"Car-friendly Venezuela, where gasoline is almost free and troublesome highway rules rarely imposed, has suspended a bus driver from the roads for a year in the first case of a suspended license in the OPEC nation. Police stopped Ramon Parra, 41, for driving at excessive speed in a large, overladen passenger bus that was missing one of its rear wheels. ... The first law allowing authorities to suspend drivers' licenses was introduced in 2008 but had not been used until now, Fernandez said. The maximum suspension is for five years, for killing someone."
