Law enforcement in CA must provide just cause to hold people’s vehicles and cannot automatically impound them for a set period


"The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday declared invalid a California statute requiring that police, after impounding a vehicle driven by an unlicensed driver, store that vehicle for 30 days."


"Have you ever had your car impounded for a month? Unless it’s proven to be necessary, this will no longer be the case in California.

The Associated Press reports that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday ruled that authorities can no longer impound a person’s vehicle for a set period of time without just cause."
