I would guess that this is perhaps less expensive than jailing the individual, and does not increase the prison population. Perhaps the state can issue a year long bus pass as a suggestion as to how the individual should transport themselves. (the cost of the pass of course coming out of the revenue of the sale of the vehicle).

    With the state no longer impounding vehicles due to driving unlicensed or on a suspended license, auctioning off a motorist's vehicle is generally out of the question.

    Then simply telling someone they can no longer drive is something of an empty threat. "You can no longer drive... but here are the keys to your car." Right way the problem is, "gee how do I get the car home if I can't drive..." thus encouraging law breaking right away.

    Describes exactly what is going on currently in my locale, and don't think that locale law enforcement isn't frustrated either.

    Yea that at least is something they could change. No release of a vehicle unless there is a licensed driver there to drive it.

    It would not stop everyone by any means, but even a weak message in the right direction is better than a message in the wrong direction.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.
