This surcharge by MSB is double jeopardy, and it was on the news that they are trying to do away with it because the DPS is NOT getting their money from MSB. If anyone has current information on this please email me rainmanlee204@yahoo.com
Thanks.

Today I was browsing the web looking for information on the surcharge and visited the Arlington Tx warrant page. thousands and thousands of names of people with warrants out for arrest. The infuriating part was that 90% of these were auto related, insurance, failure to maintain, moving violation type warrants. Our police force has become a body of revenue collectors for the government. They spend more time arresting and searching for people who have not physically stolen from, hurt someone , abused or killed another human beinthsn searching for harden criminals who maim, kill, steal and terroize our citizens. They are incarcerating good everyday peopl, and sucking the harding working money from our families and destroying our lives when we have not physically done anything too anyone. I even read one article written by a politician that said something to the effect (as he was bragging about our DWI laws in Texas) We don't know who will cause a accident, but we know some might.
I too am going through this hell. I unfortunatley got a DWI on Valentines Day where I had 3 drinks with my fiance'. I say fiance' because that was the night he proposed. It makes me so angry when these high and mighty holier than though types get on and say "if you did't drink and drive, or if you did'nt commit a crime, this wouldnt have happen". I am 49 years old a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 7. Who went out for one special night in 6 months. And I am not a bad person or and irresponsible person. We went to a restaurant / bar .5 miles from my driveway. That's about 4 blocks. I got pulled over 4 driveways from my home because "I didn't use my turn signal". The officer followed us from the establishment. And Pantego Tx is known for how horrible the police dept is.(We are getting out as soon as we can afford to so as not to give this city another dime we don't have to of our tax money) My first court date is in a month and I have been told that unless this is dropped by some miracle, I may face lawyer fees, court fees, class fees, interlock fee (even though I have to sell my car to pay for this they may require me to have a home one!!!WTF)and of course probation fees, and 100 dollars a month aprox for 3 years (3000.00 total surcharge. So I will be a 49 year old grandmother with no job (due to 2 layoffs in 18 months) no car, no license and 10000.00 to 15000.00 in penalties and fines. UNBELIVABLE.
Thanks for letting me vent. I hope all of you going through this can find some peace. There is nothing more humiliating, and infuriating as this and I know it is hard to stay positive and not let "THE MAN" get you down. Stay positive and hang in there. Good Luck

In this economy they should be lucky that people are paying their fines and tickets in the first place, they shouldn't be raking us over the coals like this. I don't even live in Texas any more but I still can't get a license in Washington now because Texas has suspended it there. My ticket was for expired registration and no insurance, I paid those tickets in full and on time. I have already dumps $500 into the surcharges and still owe $950...

My husband is losing his job tomorrow because of this stuff. Because his license is suspended. I don't know what we will do. I've been told he can't get unemployment either. We will be homeless soon.

I got a ticket for speeding in my company car. Get this, it was an INSURANCE company car with giant lettering down the side. I could not find my wallet fast enough and was removed from my car to his patrol car to look up my info by license number I verbally gave him. He gave me ticket for no license , no insurance ( laughable) and speeding. My Mom got sick and I had to go out of state to help out. I just paid the 3 tickets (700 + bucks) to avoid missing court. I have paid 2 " surcharge " letters mailed to my home telling me license would be taken. I paid 104.00 each surcharge for each of the 2 letters and now over a year later I just got another one ! This was 3 freaking years ago. Why am I getting the? How do I make it stop? I had insurance and a valid drivers license then, and still have both ! Why why why ?????

So both me and my wife have suspended drivers licenses from surcharges & tired of all this bogus Bullshit. Just curious if it could keep me from getting a driver's license in another state. If this what Texas is about then I don't want any part of it.

Sam,
I've checked on that very thing. Every state has a reciprical agreement with the others stating that if you owe for a ticket of suspended license then they won't let you get a new one in their state

Recall vote. Colorado showed us the way. Find one politician, get a recall, vote them out and watch the dominos fall. Either more people take to action and more recalls are held or the creditable threat of politicians losing their jobs will get this thrown out faster than anything we've ever seen before. Politicians do no speak for the people and now we have a tool and a blueprint to speak for ourselves.

My license is Over with, I can forget about ever driving Legally again. I had a few tickets like going 5mi...anyways I owe about 2,000 in surcharges alone! And I MUST pay 4 different dates each month!! Not one payment, and if Im late by one day, My license would be suspended again! I DON'T EVEN DRINK AND DRIVE!!!! So f**** you Texas and your little fees too! I'll be taking the bus and you ain't getting ONE PENNY from me.

Oh yea, for those unaware.....If you drive in texas, and your license is suspended, JAIL. You're going to jail and they will impound your car (and you might get imPOUNDED as well , pun intended) all because you couldn't afford to pay the useless surcharges, or were unaware of them. Which most people are aware of them now because I hear everyone complaining about it.

I received a speeding ticket WITH valid proof of insurance shown to the officer.

No where on the ticket did the officer write a citation for no valid insurance. No where on the citation fee I paid online did I get marked for having no insurance.

However, I received a surcharge fee in the mail saying I owe $212 for having no proof of insurance.

I have had a surcharge fee once for the same issue about a year ago. My card was outdated (my insurance was not however).

How do I go about fighting this thing? I have gotten pulled over twice in 2013, and both times I had valid proof. I cannot think of any time within the last two years I have had invalid proof other than what I have mentioned.

I am with you guys, and if anyone can send me any information how I can join your fight, please email me at happytaxes23@gmail.com

Thank you for your time.
