They will have the same success rate as they do stopping red light runners, which is basically zero.

Not sure exactly what the law is in FL, but if one leaves the scene of an accident - that should be automatic license suspension - for LIFE. Period. I'll be interested to see when the suspects names come out.

They'd get a lot of the bad drivers off the road if they'd just impound cars that are unregistered/uninsured.

Good point, but wouldn't they still find away to get back on the streets and driving again?

Two deaths due to hit-and-runs in the same area on the same night?

That's ridiculous. Little Kissimmee ... hit-and-runs, gangs, home invasions... I remember when it was just a little rural town with nothing.

This why I live in Orlando in Orange County. I htink the crime per capita is worse in Osceola then it is in Orange County. Osceola has a lot of low paid theme park employees, along with a lot of people who are just ignorant and like it that way.

In Orange COunty the median family income was about $47,000 in the year 2000
Orange County, Florida - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Osceola County the median family income was $42,000.
Orange County, Florida - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maybe thats not much of a difference but I think you see what I'm getting at. Orange County has moer wealth then Osceola does, Always will in my opinion too.

Yet another ignorant Orlando resident, check your facts before you continue your useless drivel. The crime index is HALF of Orlando's and we have more white residents than hispanics unlike Orlando. I'm betting Kissimmee has more wealth too than you superior house poor, fake Orlando residents with overpriced cookie cutter shacks.

Yes, Kissimmee has multimillion $$ homes too, but we'll let you clueless Orlandoans keep pretending you're better with your overpriced firestations that you'll never step foot into LOL!!

If they can't afford to register and insure the car, they're not going to be able to afford to pay the towing and impound fee (plus fines, plus get registration and insurance) to get the car back out of the lot.

I also think we need to change some of the immmigration laws. Right now if LEO picks up a suspected undoc, INS only has 24 hours to come get them or they need to cut them loose.

Some Cities on the West coast have random dui/seat belt checks and when they find Illegals driving they impound the car. Only a licensed driver can come get it but they still have to pay all the fees.
