Suspending a driver’s license for unpaid traffic fines and missed traffic hearings punishes people for their poverty and forces an impossible choice: stop driving and lose access to work, food, childcare and other basic necessities, or keep driving and risk criminal charges, more fines and fees, and even jail time.
At a time when jobs are scarce, New York should not be making the situation worse.
We need your help on this important issue.
TAKE ACTION: Tell Gov. Cuomo to sign the Driver’s License Suspension Reform Act.
