a reply to: MrWendal Crawling under a law enforcement car is very illegal. Felony interference with an emergency vehicle and obstruction of justice, just to start. Then resisting arrest and maybe an unlawful assembly charge to boot. Luckily these cops used their heads and diffused the situation, that is a lot different than them not breaking the law.
Like I said these arrests may still come later.

First- did anyone notice, in both examples linked in this thread, that what these immigrants were pulled over for is pretty lame? Potentially bogus?
The way the DMV suspends drivers license's it should not come as a shock. I myself drive with no insurance and no license and I have for 10 years. Why? I cant get insurance cause I have no license. My license is suspended in another State for reasons they admit are a mistake, but I have to pay the fines anyway. Plus, this State wants me to take a class I have already taken and paid for a second time over, at my expense.

Improper right turn could go either way, we don't know the specifics. The license plate light being out is a big one, your plate needs to be visible at night.
This is the joke of it all, licenses get suspended but people have no other transportation to work. This forces them to drive illegally so that they can continue to be employed and pay off the fine among other things. Without the license it then prevents insurance which means someone who just wants to goto work, earn some money, and pay off the fine is suddenly put in the situation of having to break two additional laws in order to fix the situation.
License suspensions need to be very seriously considered in towns without good public transportation.
