Sometimes our country’s laws are well-meaning. When the department of motor vehicles suspends your license for things like unpaid tickets or fines, the intention is to incentivize you to pay your debt. However, there are several problems with this in some cases.
Suspending someone’s driver’s license over unpaid tickets and fines assumes that you’re choosing not to pay as a choice.
