Legislation would give Californians who can't pay traffic fines and lost their licenses a break, is being introduced at the capitol.  

The bill calls for a rollback of license suspensions for people who have not been able to pay their traffic fines and fees.

 The legislation would affect about 200-thousand people in California, according to lawmakers who support the legislation.  

This is part of an effort by some Democratic lawmakers to make these policies more lenient for low income people, who may receive a traffic violation and then see their financial life spiral downward as they first lose their license and then their ability to drive to work.
