The Struggle of a Suspended License
We live in a day and age that one must have a car and be able to drive. The reason for this is because everything is so spread out and not typically within walking distance. No one works or goes to school within walking distance. They have to drive. This, of course, is the side effect of urban sprawl that occurred in the 1950s and 1960s with the rise of the suburbs. People moved away from the inner-city and into the suburbs. With the roads that were put in place, this was really no big deal as it was not a chore to simply drive to work. It is easy to see, however, that if someone does not have a driver’s license or a car they are put at an extreme disadvantage in regards to upward mobility in society.
The Unfair Disadvantage
This is what makes having a suspended driver’s license so arbitrary. Yes, if you broke the law then you deserve to be punished within reason. But if you have your driver’s licenses suspended then you may have to quit your job, quit school, or other life-altering situations that you may never recover from. If the idea of the punishment is to rehabilitate, then this is the furthest from the proper punishment. As a person that no longer has a driver’s license can no longer be a productive, law-abiding, member of society. This is surely not what the judge had intended when judgment was passed. In order to keep your life on track and to learn from your mistakes, you must be able to work still and progress in life. If your license is suspended, then this is impossible.
