NMA Driving News Story of the Week

California Chief Justice to Strip Rights from Motorists
The state Commission on the Future of California’s Court System developed the plan, which was presented in terms of wide-ranging benefits. It would “free up” court and law enforcement resources and “simplify procedures” for defendants. Each year, the state courts deal with 4.1 million traffic tickets, accounting for 75 percent of their annual workload. To relieve judges of that substantial burden, however, motorists would have to give up their due process rights.
