My thoughts exactly, Beakus!
These are already the jokers who drive without insurance or inspections etc. But they have no trouble buying a nice 60" HD television or spending big at carnivals, having plenty of beer in the cooler. So lets make it easy on these a--holes and let those of us who follow the law continue to pay for them.
You are correct, Beakus. Those who attempt to comply are the focus of law enforcement. Those who hold the same laws in contempt are ignored.
This sounds like another case of a law enacted that when people who have committed a crime and who cannot or choose not to pay the fine, receive a pass. What about the folks who bowed their neck and paid their surchage payments, eventhough the payment caused a huge problem with their finances?
Now the DPS is going to reward those who did not pay their fines, and probably chose to drive anyway, with a pat on the back and say that's okay. It reminds me of the irresponsible folks who run up a big credit card debt and eventually settle to pay a small portion of the bill because they cannot or will not pay. What about the responsible customers who pay 100 percent of their bill all the time?
The surcharges are a state mandated fraud and thievery of the citizens least able to pay.
Driving may not be a right, but it is reequired to survive.
