Driving With A Suspended License Can Have Serious Consequences
If you’re like most people in Ohio and throughout the country, you need to drive — to work, to pick up your kids from school, to undertake everyday tasks like going to the grocery store and post office. But if you’ve been charged with OVI/DUI, accumulated too many points on your license or been hit with other traffic violations, your license may be suspended or revoked. If you decide to get behind the wheel with a suspended or revoked license and are stopped by the police, you could face serious penalties.
At Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law, we are committed to protecting you from the potential ramifications of driving with a suspended license in Ohio. For more than 30 years, we have advocated for motorists in situations similar to yours. We will apply our years of experience and legal skills in traffic violation matters to help you navigate traffic court, while seeking to restore your driving privileges.
Driver’s Licenses Can Be Suspended For A Variety Of Reasons
If your license was suspended, you are not legally allowed to drive anywhere, unless the court grants you special permission to drive in a limited capacity, such as to and from work. This is a serious matter that can significantly — and negatively — impact your life.
Your driver’s license can be suspended for any number of reasons, including:
- Being charged with or convicted of DUI/OVI or reckless driving
- Accumulating 12 points or more on your license in a two-year period
- Failing to maintain valid insurance on your vehicle
- Failing to maintain child support payments
Let Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law put our years of experience to work for you. We will work diligently to get the charges against you dismissed or reduced. We have an extensive background handling both administrative-based and court-ordered suspensions.
Driving With A Suspended License Is Punishable With Stiff Penalties
If you are caught driving with a suspended license, you may be facing first-degree misdemeanor charges. This can be punishable with stiff penalties, including jail time, $1,000 in fines and the threat of losing your license for an additional suspension.
At Robert R. Hart, Jr., Attorney at Law, we will act quickly to help you respond with a strong suspended license defense strategy. Our top priority is to mitigate any potential penalties. We know how to navigate through the bureaucratic maze that is the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and take every measure possible to restore your driving privileges.
