  • Driving While Suspended

    This is a 'my friend' question. Because no i'm not retarded and drive while drinking. Anyway back in April I believe he was pulled over for A) buying alcohol for minors and B) driving while way over the legal limit. He was charged with DUI and his license was suspended for 12 months. At about the 3 month mark he decided to drive (for the first time), was pulled over for broken tailight, and it was found out his license was suspended and he was arrested again.

    His question was - Are they going to suspend his license for an even longer period of time, since he was caught DWS? Thanks

      Why do people who are breaking the law make themselves stand out like an eye sore with an equipment failure. That is just stupid.

          In my county, he would get 45 days, one year added to his revokation, and possibly have his car seized.

              He will have to serve the original DUI jail time and a further suspension with additional jail time plus fine.

                He never got any jail time..other than the overnight he spent. Just had to pay some big fine and have his license suspended. Could the suspended license thing possibly get him some jail time?

                  He might have received credit for the night spent in jail and the remainder of the sentence could have been suspended. If that is the case, he might have to serve the remainder of the suspended sentence.

                  A second conviction could bring jail time and that would be served in addition to the suspended sentence.

                  In short, you

                    I have heard people who would get pulled over due to dead tags or something simple like that, and would have 100 pounds of MJ on them. What the hell are these people thinking.

                    Why not just go to the cop shop, and say this is what I got and please arrest me for it.

                      Sounds like another mental midget is alive and well. Driving while suspended is an additional and seperate charge with a hefty fine. In many cases, repeated offenses can become a 'bottomless pit". In Alabama, re-instatement costs a small fortune, and often times results in an on the spot arrest for other unpaid traffic tickets, or warrants for criminal charges. As Judge Joe Brown says, "People need to TCB". It's amazing how many don't.

                          Up here, your friend would have probably had his driving record "flagged" for impoundment, so on top of the criminal charge of Driving While Prohibited (minimum $600 Canadian fine to maximum $2000 fine PLUS 6 months gaol) I would have the authority to impound the vehicle he was driving (no matter who the owner is) for a minimum of 30 to 60 days. The vehicle could NOT be sold, the licence plates could NOT be transferred, and NOTHING could be removed from the vehicle, except what he was wearing, or a device that a physically challenged person requires to operate a vehicle, or a child safety seat.

                          Thank goodness for "clients" like this - other than if we were in Detroit (and I am VERY sorry to hear about their pending lay-offs), we should all continue to have jobs thanks to them.

                            I neglected to add, that if stopped for a violation, in Alabama, the computer shows your license revoked, that's an additional charge, plus a mandatory impound. The vehicle is impounded regardless of ownership. Our impound is not as stringent as in Canada, wish it where, but a major inconvenience anyway. We have a good thing going in Alabama, in that the Dept of Public Safety (State Police) also issues driver's licenses. When a subject applies for re-instatement,he is automatically run for wants. It never ceased to amaze me how many people simply don't take care of business, and fail to clear up outstanding warrants.traffic citations etc. Not only is their license not re -instated, but they end up in the county jail awaiting pick up by the agency wanting them. They don't get re-instated untill ALL outstanding charges are cleared up.

                              The authority for impoundment varies from Province to Province - I have no idea what other Provinces' authorities in this regard are.

                              The Police are NOT involved in issuing drivers licences in any Provinces in Canada, but here in Saskatchewan, the vast majority of driving offences (speeding, seat belt, intersection controls) can result in convictions-by-default if the "client" fails to pay the voluntary fine and then fails to attend Court. When the "client" tries to renew their licence (annually at the end of their birth month), the issuer can NOT renew same until the "client" pays up their outstanding fines. Unfortunately, this provision does NOT include outstanding fines for other Provincial Statutes (liquor, wildlife) nor Federal Statutes (drugs) or Criminal Code (theft, impaired driving, B&E), nor outstanding arrest warrants for PS, FS or CC offences.
