Most traffic crimes do not involve an arrest and are punishable by a simple fine. The more severe traffic offenses, such as reckless driving, laying drag, street racing, driving on a suspended license, hit and run and no insurance, typically involve the arrest of the individual and may be punishable by more jail time, hefty fines, probation and/or community service.
Driving On A Suspended License
You may have found yourself surprisingly being arrested for driving on a suspended license. An unpaid ticket you may have forgotten about or thought had been taken care of, a mix-up with your car insurance or registration, or a child support issue may have gotten you into the position of having been treated like a criminal and having to go to court to answer to the charge of Driving on a Suspended License.
THINGS TO KNOW
- This simple charge can lead to a cycle of arrests and problems. You must deal with the charge and the underlying problem.
- The consequences of pleading guilty to the charge of driving on a suspended license can lead to further suspensions, and if this is a second or third offense, it may lead to additional jail time, excessive fines and/or probation.
