End debt-based driver's license suspensions in Oregon!

TAKE ACTION NOW

Tell your Oregon legislators to vote YES on HB 4065.

Update: The Oregon House passed HB 4065 on February 18! Use this form to urge your senator to support the bill.

An unbelievable 334,338 driver's license suspensions have been issued in Oregon the past decade – not for highway safety reasons, but because someone could not pay fines from a traffic ticket, like not using their turn signal or having a headlight out.

Suspending a license deprives people of reliable, lawful transportation necessary to get to and from work, keep medical appointments, care for their family or to meet their financial obligations.

This counterproductive policy traps people in the justice system, and often leads to increased fines and fees for people who can't afford to pay.

It's time to end this ineffective and harmful practice once and for all. Take Action!
