Lindsay Wants Restraining Order Against Paparazzi

11/30/2010 11:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan believes she's being denied driving privileges because the paparazzi are constantly on her tail ... so she's asking her lawyer to get a restraining order prohibiting them from chasing her.

Lindsay Lohan Restraining Order
As we first reported, the L.A. County Probation Department -- along with the DMV -- have given Lindsay the green light to drive again. And Betty Ford was down with it as well. 

But sources involved in the decision tell TMZ ... just when Lindsay was supposed the get the keys, Betty Ford decided it was too much of a safety risk to put Lindsay behind the wheel, because the paparazzi were creating an unsafe driving situation.  

We're told Lindsay emailed her lawyer this weekend -- with pictures attached showing the paps following her -- asking the attorney to go to court for the restraining order.

Sources say no decision has been reached on whether a restraining order is a viable option.  In the meantime, Lindsay is still stuck in park.

Linds,

You cant Blame the Paps for your DUI's.........

The Photos from the paps are the ONLY Reason You are able to make money. They keep you in the tabloid News, which keeps you of Interest to the General Public. You are Known for nothing else except your Craziness. The Paps go away. So do You.. So does any Big Income. Your really Known for nothing. Stay SOBER...... Welcome the Paps to Photo Opt it. Otherwise, I hope you have a wealthy friend to take care of your High end Living.

Poor Lindsey, we should feel sorry for a spoiled brat who has spent a fortune on high living, driving drunk,wrecking cars and thumbing her nose at any authority. How many chances does she get. Having had some experience dealing with someone who had the same problems as Lindsay, rehab is a game to them."Tell them what they want to hear" is their motto. Play the game and get out of here. If she didn't have money from the bleeding hearts who keep giving her chances, she might have to live in the real world.
There's lots of talented actors who would be happy to have her opportunities. Drop her like a bad habit.

People on here really avoid looking at the whole picture. She just wants to be able to drive like every other person out there. The DMV and courts said she could drive, so she should be allowed but BF stated it would be too dangerous because of these s***-bag papz so therefore, Lindsay can't drive because she is court-ordered to go through with BF's treatment which includes doing what you are told. I totally agree that she should just hire a driver for a bit until she becomes a little less irrelevant or have friends/family do the driving for her (like Paris has been doing). Regardless, you over-grown welfare collecting internet trolls need to realize this girl IS doing what everyone didn't think she would and that is creating boundries and changing her life. I obviously can't see this restraining order going anywhere but she is trying and that is something you learn in treatment. You learn to atleast try and if it doesn't work, you can still keep your chin up high and be proud of yourself as a person. I, for one, am proud of what Lindsay is accomplishing and wish her nothing but the best. Jail, institutions and death.. That's where untreated alcoholism will take you and good on Lindsay for finally seeing this.

I THINK THE PAPS SHOULD BACK OFF, THEY CAN FILM HER WHEN SHES COMING OUT OF PLACES NOT ON THE ROAD DRIVING. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO PRINESS DIANA.

She isn't asking for privacy from the paps so she can go to meetings or counseling in anonymity, she wants to DRIVE. Every time that girl gets behind the wheel she gets into more trouble. This has nothing to do with setting boundaries or doing anything "healthy" for herself, she just wants to be able to DRIVE! Don't drive until your probation is over and maybe you can be done with it! Then get behind the wheel and make a fresh crop of trouble for yourself. Seriously Lindsay, same mistake expecting a different outcome.....get a clue

Haha LOL is this a joke? Lindsay loves the pap attention. She should be grateful they follow her as it is not her A-list acting career that has been keeping her name in the media since Mean Girls instead it has been the booze, drugs, jail stints, rehab stays, court appearances, SCRAM alerts and her lesbian romance that has kept her a household name.

Oh and for anyone who doubts she loves the attention here is the link to Lindsay doing a full on photo shoot for the paps outside her sober living home. Since when did staying in a sober living facility turn into a photo op? She is delusional and it makes me wonder just how serious she is. Oh yeah she is afraid of the paps alright lol.

Here is the link of Lindsay posing for paps while at sober living:

Why are some people not reading this story correctly? Lindsay has her license back, she wants to drive but the paps are making that impossible. Shes not blaming the paps for her DUI's or anything else, why do haters talk such nonsense.

The paparazzi are practically living outside the BF sober house. Whilst they are so close its considered a risk. Why should the paps get away with this? they are the s*** of the earth. Lindsay has had two day passes to LA and on each occasion they followed her to and from LA. x17 even have videos of it for heavens sake. To do that is dangerous, the paps weave in and out of traffic without consideration. If they cause an accident by following Lindsay guess who haters will blame?

She's asking for a restraint on the paps to follow/chase her when she's driving a car. Nothing wrong with that. Should be federal law!!. Good for you Lyndsay for at least trying.

She shouldn't be driving at all.

And she has no right to privacy. You want to be a famous movie star and get the big paychecks then you have to give up your anonymity. It's all part of the bargain.

Are you for real? All Lindsay is asking for is that the paps back off when she is driving. Thats a responsible attitude.

Paps DO cross the line when celebrity chasing; remember Britney Spears? They're extreme stalkers, and need to restrain themselves. I hate to admit it, but I'm with Lohan on this one...
