Drivers Licence suspensions
This petition had 17 supporters
State Penalties Enforcement Register (SPER) has the authority to suspend your driver’s licence for any debt listed with them. That means that if you forget to pay a fine or don’t receive a camera infringement and it goes to SPER they can and will suspend your driver’s licence for non-payment even if the fine was not yours if it is listed against you it is yours. Even a toll notice.
This applies to every driver, your licence is not safe. Any debt that can be deferred to SPER could cost you your licence.
Why is this a problem you ask?
Do you need your licence to get to and from work?
Do you need your licence to do your work?
What if you are pulled over on a random check and you are told your licence is suspended?
How do you get home?
How do you get your car or truck home? Is it safe if you must leave it?
What if you have an accident and you didn’t know your licence was suspended?
Do you know what the cost will be to repair your car and the other people’s car or property and what if somebody is injured what then?
What if you have a medical condition and you are left in the middle of nowhere?
You think it can’t happen? It can and will! I spent 6hrs on the side of the road, no food, no water and no one around if something went wrong.
SPER deem you to be notified if they send you a letter. I say this is not good enough when it could endanger somebody’s life. How you ask? What if you are a diabetic or were only going down the road and you end up sitting on the side of the road for hours. No food no water What happens to you? Worse what if you have children and animals in the vehicle.
A driver’s licence should never be allowed to be used as leverage against a fine or payment of any sort, like blackmail, if you don’t pay this we will suspend your licence until it is paid, or you enter a payment agreement that SPER dictate, and if you don’t then you can’t work and your house, car, and anything you own is up for the taking.
If you think I am wrong check the SPER web site and see just what they can do.
But the real question is
SHOULD SPER BE ALOWED TO SUSPEND A DRIVERS LICENCE? YES OR NO
IF YOUR ANSWER IS NO THEN PLEASE SIGN THIS PATITION AND HOPEFULLY CHANGE THIS RULE!
