Only because people allow this abuse from I.C., makes THEM richer, individual car insurance is supposed to be based on "no-fault coverage". The ins industry is the biggest scam going, if they pay a claim for a new fr bumper, why are they increasing your rates, thats what your paying them for! If your accident prone, the sure, 1 accident in 20 yrs and they want to jack up your rates? Should be illegal. But, they pay your legislators campaign expenses, so your/we're ******.

People prefer to demonize one another instead of standing up to these thieves, its easier.

So are you then defending illegals who drive with no license and no insurance and blame the car insurance companies instead ?

No, the insurance companies will use any excuse to refuse payment, and often do.The illegal just becomes the excuse. You pay car insurance in case something happens to your car, its between you and your insurance company.

This just calls into question the whole point of a DUI check point. Fix that and issues like this go away.

They started off as DUI checkpoints, then they turned into License checkpoints/vehicle seizure checkpoints.In most cases I think the big winner was the tow truck companies, they would give some to the cities/cops also, tens-of-millions per year if I recall.

The supreme court ruled that DUI checkpoints were only a "minor violation" of your 4th amendment rights thus they continue. That is not the point of the discussion however. The fact that ILLEGALS are even here in the first place is. Get em out and all these problems go away don't blame the dui checkpoints.

"Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck announced Monday that his officers will no longer automatically tow the cars of illegal immigrant drivers stopped at sobriety checkpoints.



The policy comes in response to the concerns of Latino civil rights activists, who say impound fees are unfairly costing otherwise hardworking illegal immigrant drivers hundreds of dollars.



Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said his department impounds about 1,000 cars a year from illegal immigrants at sobriety checkpoints – not because they’re drunk but because they don’t have driver’s licenses.
“As we reviewed our impound policies it became obvious to me that they had disparate impact on individuals based on something that was entirely out of their control," Beck said.


California doesn’t issue driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants.
Under the new policy, officers will give unlicensed illegal immigrants “reasonable time” to find someone else to drive their cars home.
“No longer will these checkpoints have an adverse impact on somebody merely because of their (immigration) status," Beck said. "The sad truth is that the people who were most impacted by this law were the people that could afford it the least.”
