Detroiters Can Eliminate Driver’s Responsibility Fees

The Detroit Branch NAACP issued the following press release on
Tuesday, May 8, 2018.

DETROIT (May 8, 2018) – Today’s announcement by Mayor Mike Duggan of a special program to end driver responsibility fees for nearly 76,000 Detroiters is indeed welcome news. Nearly 350,000 Michigan residents have been affected by this terrible law which finally will end in October of this year. SB614 allows for the Workforce Development Training Program, which will enable drivers to get their driver’s license back much sooner. This law, coupled with the horrendous high insurance rates imposed on citizens of Detroit and other communities, diminishes the quality of life, prevents access to jobs and education, and can lead to unnecessary conflicts with law enforcement.
