Los Angeles, CA, Oct. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Los Angeles traffic ticket attorney, Mr. Ticket, warns California drivers about the consequences of driving on a suspended license. In California, driving is considered a privilege rather than a right. This privilege can be suspended or revoked under certain circumstances.
According to California Vehicle Code 14601, those who drive after they have received notice that their driver's licenses have been suspended are breaking the law. A suspension or revocation of a license may be issued for drivers who have too many points and are declared negligent operators, those who have mental or physical disabilities that interfere with their ability to drive safely and those who have convictions for driving under the influence. The license is not necessarily reinstated automatically after the suspension or revocation ends. Drivers must take specific steps to apply for a new license. An experienced suspended license lawyer in Los Angeles can provide essential information and assistance as drivers seek to regain their licenses after a suspension or revocation.
Driving on a suspended license can be considered a misdemeanor crime. Those who are convicted of violating this vehicle code may be facing substantial fines and jail time. The penalty may vary based on the reason for the suspension or revocation of the driver's license and the operator's knowledge of the suspension or revocation.
A first time conviction for non-DUI offenses can include fines of up to $1,000 and between five days and six months of jail time. A second offense can include fines of up to $2,000 and jail time that can range between 10 days and one year. DUI-related offenses include much harsher penalties. Fines and jail time can be much greater, and the offender may be required to use an interlock mechanism in his or her vehicle for monitoring purposes.
