Good drivers should be able to keep driving and keep working. But each year in IL, 50000+ licenses are suspended for reasons UNRELATED to bad driving. W/o licenses people lose income & sink into debt. Support #License2Work today #twill.

When people can’t afford $1,000+ in tickets, Chicago slams residents w/ excessive #FinesandFees, then takes licenses for falling behind. But no license=no way to work=no way out of debt. #DrivenIntoDebt License2work.org

In 2017, 75% of license suspensions for parking & compliance tickets were in low-income zip codes, & 80% went to drivers in communities of color—hurting job prospects, families, & more #TwoChicagos #BlackJobsMatter #BlackLivesMatter #StopSuspendingLives

Good drivers should be able to keep their insurance, bring kids to school & get to work. Instead, taking licenses for tickets and #finesandfees, we’re forcing law enforcement, judges, jails & taxpayers to waste resources chasing safe drivers.

Many states have ended driver’s license suspension for reasons unrelated to driving. Will Illinois follow? Support the #license2Work Act so safe drivers can get to work, pay income taxes & pay off debt. #StopSuspendingLives #twill
