Something that has gained some attention in the media lately is debtors' prisons i.e. jails for people who do not pay something as simple as a traffic fine. My question is: while a living income guarantee would be sufficient to cover basic costs of living, how would that interact with something like traffic tickets? If the L.I.G. includes traffic fines, there is clearly a problem here with enabling crime.
What would be the mechanism for dealing with traffic tickets if, say, your sole source of income was a living income guarantee?
