This is my first speeding ticket in like 10 yrs
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It was filed 9/26
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

How much above the limit were you going? What was the limit? What was your speed?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
He said i was going 54 at a 35 speed limit
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

You were probably given a court date. Is it possible that you failed to appear at court?

Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Or alternatively, is it possible that you failed to pay the fine?

In CA, your can have your driver's license temporarily suspended if you get a ticket, and then do not follow through with paying the fine or going to court to contest it.

No court date was given to me
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

What did your ticket tell you to do?

Ask Your Own Criminal Law Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I did a trial by declaration and paid the ticket
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

So the ticket was paid in full, and on time?

Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Did the form you received give you an indication as to what the reason was for the suspension?

Vc/200 dl suspended 10 days
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I know that if you cannot figure out why they suspended your license, and if you can't find out why on the form, you can call them at (###) ###-####to find out why. But based on what you said, usually it would be failure to pay the fine. I wonder if the payment was lost in the mail. Did you confirm that they received the payment and applied it to the right account?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i have a copy of the check
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Were the funds taken out of your bank account?

it has
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

If I were your attorney, I'd probably have to call the dmv since it's not readily apparent why they suspended your license after you paid the ticket. Any chance the funds were applied to the wrong account?

Ask Your Own Criminal Law Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I wouldnt know?
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

You would have been given a case number, and the check you gave them maybe somehow didn't get applied to your case? You would have to telephone the court to follow up and see if the funds were applied to your case. It really sounds like a mistake was made.

Ask Your Own Criminal Law Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I hope it was a mistake. You don't think by me completing a written trial declaration and paying my ticket triggered them to suspend my license. I haven't had a ticket for years.
Criminal Lawyer: AttyHeather, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I don't think so, if it was just an infraction speeding ticket.
