Think about how your life would be negatively impacted if your driver’s license was suddenly taken away. How would you get to work or class? What about transporting your kids to school, getting groceries or making it to your doctor appointments? The fact is that a large percentage of Cincinnati residents drive every day and would suffer great personal and financial hardships if they were stripped of their driving privileges.
Five Reasons Why Your Ohio Driver’s License May Be Suspended or Revoked
- Drunk or drugged driving conviction
- Failing or refusing to submit to an alcohol or drug test
- Failing to pay child support
- Accumulating 12 or more points on your driving record within a 24-month timeframe
- Failing to show proof of insurance at a traffic stop or accident
Next Steps: If Your Driver’s License is Suspended or Revoked
If your driver’s license has been suspended or revoked due to one of the violations referenced above, it’s important to contact an attorney who specializes in defending against traffic violation charges. The course of action an attorney recommends depends upon the specific violation. In some cases, an administrative hearing may be requested at which an attorney will work to defend against specific traffic violation charges and fight for the reinstatement of driving privileges.
In other cases, an attorney may be able to aid in the reduction of fines and fees or file an appeal of a decision. Additionally, an attorney can assist in securing a modification of an existing driver’s license suspension, thereby allowing an individual to regain limited driving privileges to drive to work or school.
