Janice Carter, a Black woman and Air Force veteran, faces financial hardship and works part-time for an organization that helps people involved in the criminal legal system. Carter did not know her driver’s license was suspended for an unpaid traffic ticket until a 2018 traffic stop. Carter cannot accept a better paying job as a caseworker that would enable her to pay her traffic fines and fees and DMV fees because the position requires a driver’s license.
