  •  For what it's worth, I've been popped driving on (10+ / 0-)

    suspension twice, both times an MA license in MA w/ valid MA plates.

    Once they impounded the car and arrested me.
    The other time they impounded the car and left me standing by the side of the road.

    The cops know that you might or might not get out of the driving on suspension charge. They also know that nobody, and I mean nobody, gets out of impound fees. So by impounding the car, they're assuring that you get punished.

    If I wanted to screw with a low-budget direct action group, getting impound fees built up would be a very good way to apply pressure. If you don't have it back in a week, you're probably not getting it back.
