The problem is that the laws are made by people who were born, raised and still have silver spoons in their mouths.
The problem isn't how strict the laws are, it's who the laws are strict on. They are too strict on people who they shouldn't be strict on at all and not strict enough on people who should be boiled in oil.
Example: Person A has three DUI's and gets 90 days in jail.
Example B: Person B has no points on his license, no DUI's but lets his insurance lapse one month so he could afford to pay his mortgage and keep a roof over his family's head, gets a letter in the mail suspending his license because his SSN came up in the lottery. Wow! He works in Cleveland and lives in Canton so he gets stopped on the way to work Driving on a suspension. Does anyone really expect this guy not to drive to work so he can pay his bills? His family is counting on him. What's the solution? Give him even more fines, another suspension, put him in jail for a while so he can loose his job. Don't get me going on this. It's horrible and ridiculous.
Anyone with a Suspended License for a Non Moving Violation or DUI should be given another chance, under condition they are continually monitored to show proof of insurance. That way, the tax dollar sucking jails would be much less crowded, the number of drivers under suspension would be cut by at-least two thirds and people could pay their mortgage instead of worrying about paying Fines and Reinstatement Fees. They could make it to work on time, as well and increase productivity. This is a huge problem that isn't designed for safety or to keep insurance prices low. They are bringing up this problem because Ohio is facing a huge deficit and this is big, big, money for the state government, who runs the BMV. I hope everyone wakes up on this!
