Steering Clear Driver's License Diversion Program Public Investment Plan 2018


Dawn Deaner (Metro Public Defender)

Project Purpose

This purpose of this PIP proposal is to implement a driver's license diversion program that interrupts the harmful cycle of debt, arrest, and deeper debt created by the criminalization of driver's license violations, and to redirect criminal justice dollars Metro spends on those prosecutions to a program that helps restore driver's licenses and expands economic opportunities for individuals living in poverty or near-poverty.
