Some state lawmakers report there are now 800,000 Ohio motorists behind the wheel, who are driving while under suspension.

State Representative John Barnes, (D)-District 12, and Garfield Heights Municipal Judge Deborah Nicastro believe it’s a growing problem that requires a change in Ohio law.

Judge Nicastro told News 5 the schedule of reinstatement fees and fines imposed on suspended drivers is far too punitive, and can quickly pile-up, making it extremely difficult for drivers to re-establish their driving privileges.

Nicastro believes the state law has too many drivers caught in a loop of repeat violations and growing fees, making it much harder for them to find or maintain employment.
