Suspended Driver's License Lawyer Bucks County
Most of us take the privilege of driving for granted while relying on in for a wide array of daily activities. For many of us, it is impractical to be left without the ability to drive; this usually is our means of transportation to work, school, shopping, and so many other necessities of life. The problem is that, regardless of how necessary it is for most of us to drive, there is no unqualified legal right to drive. Instead, the privilege of driving depends on our ability to demonstrate that we can drive safely.
There are several reasons why a person may have their driver's license suspended by the Department of Transportation (DOT), some of them include but are not limited to:
- Accumulation of points on your driver’s license
- Failure to Pay Court-Ordered Child Support
- Ignoring Traffic Tickets and/or Parking Violations
- Leaving the Scene of a Car Accident (” Hit and Run”)
- Drag or Street Racing
- Failure to Stop for a School Bus
- Felony convictions related to your use of a vehicle
- Conviction of a DUI
- Conviction of Homicide by vehicle
If you already have your Driver's License Suspended or are facing the possibility of a future suspension for any reason, you should reach out to Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC. With the assistance of one of our Bucks County lawyers specializing in suspended driver's license issues, it is often possible for clients to retain or regain their ability to drive. It may be possible to discredit the original charges for which the suspension was issued or through a favorable negotiation. Additionally, in cases where the suspension was issued due to excessive points accruing on your license, you may be eligible for enrollment in the Driver Improvement Program. Completing this program may reduce points to the threshold at which a suspension will no longer be issued.
Even when it is not immediately possible to avoid a suspension, it is important to minimize the suspension duration, understand the implications of your suspension, and all of your additional options, including such programs as a limited occupational license. Furthermore, at Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC, we can help you minimize or avoid the impact of any other penalties, including fines, surcharges, points, and, in some cases, jail time, due to the offense (s) which caused the license suspension.
It is crucial that, if your license has been suspended, you do not drive. While we understand that it may be immensely inconvenient and impractical for most people in Bucks County to live without driving for any considerable time, being stopped for driving with a suspended license will not only increase the original penalty, adding time to the suspension, incurring fines, but may even result in possible jail time.
