1. Findings.  The party states find that:

B. Violation of such a law or ordinance is evidence that the violator engages in conduct that is likely to endanger the safety of persons and property; and [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
C. The continuance in force of a license to drive is predicated upon compliance with laws and ordinances related to the operation of motor vehicles, in whichever jurisdiction the vehicle is operated. [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]

[1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
