We, the constituents of the State of Texas, resolve to have the "Driver Responsibility Law" revoked.
This law subjects us to being twice penalized, financially, for traffic/ driver-related violations. One penalty is assigned at the receipt of a municipal traffic ticket; the other, by the Treasury of the State of Texas.
For many of us, the fines imposed are NOT disputable and must be PAID IN FULL upon receipt of a "driver responsibility fee" notice. This punishment and the inflexibility thereof, cause undue financial hardship. Should we be unable to remit the fines imposed, we are subject to suspension of driving privileges, leading to further financial difficulty and loss.
By signing this petition, we demonstrate our opposition to this revenue-generating measure.
