Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Driving is a privilege -- not a constitutional right -- so yes, you can be charged with driving while your license is suspended....which usually carries a fine and an extension of your license suspension.
Driving and traveling are two different things.....you can travel without being behind the wheel.
There is a "freedom of movement" in the constitution, which most courts have declared to be a right to travel.....but that is subject to restrictions issued by courts for criminal actions of citizens. Here's a good link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_movement_under_United_States_law
If you are illegally driving (driving after your privileges have been suspended), then you're in violation of the suspension issued by the court....which is a new and separate offense.
If you are not behind the wheel, then there should be no infraction/offense. But, if you're behind the wheel, it is grounds for another citation..
