Debt-based driver license suspensions are a poverty penalty that punishes people solely because they are poor. The law needs to be changed, and you can help.
Your lawmakers are considering HB 2614, which would end debt-based driver license suspensions, and they need to hear from you. Use the form below to contact your legislators and let them know you support this common-sense bill!
Access to a valid driver license is essential in Oregon to drive to and from work, school, job interviews, medical appointments, the grocery store, or religious services. Suspending driver licenses based on traffic fines is an ineffective way to raise revenue and it entrenches low-income people into cycles of poverty, debt, and incarceration from which it is difficult to break free.
Ask your legislators to end this ineffective and unfair practice and to vote “yes” on HB 2614.
