Bill seeks to prevent drivers license suspensions in non-driving offenses

No one should lose their driver’s license over an infraction that isn’t related to driving.

That’s the premise of a bill (SB 1270) filed Friday by St. Petersburg Republican Sen. Jeff Brandes.

“It is time to address the growing problem of non-driving related license suspensions,” Brandes said in a press release announcing the bill. “Stop the madness and quit taking away people’s driver’s licenses for unrelated offenses, especially failing to pay fines and fees.”

The bill would prohibit suspending someone’s driver’s license for various offenses unrelated to driving – except for failing to pay child support.

1. everyone convicted of a felony and in prison

that I worked with, also lost their license (FL). It created all kinds of problems when they were released (FL isn't really a public transportation state - to get jobs, they needed a license - but to get their license, they needed to pay heavy fines, which they couldn't pay without a job......).
