Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
Any car stopped by law enforcement should have the vehicle impounded if the driver does not have a legal driver’s license. That would take one bad driver off the road at least for awhile.
By giving the illegals a pass this new law also gives a pass to others that do not have a license.
I don’t see a problem with the old law of impounding. And if illegals have a complaint with it that should not be a concern. They are breaking the law by being here so why is Sacramento changing our laws to protect them?
This new law just encourages a lot of careless drivers with no license or insurance to use our highways, knowing there is no punishment, and the responsible drivers that follow the rules become their victims.
A very high percentage of accidents are caused by unlicensed drivers and they are not all illegals.
