Fines and Fees

In Florida, failure to pay a court fine or fee can result in the suspension of a drivers license. This creates a burden not just socially, but also can prohibit a person from finding reliable transportation to get to work and pay off the fine leaving them open to further punishment. These bills would remove the authority to suspend a driver license based on a failure to pay fines or fees if the underlying offense is not driving-related. Both bills failed to receive a vote on the chamber floor.
