I work 45 minutes from home. You're telling me that if my license gets suspended because I forgot to pay a traffic ticket (probably BS in the first place), I should just not go to work and lose my job? Right.

With police on every corner, it is inevitable that one will eventually find some cause to be pulled over and ticketed. Many people are barely making ends meet in this area as well as other areas. When they cant pay the high fines, their license is suspended. How does one on a fixed income pay a $200 fine? I am not surprised at this. I guess the city has to make up for their cuts from the state that result in casino tax cuts and new police cruisers. Did they ever find that gold car that cut the officer off and caused a wreck and left the scene at Washington Ave.? Now that person should have a suspended license!

What is being done? besides talk??? Trouble is- Citizens know that some get away with it- with the blessing of the city/county.

Life isnt fair. I feel bad for people that cant pay their fines. Back in the 80's, I was in that place where if I got a flat tire, I had to have it repaired and it took from a utility bill. An illness cut into the rent money. Its a different time now. If the poor are paying these things, they are doing something illegal to get the money.

Those who can afford it the least, always get hit the hardest. But the city is making money from this. Often, the person that looses their license could not go to work, if they pay the ticket, they cant pay the rent and kids homeless. Lesser of 2 evils.

Use to be-watch out going through Glen Dale. One mile over the speed limit would warrant a stop. Glen Dale has nothing on wheeling now.

Some young people recently told me that they called a cab because they were drinking. Waited an hour. Called back. This went on for over 2 hours before getting a ride elsewhere. Wheeling needs cab competetion for sure. Heard this same story many times. Only in wheeling.
