Accident in New York allegedly caused by suspended driver

Criminal and traffic courts, in conjunction with the New York Department of Motor Vehicles, may suspend a driver’s license for certain traffic violations or for repeated offenses. The goal of a suspended license is to keep a driver who does not obey traffic laws off the roads. Motorists found to be operating a vehicle despite a suspended driver’s license could face more severe penalties for traffic offenses, as well as for unlicensed driving.

 

A man has been charged with an aggravated count of driving without a license and driving while intoxicated following an accident involving his motorcycle and two other vehicles. Law enforcement is still piecing together the details, but it is alleged that the motorcyclist caused the two separate collisions between him and the other motorists. 

At the time of the accident, the man was allegedly operating his motorcycle under a revoked driver’s license. In addition to the revocation, which was in place since 1995, the man also is reported to have four other driver’s license suspensions. The motorcyclist reportedly refused a blood alcohol content test. If it cannot be proved that he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, an attorney may be able to have the DWI charge dismissed or reduced.

 

Drivers who are accused of operating a vehicle with a suspended driver’s license may want to obtain legal representation. An attorney can address any concerns or questions you have and help you to understand your options. When the time comes, an attorney familiar with criminal and traffic laws in your area can help you go about having your driver’s license legally reinstated.
