The police need to stop harassing these people. They don't bother illegal aliens for driving without licenses, stop harrassing American citizens.

it's called doing their job, it's illegal to drive without a license and without insurance. What if they have an accident and someone gets hurt? Who is going to pay the bills when the other driver doesn't have insurance.

You're right York! Bottom line, you have NOTHING to worry about if you have your license and insurance. Follow the law!

These people can't drive with a valid license because of other U.S. laws they they chose not obey. We have a big problem that our federal government won't address because it has been allowed to become a monster. The police have to do there jobs. I support our cops.

The Elmhurst police are to be commended. The above citations came as a result of observant police work (improper lane change, windshield obstruction, open alcohol, speeding) and that uncovered drivers using our streets without a license. Well done Elmhurst police!
