Pay Your Parking Tickets or Lose your Drivers Lic.

A recent change in a state law regulating the issuance and renewal of driver’s licenses could generate thousands of dollars in revenue for Ferndale and could have a big impact for many municipalities throughout the state.

Discussion about Senate Bill 0130 began in the state Legislature last year but it recently gained approval and was signed into law. Essentially, the bill amended the number of unpaid parking tickets a licensed driver may have before the Secretary of State will not renew the license.

The law previously allowed drivers to have up to six unpaid tickets before license renewal would be denied; the amendment lowered that number to three.
