Nearly 170,000 Alabamians have lost their driver's licenses, not because they are dangerous drivers, but because they missed court and/or can't afford to pay their tickets.
These debt-based suspensions are bad for drivers and bad for Alabama. People who lose their licenses struggle to get and maintain employment, take care of their families, or go about the normal activities of everyday life. People who can’t drive or work pay less in taxes: Research shows Alabama loses $804 in tax revenue for every suspended license. As Alabama faces a workforce shortage, it’s time to end these needless suspensions and let folks get back to work. In 2022, a bipartisan bill that would have tackled this problem fell just one vote short of success. Let’s get it over the finish line in 2023.
