Drivers with a suspended or revoked license who get pulled over in Chicago could see their cars impounded.The city council committee approved the plan Wednesday.

Drivers would also face a $500 fine.

Alderman Thomas Allen said he proposed the ordinance after a police officer told him that officers could not impound a vehicle even if the driver was found to be driving without a valid license.

The proposal could be approved by the next full council meeting next week.
