Byrd Law Comments on Whether Driver's Licenses for Undocumented Immigrants Reduce Beaumont Personal Injury
|Pressemitteilung von: The Byrd Law Firm|
|(openPR) - With many hit and run accidents caused by those without a driver's license, Beaumont personal injury attorney Jason Byrd wishes to discuss proposals to offer driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants.
Such a proposal is currently under discussion in Los Angeles because it is believed that allowing undocumented immigrants to get a license would be safer. Those who currently do not have a license may be driving even without having undergone driver's tests. Further, those without a license are also uninsured and may drive more nervously or erratically.
Jason Byrd comments on how many believe that allowing licenses for undocumented immigrants is not an immigration issue, but is instead a safety matter. "Too many people don't have insurance because they can't get a license. When these people cause a Beaumont personal injury, they may leave the scene. Allowing immigrants to get a license could reduce the risk of accidents because people on the road will be tested, and could help ensure people have insurance if they do get into an accident. But of course, some people have issues with allowing illegal immigrants to get licenses.," Byrd commented.
The Los Angeles chief of police has been particularly vocal on supporting reforms that would allow licenses for undocumented immigrants and was quoted as saying "Why wouldn't you want to put people through a rigorous testing process? Why wouldn't you want to better identify people who are going to be here? It doesn't make any sense to me. And we could increase safety on the roads. When you make things illegal you cause a lot of other things by chain reaction."
As a Beaumont personal injury attorney, Jason Byrd deals with the consequences of accidents involving unlicensed and uninsured drivers every day. "When someone leaves the scene of an accident, it is especially devastating to victims who may suffer worse injuries and struggle for fair compensation" Byrd believes. So what will happen with this licensing controversy? “We can only wait and see.”
