Drivers in the state of New York can find themselves faced with a variety of fines being assessed or points added to their driving record all too easily. A parking ticket fine that was inadvertently overlooked, for example, can end up causing more serious problems down the road. In other situations, there may be more serious offenses that lead to the revocation of driving privileges. No matter the reason, driving with a suspended driver’s license itself can only add to the complications if such action is found.
A 35-year old New York man has found himself in such a situation recently. His driver’s license was suspended in May of 2013 after he failed to pay a $100 fine to the Department of Motor Vehicles that was levied against him. The fine was the result of sufficient traffic violations that amassed into six points on his license over an 18-month period. Two days before Christmas, the man hit a cab and was arrested for driving with a suspended license.
Less than one week later, the man was yet again arrested for driving with a suspended license. In this most recent episode, an Isuzu hit a car driven by a 32-year old woman and pushed her car into the path of a BMW which then also struck her. The woman died at the scene of the accident. The BMW was being driven by the man with the suspended license and he was arrested for the second time in a week.
If you have points on your license, a suspended driver’s license or other related concerns, it may be helpful for you to talk to a lawyer. In some cases, an attorney may be able to help you get back on your feet and avoid bigger problems down the road.
