Ohio authorities unsure how to halt suspended drivers

Published: Mon, December 5, 2011 @ 5:26 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Authorities in Ohio and elsewhere are bewildered about how to stop people from driving under suspended licenses or even lifetime driving bans.

Driver program director Kevin Lewis with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators says there’s nothing that can be done, short of taking the offenders’ cars away or putting them in jail.

A man who lost his license after killing an Ohio trooper while driving drunk was recently arrested in central Ohio’s Delaware County on charges of driving under suspension and having an open mixed drink in his vehicle.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Ohio troopers last year arrested 23,000 people for driving with a suspended license. But State Highway Patrol spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston it’s unclear what more that law enforcers could do to curb the problem.

Stan Auction off the cars ten days after taking them in. The owners can buy them back if they wish but at a cost.

Is driving really a privilege now a days? Either way, the police should worry about other things. Driving...really not a big deal. How about.."how to halt crack smokers" or "how to educate the east side".

Well Bp why even have drivers license or insurance? Most of the unlicensed drivers do not have insurance and ohio doesnt require proof of insurance or a license to plate a vehicle

I will fear no suspended license, no auto insurance, no current plates, etc...I have my rights! When is my access card going to pay for my car insurance, license plates, towing/impound fees, court costs, bond and pay me for my for lost wages...? Oh, I forgot, I don't contribute to society, sorry.

You do realize that it costs about $100,000 a year PER PRISONER to house. You have to pay for their food, clothing, security, medical treatments, dentistry, etc etc..

Everyone always says Throw em in jail! but when the tax levy comes up to PAY FOR IT, nobody wants to pay.

I agree
They want to put them in jail, but not pay for it. They want good cops to put them in jail, but not pay for them. They want kids educated, but not pay for it. They want mail delivered to their door, but not pay for it. They want good streets and bridges, but not pay for it.
