LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Los Angeles city councilman wants to put the brakes on impounding vehicles of unlicensed immigrants until a new law allowing them to get driver’s licenses goes into effect.

“There’s no need to continue to apply laws that weren’t even designed for immigrant motorists. The 30-day impound was designed for drunken motorists,” said Councilman Gil Cedillo.

Cedillo noted that City Attorney Mike Feuer will appeal a judge’s recent ruling that struck down the Los Angeles Police Department’s impound policy, which allowed a 30-day hold on vehicles if the driver was unlicensed and uninsured.

Cedillo said Gov. Jerry Brown’s signing of AB 60 on Thursday, which will allow nearly 2 million undocumented workers in California to obtain licenses, will change the dynamic of the state.
