KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AT POLICE CHECKPOINTS

The Colectivo Todo Poder al Pueblo will begin monitoring police checkpoints to ensure that the abuses and profiteering end from tows and impounds. A recent law that passed, AB 353, guarantees new rights to individuals detained at a checkpoint that do not possess a drivers license.

If you are detained at a police checkpoint and the only offense is that you are driving without a driver’s license (Note: does not pertain to revoked or suspended licenses):

  1. The police must make a reasonable attempt to not impound your vehicle by attempting to identify the registered owner of the vehicle to release the vehicle to the registered owner if he or she is a licensed driver OR to a licensed driver authorized by the registered owner.
  2. If the registered owner or a licensed driver authorized by the registered owner cannot be identified and contacted, then the vehicle would be impounded BUT, now the 30-Day Impound does not apply if your only offense was driving without a license. The vehicle can be released upon showing proof of current California driver’s license and vehicle registration.

If you are stopped at a police checkpoint and your only offense is that you were driving without a license and your car is impounded, please contact us to document this abuse. Our campaign is to end the abuse at checkpoints! We are also organizing for a city policy to ensure the same rights mentioned above to apply at all general traffic stops.  JOIN US!
