107 CARS SEIZED IN VALLEY SWEEP.

Byline: Daily News

Los Angeles police impounded 107 cars during a sweep Saturday targeting unlicensed drivers and vehicles with expired registration in the west San Fernando Valley.

Eighteen officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Traffic Division took part in the sweep, combing communities for vehicles with expired tags, said Sgt. Danny Mastro of the LAPD's West Valley station.

The officers also pulled over drivers for speeding and running red lights, Mastro said.

A 1994 state law empowers police to impound vehicles of motorists without licenses, with suspended licenses or with registrations expired for more than one year.

More than half the motorists whose cars were impounded had no licenses or were driving with suspended or revoked licenses, Mastro said.
