In 2017, about 60,000 Colorado driver’s licenses were cancelled due to unpaid traffic tickets. Do you believe that suspending driver’s licenses should be reserved for bad driving, not debt collection?



While I would have to study the matter further before reaching a final conclusion, I am skeptical of a policy that cancels driver’s licenses based on non-payment of traffic tickets. I believe such measures disproportionately punish indigent Coloradans, and given how many Coloradans depend on their cars to keep their jobs, meet child-care obligations and perform other necessary tasks, we should be cautious about such a draconian step.
