License suspensions under pressure, Pot smokers rejoice, Trump’s winning, guns are losing and CA can’t breath 

Good morning!

The ACLU of Northern California and other groups are pressuring Solano County Superior Court to stop suspending the driver licenses of people who can’t afford to pay fines for infractions.

The ACLU and others would prefer the suspension of licenses stop altogether, but argue courts should at least determine if the driver has an ability to pay prior to any suspension.

Flashback: The groups pressured San Mateo County Superior Court last month. At that time, CalWatchdog asked ACLU staff the obvious question: Didn’t these drivers get themselves in this mess by getting cited in the first place?

“We can hold people accountable without also ruining their lives,” said Micaela Davis, staff attorney with the ACLU of Northern California, noting that losing the ability to drive limits the ability to work.
