Drivers with no license could have vehicle impound

MONTGOMERY, AL (AP) -

A proposed ordinance could allow police officers to impound a vehicle if the driver has a suspended, revoked, expired or no driver's license.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that the Montgomery City Council public safety committee voted 4-1, sending the ordinance to the full council.

If another driver in the car has a license, that person would be allowed to drive the car and it wouldn't be towed.

City Councilman Glen Pruitt says the driver or owner would have to pay a $200 administrative fee, $75 to have the vehicle towed and $25 per day fee to store the car at the impound lot if the vehicle is towed.

The owner or driver would need to show proof of a driver's license and proof of registration before paying to get the vehicle back.
