A recent article in the Tampa Bay Times cites many reasons other than driving offenses why Florida suffers from excessive driver’s license suspensions. One of the State Senators from Pinellas County, Jeff Brandes, has been working to rectify this issue through legislation.
“Under Brandes’ bill, the maximum suspension for a drug offense would be reduced from the current year to six months; make it easier for suspended drivers to get hardship licenses to drive to and from work; prohibit a license from being suspended solely for failure to pay a financial penalty; and require judges to ask about a person’s financial status before imposing a fine.”
