According to WILX-TV 10, there's a new found freedom for thousands of Michigan drivers, now that the state's driver responsibility fees are officially eliminated.

Some drivers say they're saving money, feeling relief and happy to get back out on the road.

Earlier this year Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill that eliminates all driver responsibility fees.

The DRF repeal clears almost $650 million in fines owed by over 350,000 drivers throughout the state.

State officials say if your license was suspended because of the DRF law, the $125 reinstatement fee will be waived through December 31st.
