Today, the Chicago City Council's Police and Traffic Committee approved an ordinance that would require that vehicles driven by drivers pulled over for driving on a suspended or revoked license be impounded. The procedure for dealing with impounded vehicles would be the same as for any other reason that the city impounds vehicles. This is not the first time such an ordinance was proposed. The previous proposal was defeated because the construction on the Dan Ryan Expressway was not making it possible to have enough room at the city pound for these additional impounds. The chances for passage are thought to be better this time because the Dan Ryan project has been completed and the overcrowding concerns at the city pound no longer exist. The entire City Council is expected to take up the measure very shortly. We will keep our readers informed of any developments.
