Having your License Suspended is a real nuisance. How are you supposed to function in society on a day to day basis without transportation? This is precisely why the majority of people who have their license suspended continue to drive, in spite of their suspension. Unfortunately, neither the police officer who pulls you over nor the judge who you appear before in court will have any sympathy for your otherwise fairly rational “but I needed to drive because…” excuse. As a first time offender, you will be facing $500 in fines and up to an additional 6 months suspension. Subsequent offenses may yield larger fines, as well as even more suspension time, and certain situations may result in statutorily enhanced sentences.
While everyone appreciates the sense of freedom that comes with driving a car, it is also a privilege that can easily be taken away. Individuals can have their driver’s license suspended for a number of violations, including failure to pay a fine, accumulating points on your license, number of accidents or driving while impaired; this issue, however, can be compounded further. Driving with a suspended license in Trenton is a serious offense, sometimes carrying heavy fines and possible jail time. It is also incredibly inconvenient to lose your license for an even further extended amount of time because it can negatively impact your personal and professional life.
