    licenses are dumb, if you’re rich you can keep points off your licenses, if you’re poor you lose it, then if you get caught driving without one, they give you 12 points and you lose it for more years, meanwhile, people like me that can afford lawyers have 27 improper muffler charges and drive everyday. Or you can just ride a bicycle down the highway, which is perfectly legal and does not require a license, and you’re exempt from the min speed limit….i hate the world
