Woodland Hills personal injury attorney and Uninsured/Underinsured motorist expert Barry P. Goldberg contends that regardless of whether one sides with various liberal immigration policies or stricter (yet seldom enforced) guidelines, it is now inescapable that illegal immigration is a major public safety concern on our roadways. It is estimated that there are over 2,000,000 illegal, unlicensed and uninsured drivers in California and they are causing a disproportionate amount of damage.
The problem stated simply is that illegal immigrants cannot obtain a California Driver's license. Without a license, they cannot be insured. Law enforcement and the Department of Motor Vehicles has stopped vigorously enforcing existing laws to keep unlicensed and uninsured drivers off the roads. There is no check to see whether these drivers can see, read a road sign or are even minimally capable of operating a vehicle. It is not surprising that these drivers are causing a hugely disproportionate amount of damage and death in California.
The author suggests that the installation and enforced utilization of Driving Privilege Cards and Provisional Licenses along with buying plenty of Uninsured Motorist Coverage are the only logical method of improving public safety.
