A neverending circle

I came across an interesting e-mail today about the surcharges the Texas Department of Public Safety impose upon Texas motorists. The author spoke of the hole a client of his was in due to over $11,000 in surcharges: surcharges for DWI, no insurance tickets and tickets for driving on a suspended license.

The client couldn't pay the surcharges because he couldn't get a job because the DPS would not renew his license because of the excessive surcharges owed. In his case, the only thing the DPS has accomplished is guaranteeing he will be breaking the law everyday.
