Elimination of Michigan Driver's Responsibility Fee

This petition had 116 supporters

The Michigan Department of Treasury has imposed a tremendous miscellaneous fee on Michigan drivers. The fee has nothing to do with helping a Michigan driver become more responsible, however it hinders Michigan's drivers from completing normal everyday tasks and stops drivers from taking care of their true responsibilities. Most jobs require a valid drivers licence even if the job is not a driving position. Reliable transportation is also a requirement for most positions available. The Michigan drivers responsibility fee is a lose-lose situation; a loss to employers as well as potential employees. If the fee is not eliminated soon, Michigan's economy will continue to struggle and be plagued with debt, unemployment, and lost opportunities. Furthermore, the drivers responsibility fee has no education program to teach a driver to be more responsible which makes it completely unnecessary. The Drivers Resposibilty Fee is the only miscellaneous program on the Michigan Secretary of State website. The fee cannot be waived or appealed and has no programs in place to help Michigan drivers become more responsible.
