When you need to get to a city without getting shot, don’t get shot
It’s easy to fall asleep at the wheel and forget to check your license, but getting shot at a gas station in Los Angeles isn’t just a nightmare for drivers: you could be in for an uncomfortable ride home.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday that drivers with expired license plates and/or expired registration can now legally drive on the side of the road in the city.
But, to ensure they don’t accidentally kill anyone, you’ll need to bring your own license, registration, and proof of insurance.
“The LACSD is committed to providing safe, reliable transportation for all who wish to visit the city of L.A.,” the department said in a statement.
“The LA Sheriff’s Dept. has implemented this new policy as part of an effort to improve safety and reduce the risk of traffic fatalities.
As part of this effort, the Sheriff’s Departments Vehicle Safety Inspection Unit has begun testing and testing to ensure that the safety and security of the LACS community is maintained.”
To ensure safety, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is working to implement an automated checkpoint system to monitor and update vehicle information in order to maintain the safety of LACSW traffic safety and vehicle inspection records.
“The DMV issued a press release about the change Tuesday morning.
The department added that the checkpoint system will only be available on private property and not on public streets.
The new rules go into effect on May 2.
