    So sick of these morons driving like idiots and crashing and endangering others on the road. There needs to be more consequences to driving without valid dr license as well as proper registrations. Start impounding cars, stopping welfare benefits and lock the idiots up if needed.

      I agree to a certain extent. They shouldn’t be operating those vehicles while suspended, revoked, or what have you, but at the same time, the state’s answer for not paying municipal fines, falling behind on child support, etc. should also then be changed. People need to get to work, so they can pay those fines, pay that child support, etc. When you start enacting laws that make the common average man a criminal, it’s not a very good law. Like Obamacare, can’t afford it still? We’ll fine you then too! I do recognize driving as a privilege, not a right… I wish those fools on the north side would do the same… but they won’t. Ever. this whole country has gone to hell in a hand basket, and I’m taking my family and getting out while we can. Before Hillary, Donald, or Bernie have me bent over the next barrel they’ll put in place to keep the middle class white man down… like we do by taking their driver’s licenses away for the inability to pay a debt.

    I am sure that their insurance was up to date. It is a crap shoot driving in Milwaukee. No matter how careful you drive something will come up. No respect for anything.
