Driving under suspension is a serious violation

Many people do not think that driving with a suspended license is a major issue, but those caught doing so can face major penalties. Most people do not realize that there is a range of reasons that can cause a person’s license to be suspended. Some of these causes include:

  • Refusing to submit to a breathalyzer or other BAC test when requested to do so
  • Driving under the influence convictions
  • Not having insurance on a vehicle
  • Unpaid traffic tickets
  • Failing to respond to tickets
  • Failing to take driver exams
  • Not paying restoration fees after a suspension

Our Philadelphia driving under suspension lawyers often help clients who do not even realize that their license has been suspended at all. For example, if one spouse is responsible for paying bills and lets their vehicle insurance lapse, the other spouse could end up with a suspended license of the vehicle is in their name. They may not realize this has happened until they are pulled over by police for a separate violation.
