Driving While Suspended
Respected Bergen County Lawyers Representing People Charged with Driving while Suspended or Revoked
A driver’s license can be suspended or revoked for a number of reasons, and the State of New Jersey does not grant hardship licenses. Therefore, thousands of people are stopped and charged with driving while suspended or revoked every year. At Aretsky Law Group, P.C., in Bergen County, New Jersey, we have significant experience helping people charged with driving without a valid license.
Effective Traffic Violations Attorneys
We understand that not being allowed to drive creates a significant hardship for many people. Our attorneys work hard to ensure that people stopped and charged with driving on a suspended or revoked license do not have the length of their suspension increased. In many cases, our clients did not realize that their driving privileges have been suspended. Some of the common causes of a driver’s license suspension or revocation include:
- Failure to pay fines or appear in court for a traffic violation
- Driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Causing an accident that results in fatalities
- Abandoning your car on a public road
- Reckless driving
- Failing to provide adequate proof of insurance coverage
- Having more than 12 points on a driver’s license
The minimum penalties for driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license include a $500 fine and an additional suspension of not more than six month. A third and subsequent offenses can result in a $1000 fine, time in county jail, and an additional suspension of not more than six month. In addition, these penalties can be enhanced for a variety of reasons. We strive to help people minimize the impact of traffic violations, whether they involve speeding, reckless driving, or driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
