Penalties that address these types of driving violations already exist. These concerns can be addressed in better and less harmful ways that help Wisconsin residents and increase public safety without increasing burdens on our communities.

Comments
AB 696/SB 626 would have a drastic & harmful impact on low-income individuals and families. The bill's punitive measures would not increase the number of insured drivers, but would further punish low-income people for their inability to pay fees.
