Laws vary by state. A violation that triggers a license suspension in New York may not do so in Oklahoma. But every jurisdiction in the United States and Canada has at least some - or many - laws on the books that suspend driving privileges for things that have nothing to do with driving.

"The legislatures have been thinking it would be a good idea to encourage people to pay their fines," says Nichole Yunk Todd, a founding director of Wisconsin's Center for Driver's License Recovery and Employability. "We cannot find a state that doesn't do it."

One of the most common ones is for unpaid parking tickets. Given that late fees typically accrue, and a suspension can last until the fine is paid, you sure don't want to land a $600 ticket in Seattle or a $1,000 ticket in San Francisco.
