  3. Why or how does the court have the right to block a persons drivers license for financial gains in non related traffic offenses , like owed fines etc.and expect the person to pay up . When they take away the very thing that keeps them working and put them in unwanted cercomstanes …. lost job,lost home, and then homeless walking in the streets begging for food..all because of a unrelated traffic fine. If this isn\’t a classic case of abuse of power I don\’t know what the hell is.And let\’s don\’t forget If that person has a family, well they probably lost that too !

    1. Thank you for your feedback about the Ohio BMV and your experience with Ohio traffic offenses and the process of the Ohio BMV in collecting fines and fees. It’s very unfortunate that a person can have their Ohio driver’s license revoked or suspended because of unpaid fines but it is defined in the laws that govern the state. Having an Ohio driver’s license is a privilege and not a right and the state has the ability to suspend this since they are the controlling agency for licensing and vehicle registration.
