  1. Let's release all the people incarcerated next. 40,000 clowns in Vermont that can speed but can't pay their fines for 4 years? I bet they have no problem buying their beer, cigarettes, dope and heroin. This isn't about poverty. It is about obeying the law and obviously Vermonters have lost their way.

    1. Make no mistake, this is about appealing to under achievers and scofflaws during election season. Unable to justify their reelection by a decrease in healthcare costs and a prosperous economy, shameless liberals will resort to buying votes any way they can. You have a choice this November, don't blow it. But this isn't even the worst of it. You now can legally drive in Vermont as an illegal alien!

    the only people I know of who lost their license for DLS were people who were at the bottom of the ladder-- either working for sub-minimum wage or under the table, who couldn't afford insurance, got nabbed and had the choice of quitting their job or sneaking to it. Some of them got doubly screwed-- A) told that yes, now that they had the money to get reinstated, they went to DVM in Montpelier with the cash, only to be told there were other hoops they had to jump through. B) and as violators, the only insurance they could now purchase until the record was cleared, was a super-expensive sort (titled 399 maybe?) that insured that whatever sort of job they had, they were going to stay at the bottom of the ladder.

    Of course, our insurance system is perfect (look at health coverage), so there's nothing we should do about this. Government has no business empowering Vermonters at the bottom of the economic ladder, much less protecting them.

    1. Chuck, the pain and suffering the driver had to go through to regain their license was CAUSED by the very government you want to solve all their problems. Maybe they should look inward for answers instead.

    2. So basically, they are going to get their licenses reinstated, just so they can still continue to roam around without insurance - which, really doesn't cost a whole lot. I have an old car with liability insurance and the premium on it is $200 a year. And there isn't any hoops to jump through - they are clearly listed on their website, as well as notices sent to them at the address they provided to begin with.

  5. I am so tired of people who do not pay what they owe getting breaks so they can "restart" their lives. Whether its people not paying their property taxes or not paying driving fines... enough. I'm tired of my tax money going to let these people off the hook.

      If we did it for Wall Street, why can't we do it for people on Main Street? It's like those bookkeepers who go to jail for filching $20,000. If they'd stolen $20 million, they'd be running for President.

  6. Another sign that government wipes it's feet on the silent majority comprised of hard working, law abiding, responsible taxpayers while rewarding the slackards at every opportunity. The government views that silence as golden, since it permits perpetual exploitation of the taxpayer.
