I do not see what all the fuss is about over drivers licenses for undocumented aliens.
All the remarks I have seen printed complain about more cost, and it will not make them safer drivers. Apparently these people don’t drive at all, or do so with their eyes closed. If you want to see why Californians pay much higher insurance rates and vehicle insurance rates, all you have to do is drive across town, either on the freeways or on the surface streets.
The complete disregard for the rules of the road as set forth by the Department of Motor Vehicles, lack of concern for others, and apparently, the “rules are for others not me” syndrome are the main cause for California’s woes.
Now having said that, the majority of the drivers who are irresponsible are not Mexican immigrants, but died-in-the-wool, born-here Californians. As a holder of a commercial driver’s license for 42 years, I have witnessed all manner of stupidity on the road from texting, the putting on of makeup, eating a breakfast sandwich and drinking coffee while driving with one’s knees, and I could go on and on. If people are upset, get over it.
Never miss a local story.
