When a judge suspends your driver's license and tells you not to drive until you get it back, you should probably obey.

That's the lesson four Lodi motorists learned Wednesday morning when they found themselves calling for rides and watching as tow trucks hauled their vehicles away. Minutes after resolving their court matter, they were holding new citations for driving without a valid license because undercover officers had watched them drive away from court.

    Lodijoe-Either way, in MY case I've had no tags, no insurance, a DL all at various times. Yes I know not the smartest but when it's rent or car insurance, rent wins. And no, the old "you should choose not to drive then" doesn't work either because you have to get to work so you can at least pay half you're bills! (I'm not contending you said this)There are situations that folks get into that are simply unavoidable. It is what it is. You bring home X and your bills are Y and something gotta give. So you do like I did and get lucky. These folks in this story didn't get lucky.

    hasn't anyone seen those signs advertising for insurance that say "no license, no problem"?? One day I am going to call and find out who those insurance carriers are...Max- you are probably grateful your wife survived and are willing to leave it like that... but I wish you and your wife would ask the state to make it mandatory that all vehicles must pass a safety inspection at every renewal. She was hit by one junker that should not have been on the road. I have lived in states that had this requirement; a colored coded inspection sticker is on the inside of the windshield...it serves as another visual flag to law enforcement when a car is not in compliance with the laws. Your wife's experience makes a compelling story that legislators might listen to..

    LodiBill, I wrote that they will suspend your driver's license and that is incorrect. What they do is suspend your VEHICLE registration until you show proof of insurance. They should require a valid driver's license to register a motor vehicle or have special circumstances (i.e. invalid and someone else will be driving, etc) why you need a motor vehicle registered in your name with NO driver's license.

    Yes, you can receive a ticket for having a for sell sign on your car if it in not parked in front of your home (the registered address of the car). There are a lot of place that many people park their cars and put signs on them because they are in an area where they are more visible. This is something that will get you a ticket in many areas of Lodi and Stockton.

    Lodian- There is NO scientific evidence to support the biological concept of race. The concept of race appears to have two proponents:1) Xenophobes2) Anti-Dentites2) Liberals Personally, I do not make financial decisions based on alleged race that is self-identified.Ron Karenga the man who invented Kwanzaa, spent 4 years in prison for forceable rape, false imprisonment, mayhem and torture of two self-described "Black" women followers. He beat one with an electrical cord and placed a burning soldering iron into the mouth of the other and raped them. He did other acts that can not be described.After "Karenga" left prison, he became a Marxist. He invented the concept of Nguzo Saba which is a collectivist celebration. He later renamed this Kwanzaa and set the start date after traditional Christmas day celebrations. December 26 of each year.For more objective details--see the now unclassified FBI report 68F.http://www.governmentattic.org/docs/FBI_Monograph_US_April-1968.pdf3) "During the early years of Kwanzaa, Karenga said that it was meant to be an alternative to Christmas, that "Jesus was psychotic", and that Christianity was a white religion that blacks should shun"--Prof Jed Levine

    Lodijoe-So not true. DMV didn't do that in my case. I rolled the dice for 1.5 years without insurance or a current tag for the car. All and I kept my license the entire time. When I had the money I went online to geico.com, purchased insurance, then went to DMV right here in Lodi, payed the back fees and penalty and was legal within about 2 hours. No suspeneded DL.

    Life is all about CHOICES. Make bad ones and you deal with the consequences. If they went to court regarding their license it wasn't about not paying their insurance. The insurance company notifies DMV when you don't pay and DMV will suspend your license. It does NOT require a court appearance so these people were in court for driving violations and knew they were driving illegally. Make better CHOICES next time.

    Get out of your houses guys. In Lodi I can buy a car without a license and yes I can also get car insurance without a valid license. I had a similar experience. My ex quit paying child support so I put my other car up for sell. Got a $400+ ticket for it being parked with a for sell sign. I went to court to arrange for payments then I lost my job. No job no child support and my unemployment check was more then the allowed amount for AFDC. I thought making sure my kids were fed and a roof over their head- so my licence was suspended for not paying the tickect. My mom paid my car insurance that did show that I did not have a valid lisence so that I could find a job. Not everyone with suspended is for DUI.

    Layla,Yes we are talking about the same person, The one who had to take out my childs car seat on Locust street. He was pulled over for the head light being out and at that time was told that he had a suspended license not even knowing that he did have one. We did not receive notification in the mail that his license was suspended. You posted this stating he did not have insurance which was not the case, he just did not have it on him and needed to bring proof that he had it and will have to do again now. This was horrible "STING" that you guys did to all of these people. I think that the people who are reckless drivers may have deserved this for again breaking the law but not the people who received suspended licenses for not breaking the law and just defaulting on payments. Especially at Christmas time. Most of these people might not get their cars back and I had to pay 100.00 to the police station and 200.00 to the tow yard for having my car in for one day.

    "Marissa: If something is incorrect, I always like to know so I can fix it in the online version and publish a correction in the print version. I assume you're referring to the person I talked to on Locust Street. If you could e-mail me something to confirm that, such as the kind of car (which I didn't publish), I can double-check the citation.If that's the car you're referring to, I heard no mention of a headlight when he was pulled over. The drivers stopped in this sting were all pulled over because they were seen driving away from court after having their licenses suspended. If they had no insurance, that came up after they were already stopped. I hope that helps clarify things.

    Okay, it would be nice for reporters to report corret information, He was insured on the car he was driving just did not have the proof with him, the reason why he was pulled over was because the headlight went out on the car, how can you pull someone over that does not have insurance, you must be a mind reader. Right? It would have to be because they were doing something illegal or something was wrong with the car. The reason why his license was suspended was becasue he defaulted on a payment to the county but that is what happens when you are in between jobs.He hasn't had a ticket that was for breaking the law in 3 years and still keeps ending up in court becasue of cirrcumstances like this.

And Obongo wants to give them amnesty and open the borders to any thief, rapist, murderer or drug dealer...as long as they have a politically correct heritage. Most are are outcasts from Mexico, where hard working and loyal Mexicans are tired of paying their bills and handing them freebies.These selfish Mexican squatters now want to squat here under the liberal idea of "political correctness" (they are only "looking for work").That pain from Mexico is now our pain!

    T&C, while the cost of installing a water is high now, just think of the cost 10-15 years from now, maybe twice as much. Better to get it done now.I witnessed a young girl crash her car into a parked pick-up. She was drunk on her azz, it would be interesting to see what kind of defence her lawyer will come up with, if any. She was crying and screaming as she was loaded into the back of an AMR of her way to the hospital, blood will be drawn, without a doubt.

    My wife's car was slammed into and totaled by a car with no brakes. None of the three men in the car had a license, insurance nor was the car registered. The great ending to the story is that they were following an employee of the EDD to some potential job sites. The police officer told them their car would have to be impounded.

    This isn't a joke. I, too, was hit and injured by an unisured motorist - he not only wasn't insured, he had no valid DL, the car wasn't even his, the car wasn't registered, and he was an illegal. The guy's car was towed, he was cited and the cop said that his field worker boss would hide him 'underground' until this 'whole thing blows over.' The cop gave him a citation but told me that the then 19 yr old would never show up to court. I have been in chronic neck pain since 2002 when I was hit by him. When people break the law, no matter how stupid it may seem to some, it costs. It costs insured motorists more in premiums, it costs people like me a life time of pain, and some it has caused a life time of grief and sorrow because their innocent loved ones were killed. When people do wrong things, it does cost. And Warren, even though you do have your DL, you should care because it's costing you too, in your insurance premiums as well.

    Gator- I also hate the scum sucking ambulance chasing lawyers. But I have an idea to shut them down. It would be simple. Change California law to require that in absence of fraud or other illegal acts as defined, all LEGITIMATE claims must be paid, honestly and fairly and there would be CRIMINAL sanctions for not abiding by the law. The ambulance chasers would be out of work in one day. I would also increase penalties for ANY insurance fraud. In Texas, a claims examiner can go to prison for LYING about a claim. In California, only false statements or fraud by the CLAIMANT or witnesses are illegal. Name one claims adjuster who has gone to prison for lying about a legitimate claim.

    continued. If the insured in this case is upset that the medical bills of the injured were NOT reimbursed, they have NO cause of action. This is an auto liability coverage ONLY. If the injured parties file a lawsuit against the insured, they must either fight the case in court, or make some type of settlement agreement NOT TO SUE the insured. The only issue is liability for the INSURED to policy limits. If the insurance company fails this legal contractual obligation, it becomes one more of the tens of thousands of BAD FAITH claims against insurers.I ask you a second question. If you drive a vehicle, and you own any property, how much is YOUR auto insurance coverage? This is a loaded question, because few mortgage companies require that you have liability insurance to cover the mortgage. They usually only require fire and flood insurance. Look at your policy! I bet its no more than 50/100/50? Anyone who owes a mortgage should have enough auto liability insurance to cover all debts, but few people have enough insurance. Why? The carriers don't want the risk.

    Your California Drivers License is issued to you as a privilege to drive a vehicle. There are certain conditions that go along with that privilege and I am sure most people know what they are. Just like all legal stipulations, break the law and you must endure the consequences. If you lose your drivers license it is most likely due to poor decisions you made. I have NO sympathy for unlicensed or uninsured motorist.

    L.E.F.L. Good advice! But I have a two important questions to ask you.Lets say a person has the legally required minimum auto insurance LIABILITY policy of 15/30/5---PER ACCIDENT. Agree?1) Is there ANY legal requirement in California law that REQUIRES that an auto insurance policy like this MUST BE PAID?I assure you that there is NO LAW that requires that an insurance company must pay a dime! The law ONLY requires that they investigate the CLAIM, not the accident. The law also requires that they provide a letter within x days that shows the claim is accepted or denied. The amount to be disbursed, if any, is up to the insurance company.If an insurance company pays only ten dollars on a DEATH claim beause of an auto accident with an insured vehicle, the claim is listed by the DOI as a "paid claim" on official statistics. These legally required policies are LIABILITY claims, not medical claims.If the insured is indigent, the insurance company LEGALLY only must protect the "assets" of the insured! Read this carefully! No assets ---no pay!

    I think it's unfortunate that some people (for whatever reason) can't have a driver's license. But if you HAVE to drive to work or to get somewhere else and you know you don't have a DL, AT LEAST have insurance. There's no reason for anyone to not have insurance. It's irresponsible and very inconsiderate to others.

    A drunk driver, under 21, with no license and no insurance hit the car I was riding in head on going 80 in 1974 north of Woodland. To this day I don't know why I wasn't killed! The drunk driver was killed!Cry me a river of tears for those without a drivers license who can't wait to get out of Court, give the finger to the judge and get back behind a wheel!

"Do your whining after an unlicensed, uninsured driver smashes into your car and injures you."If ya have your license suspended, don't drive. DUI's are often times related to a suspended drivers license. I applaud those who try to not drive once they have lost their license!

    I am glad that they are doing this. I was hit by an unlicensed, uninsured motorist a few years back...it did $6000 in damage to my brand new car. Her excuse...I just got out of the hospital with west nile virus...I didn't renew my license...when CHP asked her when her renewal was due...she said "over a year ago!" Thank God I had uninsured motorist-it sucks that I have to pay for someone else's laziness on a monthly basis just to cover my butt from their mistakes!

    Warrenb1973 - This is not a joke. Usually people with suspended licenses also do not have insurance. The insurance company usually will drop a driver when the license is suspended. I know this since I was hit head on by a driver who had a suspended license and was dropped by there insurance because of this. The driver who hit me had her license suspended because she was on her 4th DUI. She was also drunk when she hit me head. I was hospitalized because of the severe impact and have had trouble with my back ever since the accident. I had to pay my uninsured drivers deductible, which I should get back (it has been 19 years) when the women pays the $200.00 to my insurance company. Thank god I am responsible and carry uninsured motorist on my policy. I think if you went through half of what I did, the last thing you would think is this is a joke. What is a joke is that the women that hit me had just driven away from court that morning in her own car. She also admited she was drinking before and after court.
