Senate Roll Call 517 on
2014 House Bill 5414: Reduce, then end “driver responsibility fees”

Passed 37 to 0 in the Senate on June 12, 2014 To gradually phase out the so-called “driver responsibility fees” (a.k.a. “bad driver tax”) imposed for certain traffic violations, which were originally adopted in 2003 to avoid spending cuts in that year’s and subsequent state budgets. The fees for most offenses would be abolished as of Oct. 1, 2019. Reportedly, thousands of mostly low-income individuals have lost their licenses due to inability to pay these penalties. Senate Bill 633 would authorize doing "community service" as an alternative in many cases..
