Summary as passed: (all summaries)
License suspensions for failure to pay judgments. Allows a person whose driving privileges, registration certificates, and license plates have been suspended for nonpayment of a judgment to petition the court for reinstatement. The court may order reinstatement even if the judgment has not been satisfied and no longer may be enforced, if (i) the judgment creditor cannot be found and if his heirs cannot be found, and (ii) the judgment debtor has paid into the court an amount equal to the judgment, court costs and all interest. The court is to hold any such payments for one year. If the payment is not claimed by the judgment creditor during that period, the court shall transmit the payments to the State Treasurer or his designee to be disposed of in accordance with the State Unclaimed Property Fund (Chapter 11.1 of Title 55).
