COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - More than 2,200 Ohioans have enrolled in a program to help get suspended drivers back on the road more quickly by letting them pay license reinstatement fees in monthly installments and legally resume driving in the meantime.
The program began six weeks ago, and officials expect it to grow as word spreads.
The Bureau of Motor Vehicles says nearly half of Ohio's roughly 1 million suspended drivers are eligible for the payment plan. The option applies to drivers whose only remaining license reinstatement requirement is $150 or more in outstanding fees. It excludes those who have court-ordered pending suspensions or payment plans.
Applicants must prove they have insurance and make a $50 payment toward their fees. Approved participants must then make $50 monthly payments to avoid being suspended again.
