Police, fire approve ordinance
November 17, 2009 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- People caught driving on a revoked or suspended license in Chicago could soon have their cars impounded.
An ordinance to take that action was approved today by the Chicago city council's police and fire committee. A previous, similar proposal failed because the Department of Streets and Sanitation did not have sufficient room for impounded vehicles.
The new ordinance goes before the full city council Wednesday.
