New Law Targets Unpaid Traffic Fines in Delaware

Posted: Updated:

NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP)- Delaware Gov. Jack Markell is set to sign legislation targeting the driving privileges of motorists with unpaid traffic fines.
    
The bill to be signed Monday changes the procedures for the suspension, nonrenewal, or nonduplication of driver's licenses or driving privileges for the failure to resolve motor vehicle charges.
    
The new law says driver's licenses will not be renewed or duplicate licenses issued if there are outstanding fines or fees for minor traffic offenses subject to voluntary assessment until the fees are paid by the license applicant.
    
The law says the suspension of driver's licenses will be reserved for offenses affecting traffic safety such as reckless driving, driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident, multiple speeding or other offenses.
