Re: Impounded Car for Expired Drivers License
Well, you posted in a forum dedicated to U.S. legal issues, so I will give you the answer of what I would do if this had happened to me...
In the U.S., California in particular, you can correct the license matter (renewing it), and once that is done , you can petition the law enforcement agency that impounded it and they may release it.
In fact we do have an actual process by which you can request an official hearing to attempt to dispute the validity of the impound... Then again, as I glance at what you posted, we would have an opportunity to submit proof of the license renewal to the court and the citation(s) would be dismissed upon payment of an administrative fee.
Sounds to me your courts are less forgiving, aye!
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
