I have dedicated many months of my time to prepare a report of sorts on the DRP. What I have discovered is that the entire fate of Texas is connected to the Surcharge Program. This is because the money from the Unconstitutional program is earmarked for the Tran-Texas Corridor, which is a strategic segment of what is to become a Super Corridor that spans the entire North American Continent.
The state is suspending people's license over not paying an excessive surcharge fee that is in addition to what you agree to in court. What's more is the money is going to pay for the Corridor projects, without consent or knowledge or the People or Congress! I believe that spreading the word would enable individuals to better deal with the negative effects that the TX DRP has had on their lives, as well as have a say in their own future.

Who receives money from the surcharges

Each surcharge collected by the department under this law will be remitted to the Comptroller, on a monthly basis. Trauma centers and county and regional emergency medical services will receive 49.5 percent of the collected money, and the **Texas Mobility fund** will receive 49.5 percent of the collected money. The money that goes to trauma centers will be handled by the Texas Department of Health, while the **Texas Department of Transportation** will handle money going to the **Mobility fund**, which funds highway projects, including the **Trans-Texas Corridor.** The remaining one percent of the collected money will go to DPS for operation of the Driver Responsibility program.

The Driver Responsibility Program was passed into law as part of House bill 3588, article 10.(The text of the law is located at http://www.capitol.state.tx.us , page 152 of the Adobe text version.)

Shouldn't be driving drunk if you can't afford it (or even if you can). Take responsibility for your actions.

I have had my license suspended for 4 and a half years now because of one D.W.I. I received in Montgomery County, TX when I was eighteen years old. I was given a court appointed attorney who advised me to plead guilty and take probation (Even though I had blown a .04 twice when I was pulled over, my lawyer never used it as evidence nor mentioned it to the judge). This was also after I had spent over a month in jail, waiting on court my court date. Needless to say I refused to pay court costs, probation fees, or attend the outrageous drug program I was forced to enter for no less than 9 months. I did my time and though it was over, wrongg... Now that I have the means to pay the outrageous amount of money to the "great" state of Texas. Three-thousand dollars for three years at $1,000 a year. Not to mention they charge me "interest" for not paying until I turned 21 years old. Furthermore I was required to attend 8 hours of alcohol awareness, 15 hours of drug class, and pay $250 for a reinstatement fee.
There, I'm done. Just wanted to vent.

P.S. Still payin, still ain't drivin'

You must take the DWI Education course mandated by the state in order for your license to be reinstated (required w/ all DWI's - per TX. CCP 42.12 Sec 13.).. Your atty. should have told you that but sadly I'm willing to bet he didn't. DWI's in TX. are very expensive and very time consuming - and with good reason. However, the court system does a poor job in many cases of informing you what is expected of you.

It is like Double Jeapordy!! You have to pay your fine on the local level,then pay it to the State!?! what the hell? What is Texas Law going to make up next? I have to pay on the Federal level?? for the same damn ticket? I was caught with driving while licence suspended, I had to pay $750.00 a year for 3 years, its stupid! Also when you even get a minor traffic offence now, after paying the fine at the municipal level you have to pay $250.00 a year to the state of Texas. I want the move the Hell out of this State if they do not change the law NOW!!

We all know the old saying, don't do the crime if you can't do the time. The thing is, we did the time. We paid our court cost, fines, did our probation, community service hours, and took the classes. That was our punishment handed to us by the court, and we did it. Now I am told that I have to do something to appease the state? It's like when you were a kid. You messed up and your Mom grounded you, then when Dad got home, he spanked you. Well, in this case the court is Mom and the State is Dad. Karma is a MF'r, but shouldn't the punishment stop at the gavel and not in Austin? Especially when you aren't even told about the DRP in court in the first place...

I am on both ends of this. My husband has a DWI so we are stuck paying these outrageous fines, however I am also on the end of I have had someone killed by a drunk driver. Something needs to be done about drinking and driving, but taxing people to the point of almost bankruptcy is not the answer. It is not going to stop someone from getting behind the wheel of a car drunk.

Also, I see on the petition that there are thousands of signatures, but how many does it take before it is turned over for review? Do people post these petitions and then forget about them? Nothing is going to be done about these fines if we don't let the higher officials know what we are thinking.

AMEN, SISTER! I'M FROM TYLER AND I BELIEVE THE SAME THING!
"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
We can't take this thing down from the top, it's virtually impossible. It has to start with local govt stepping in and saying "NO", and since our local govt has either been bought and paid for, or they don't care ; either way, it doesn't look good for us.

The surcharge program is wrong on so many different levels that it is hard to get to them all. It is unconstitutional, and it is an unapproved tax. It is not only brought on by a DWI convictions, but also no insurance, and driving without valid license. As for the insurance, I would love to develop a product, and be able to make everyone buy it! It is an unfunded mandate on the public.

Anyone who wants to be in power, should never be allowed to be in power. This sort of thing proves it!
