HB17-1162

Outstanding Judgments And Driver's Licenses

Concerning action that can be taken against an individual based on the individual's failure to pay for a traffic violation.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

Under current law, an individual who is cited for certain traffic infractions must either pay the penalty assessment or appear in court for a hearing. If the individual neither pays the infraction nor appears for a hearing, the court must issue a judgment against the individual. An individual who has an outstanding judgment:

  • May have their driver's license canceled;
  • May not receive a new driver's license; and
  • May not renew a current driver's license.

The bill repeals these penalties and provides courts with the option of withholding a driver's state income tax refund in order to satisfy the outstanding judgment.
