Drivers who drive without a license or one that is suspended or expired should be subject to $2,000 fine and impounding of the vehicle (unless the vehicle belongs to someone else).
Drivers who have a valid license, but forgot to carry it with them or lost it, should be required to pay a $100 fine if they are required to show their card to a law enforcement officer. Such people should make sure that they always drive with and carry a valid driver’s license card. The law enforcement officer should be required to use other methods to check the status of a driver who does not physically have their license card with them. No law enforcement officer would be allowed to impose any hardship other than this $100 fine (and possibly a longer wait time during the traffic stop) upon any individual who has a valid driver’s license but who does not physically have their license card.
