Even though Nicole Richie has the same DUI charge as Paris Hilton and a record as a repeat offender, she still has her driver’s license and nobody seems to know why. TMZ reports:
Paris was busted September 7, 2006 — and around 5 months later, she had already lost her driving privileges and was later arrested for violating her probation for driving on the suspended license. Richie was busted for DUI on December 11, 2006 — and almost 6 months later, she is not only still driving … but the California DMV hasn’t even begun to take action against her … [A rep for the California DMV] said: “I have no idea why Nicole still has her license.”
What the hell are they talking about? So now all of a sudden taking drugs and driving on the wrong side of a freeway is grounds for losing your license? Last I checked this was America, not Nazi Germany. Next you’ll tell me I shouldn’t steer with my feet, or cover my face with both hands when switching lanes.
UPDATE: Turns out the DMV only has a mandatory license suspension when alcohol is involved, and Nicole Richie only smoked pot and took Vicodin. Take that legal system!
