If you have outstanding tickets, you are not allowed to renew your drivers license I thought. Or does this just apply to moving violations?

Not enough! I called them about people parking on my street during the paking ban and no one came.............the plows had to go around and the street was a mess for days.

it is true that if you do not pay your parking tickets you will be non renewable until you pay up.
