  1. I believe hit and run drivers are most likely uninsured and unlicensed, have been drinking or on drugs, or are illegals. The APD needs to set up more DUI checkpoints around the city. Those caught in the checkpoints who are uninsured should have their vehicles impounded, those under the influence jailed and vehicles impounded. Illegals turned over to ICE and their vehicles impounded. If implemented, soon their will be few hit and run’s.

  2. Hit N Runs seems to be an epidemic, specially in Alhambra & Los Angeles. The LA Weekly a few weks ago ran a story (I think they had two stories because of the demand for more information) on this situation. According to the LA Weekly one reason so many hit n runs at least in Los Angeles seems to be lack of LAPD interest in preventing, investigations, resources to bring people to trial. Perhaps this might be one reason why we in Alhambra have the same problem.
