Despues de la aprobacion de la ley AB353, la cual que limita el periodo de decomiso para conductores sin licencia detenidos en retenes, el estado ha cambiado su tactica para usar mas la "patrulla de saturacion" para seguir quitandonos los carros. Por eso vienen varias patrullas de saturacion tambien en la lista.

Ever since the passage of AB 353, which limits the impound period for cars driven by unlicensed drivers caught in checkpoints, the state has changed tactics, using "saturation patrols" in order to continue taking our cars. That's why this list includes several saturation patrols.
