Please support House Bill 7891 and Senate Bill 2567 to grant Driving Privileges to All Rhode Islanders. 

Dear Representatives and Senators, Through this petition, the people of Rhode Island request that you allow these bills to be sent to the floor of the General Assembly for a vote in both chambers. Rhode Island is ready and waiting for this progressive, economically positive act to happen. Sincerely, The Undersigned for a Safer Rhode Island

The Coalition for Safer Rhodes and Immigrant Rights Coalition have been advocating for the passage of legislation that would allow undocumented immigrants to earn driving privileges in the State of Rhode Island. We believe the impact of this legislation will improve the quality of life and overall safety of our communities, from higher rates of insured and licensed drivers, to greater cooperation between police and the immigrant communities they serve.

For more understanding of this issue and the positive impact driver's licenses would have on our State, please see the 2016 study conducted by Roger Williams University: A Legal and Policy Analysis of Driver’s Licenses for Undocumented Rhode Islanders.
