Texas’ latest law to punish deadbeat parents who try and get away without making their child support payments is especially brutal, because they’re not allowed to legally drive a car unless they cough up the dough.

That’s right, if you’ve got outstanding child support payments in the state of Texas, you could be denied registration for your car.



Texas officials announced back in August and started enacting the rule this month, leaving a lot of delinquent child support payers very upset

The Dallas Morning News has reported that the new law does seem to be working.



The Texas Attorney General’s office reportedly has collected over $160k in payments since the law’s been enacted.
