Or one could learn…

To not break laws when you can’t afford to pay the fines.

In a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday, attorneys for the two say North Carolina’s practice of revoking drivers’ licenses of people who can’t pay their traffic fines and court costs is unconstitutional because it violates the rights to due process and equal protection under the 14th amendment.

What do you want to bet that these 2 people have had a drink 4 or 5 times a week, Or ought a coffee from a coffeehouse….or eaten out since they got those fines? Unless they are already eating rice and beans, I’d bet they could have come up with the money, had they chosen to do so by making that a priority instead of spending money on other things….

Most people make different choices. Some never learn. Which category do you think these folks are?

One thought on “Or one could learn…

  1. Isn't due process the means to protect an accused person's rights?
    Driving is a privilege, not a right, and maintaining a privilege would seem to include paying up when you're fined for abusing that privilege.
    Or maybe being fined for abusing the privilege is in and of itself a violation of due process? I can't seem to keep up with these modern concepts of rights and privileges.
