09 May: Turner Measure Would Reduce License Suspension Time For Those Who Acquire Insurance

TRENTON – Drivers who secure auto insurance could see driver’s license suspensions reduced by up to 10 months under a measure sponsored by Senator Shirley K. Turner and approved by the Senate Transportation Committee today.

“The current system perpetuates a downward spiral that makes it difficult for those caught without insurance to ever comply with the law and get that insurance,” said Senator Turner, D-Mercer. “These individuals lose their license, then lose their jobs and any ability to pay for insurance. It’s a counter-productive system that needs an injection of common sense.”
