39. "eventually"
Eventually isn't good enough when your kid needs to be fed today, your rent is due today, your kid is about to be kicked out of daycare for nonpayment, and you're in danger of losing your job as a result.

When you fail to show up for a court review, then what? Another bench warrant? Big whoop.

I had a bench warrant out on my ex's employer for about a year and not a damn thing happened. He withheld child support from the ex's paychecks - but spent it on his own kids instead of sending it to the court. The arrest warrant was less than useless. The guy didn't show up for a single court date, nobody lifted a finger. The only reason I ever saw the money is because eventually he got divorced, and needed his credit fixed so he could rent an apartment.

Any law that relies on the deadbeat to be stopped for a driving infraction before enforcement can take place is an insult. I'm sorry you view it as too extreme.
