CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Montgomery County has revoked the driver's licenses of thousands of people in the Clarksville area who are accused of not paying court fines and fees dating back to 2012.

Montgomery County Circuit Court Clerk's Office Chief Deputy Patty Arms tells The Leaf-Chronicle ( ) that 14,223 notices were sent out this week after the county notified the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security that those people failed to pay litigation taxes, court costs or fines assessed by Montgomery County General Sessions Court.

Officials say a computer system change last year allows the county's computers to connect to the state system, making it easier to track delinquent cases and get licenses revoked.

Arms says people can set up a payment plan, but will have their licenses revoked again if they don't stick to it.
