One in seven drivers in North Carolina have a suspended driver’s license according to a new study by Duke Law professor Brandon Garrett. The research shows minority drivers are most impacted by the suspensions. Garrett says new state laws are needed to adequately address the issue. “It’s one of the most counterproductive punishments you can imagine,” Garrett said. “You can’t pay a fine, so we are going to take away the ability for you to earn your livelihood or get medical care that you need or take your kids to school. It doesn’t make any  sense.”
