What do they do with the cars? Well first they drive them and then they buy them for ridiculiously low prices.
In St. Louis, Missouri,like in many municipalities, the powers that be have legislatively enabled law enforcement to seize cars of persons suspected of DUI. If the vehicle is not recovered within a certain time by its true owner then law enforcement and their family members can purchase the seized vehicle at a cheap price, sometimes at 25% of the real value.
The city and the tow service split the loot from the towing. The "abandoned" cars become no cost rental cars to be driven for months without cost. In St. Louis, Aimie Mokwa, 33 years old, the daughter of Joe Mokwa, police chief, has helped herself to several cars on the cheap. Actually, it is a good thing the cars are so cheap as she has wrecked a Dodge Neon and a Ford Escort. She had a .17 blood alcohol content when she wrecked the Escort but somehow was not charged with DUI. Sounds fair to all concerned.
