LANSING — Michigan motorists who pile up unpaid parking tickets may soon find it harder and more costly to get their driver’s license renewed with a new bill recently passed by the State House.
The bill, which was passed last Thursday in a 58-48 vote, will lower the number of unpaid tickets needed to prompt sanctions from the Secretary of State office from six unresolved parking violation tickets down to just three. If a motorist has more than three unpaid parking tickets, they will be blocked from being able to renew their driver’s license. The bill will return to the the Senate, which passed a version of this proposal last year. If the Senate agrees to changes made to the bill in the House, it would then be sent to Gov. Rick Snyder.
