It's also a law in the State of California when stopped by a Police Officer, to show your drivers license or proper identification. CA Drivers signed the consent when they took their DMV test. I strongly agree with the check points!!! Considering the fact that many people don't have a valid drivers license or insurance and are out there driving, once again, breaking the LAW!!!
This is for OUR safety and my well being is PRICELESS!!!

I agree with you TOTALLY! If you can't follow the laws, then GET OUT and GO HOME. If America is your legal home then do as the law requires you to. Get off your LAZY ___ and do it!

And Again I say, This is simple. To operate a vehicle legally you must have a vaild drivers license (not suspended). You must have valid insurance (not pending). The vehicle must be registered (legally)and be safe to be on the road. If these conditions or requirements are not meet then the vehicle is subject to impound. I believe if any 2 of these conditions are not meet then the police officer MUST BY LAW impound the vehicle. Oh yeah, one other thing, if the driver just happens to have a warrant which I'm sure in Baldwin Park is not likely, the vehicle most likely will be impounded if there is no one responsible to release the vehicle to.

Well the democrats with the help of our great leader Obama has made this happen. The federal government is afraid of the illegals and can't control them either. I guess once we have to many here then the drug cartels will be next with their killing of people til they get what they want. This has to stop and we need politicians with balls to stop the flow and deport all these illegals back now. Please remember when you vote that the DEMOCRATS want illegals here and want them to do your jobs at a cheaper price and take the food from your tables. Please show support to only the people who will stand up and fight against illegals coming into the country. These people bring diseases,abuse the health care system,they bring crime and drugs in,and they use the welfare system. It is time to fight for our country in our on country screw all these wars we go help them people and get nothing in return. We help the Arabs and they still screw us on oil prices when will we take care of our country???????

The mayor and councilmembers are incompetent. Again they fail to protect the safety and rights of the Baldwin Park residents. In order to drive in the state of California you need a liscense, registration, and insurance. What the city is doing is promoting unliscensed drivers on our streets. Next time you get hit get ready to pay up because chances are that person won't have insurance and you can thank the mayor for that.

If your car was impounded then you were either impaired or you were not within regulation. In laymanís terms, you were drunk, drugged up or you didn't have a valid drivers license on you, you did not have valid proof of insurance or you did not have current registration. I agree that they should give you a chance to have someone else drive the car home if they can get to it within a minimal time frame but take responsibility for yourself and face the consequences of your actions. In laymanís terms, GROW UP and do what is required by law!

What this proves once again is how the immigrant population seems to be more organized and apt to stand up for something than the average American. We cant complain that our country is going to them when we don't do anything to effect change. Where are the protests against the illegals, the federal reserve, the unjust wars, bailouts, and the countless laws added to the books every month to further erode our freedoms?? I see way less than 300 people showing up to protest for these causes, yet the immigrants rally in mass over lesser issues. As long as foreign interests are the louder voice, America will continue its path towards a socialistic tyranny. Wake up and stand up!!!

Oh come on the illegals want their cars back. The city
needs to grow some balls and stand up to the community
and say no, if your car is impounded it's impounded.

Ok lets see here, they don't just pull anyone over, if your break the law while dropping your child off to school then you get pulled over, if you have no ID or CDL then your vehicle get's impounded and you get cited. And majority of the police in BP are Latino so I don't think there is any harassment going on there. You should get your
head out of your ... before you open your big mouth

In order to get pulled over the cops must have just cause ..... As long as you have a drivers license, insurance, and tags then if you get pulled over then they wont take the car unless your under the influnce of something. I have been hit more then once by unlicensed and illegal drivers ... I support the DUI checkpoints ... If you are driving illegally then your car should be impounded until proof of insurance, tags, and drivers license can be provided
