Abstract

Despite the need for access to a car in most US towns and cities, only sixteen states effectively allow undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver’s license. In new research, Jesus M. Barajas finds that when undocumented immigrants have access to driver’s licenses, there is no change in the number of miles they drive or trips they drive alone, but it does increase the number of carpool trips taken.
