License Suspensions: Part One of a Three Part Series

Did you ever stop and think how important your driver’s license is to you? Did you ever think about how your job, family and everyday living would be affected if your license was suspended? Most, if not all, of us are absolutely dependent on our ability to drive.

There are numerous reasons why a license might be suspended. Some are related to specific driving offenses, while others may be due to a violation of specific Pennsylvania laws. Some of the most common reasons include DUI convictions, excessive moving violations, driving without insurance or without a license, and even failure to stop for a bus.

However, there are numerous other reasons a person’s license might be suspended, including how they treat receipt of a ticket from the court. Suspensions can occur either through non-attentiveness after receipt of a ticket, or, to the contrary, being ultra-attentive and responsive upon receipt of the ticket. What do we mean? As part of a three part series, stay tuned for next week’s blog detailing the danger of non-attentiveness after receipt of a ticket.
