On Should drivers with suspended licenses get waivers to drive to work?

Driving is a privilege, not a right. The answer is No NO NO. I don't want to be on the road with some crackhead drunk on his/her way to work at the tattoo parlor or strip club.

Driving is not a right, it is a privilege. If you can't handle it, then you might need to do without it until you value it again. There are buses, cabs, bicycles, and your own two feet to get you places instead of a car.

NO. If they've gotten to the point of having their license suspended, then that is their punishment. They'll have to find other means to get around. Otherwise, what's the point?

There should always be an exemption for work, doctor etc. Why would you give a person that makes bad decisions another reason to be irresponsible?

Their should be no exemption for the government that takes away a person's drivers licence for non-moving violations like parking tickers or burnt-out tail lights. They should be voted out of office.

Having your drivers license suspended for unpaid traffic fines, as the other story suggests, is one thing. A suspended license for something truly reckless and/or dangerous, like DUI, vehicular manslaughter, etc., is something very different. I'd say yes to the former and no to the latter.

I say, "No". Punishment is meant to hurt a little somewhere. If you want to drive to work, don't get into trouble!!!

No, otherwise it's no punishment. Why not just slap their wrists and take their bubble gum away?
