City Paper is not for tourists
Sounds like Mayor Vince Gray has heard enough:
Following a letter from Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, Gray said he wants the arrests to stop for drivers whose registration has expired.
The mayor would be open to emergency legislation, which would not need congressional approval, to amend the existing law, opting instead for impounding those cars. This, like an arrest, would keep these vehicles off the road and avoid liability, since they would also be without insurance.
