    didn't give a bunch of "illegals" driver's licenses. You know how they complain about California and our sanctuary cities. Also, how do they know if it is a valid D.L., not just from California, but from any other state as well.

      If that were the case, the state police would have to pull over about 40-50% of all Interstate traffic here. It would be chaos. After all, if they wish to avoid Federal ire, they have to apply the law equally to one and all.

      Not to mention, that this only applies if one has already been stopped and/or detained for another reason.

      In the winter time it would be even worse, as somewhere near at least a few hundred thousand snowbird drivers come here to the state to live for the season. Cops aren't that stupid, and aren't about to scare off non-residents if they can help it. I have seen plates from all across the country here, and a good number from Canada as well. About the only US territory I've never seen here is Puerto Rico, and that's probably because I live far away from the interstate.
