abstract?

    a better approach would be to make sure he had both a valid drivers license and the ability to drive the vehicle properly

    My point was that teenagers often try to hide the fact that they have gotten in trouble from their parents. Here in Illinois, I believe 3 moving violations in a 12 month period can result in a suspension of a driver's license and only the driver gets notified... NOT their parents. Further I can envision a situation where a teenager in this situation may risk driving as opposed to admitting to their parents that their license is in fact suspended. THUS, the only absolute way a parent (or anyone for that matter) can actually KNOW unequivocally that someone is legal to drive is by obtaining a current abstract from the DMV. Sure... its definitely possible to do this each and every time you want to allow someone to borrow your car.... just unreasonable.

    As far as "illegals" are concerned, its way past high time that the law makers did something here.
    I know it is harsh but we have to set limits. If an illegal is identified during a routine legal matter, such as driving without a license, we should put him/her into the deportation process immediately.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    This... regarding illegal immigrants... I agree with completely.

    Not intending to go off-topic, but the notion of "sanctuary cities" where police, will not or cannot enforce immigration status, should be federally outlawed.

The car gets towed, and whoever owns the car will have to come to the impound lot to pick it up, and pay the fees. Easy peasy.

    I don't see why so many people have their shorts in a bunch over this. It's a road safety issue. No license, no drivey, no exceptions.
    What happens to the passengers in the vehicle, easy peasy?

    If there is a safety issue (driver was pulled over on an interstate highway or other highway outside of town, with no way for the driver and passengers to seek shelter and/or contact someone to pick them up, pulled over late at night, etc.) I would allow another licensed driver in the vehicle to drive the car after citing the offending driver.
    You'd make a good cop.
