Customer Question
Customer: I just received a...
Customer: I just received a ticket for driving with a suspended license don't know how to proceed. I cannot afford it to be on my criminal record. I work a the local nuclear power plant and will lose my job.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I live in Connecticut and was pulled over for speeding on my way to work. The officer asked for license and registration and came back telling me my license was suspended. I told him I did not know that. He said that he had to have my car towed. He told me that I have to show up in court next Monday. Then he waited for the tow truck, gave me a ticket, and left.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Traffic Law Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Good evening. Did he tell you or do you know why at this time it was suspended?

He did not.
Traffic Lawyer: CriminalDefense, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Thank you. Tonight, you can try looking online, to see if you can discover the basis for the suspension and I have provided a link below. If that does not reveal anything, you need to contact them in the morning and ask and if that fails, call the clerk of court, to see. The reason for this is because you need and want to cure the reason for the suspension prior to court and appear with a valid license. If you can do this, the State may dismiss the charge, since you were without knowledge and remedied it once you found out. If they will not, then you need to decide if you want to fight this and have them show you knew it was suspended. If there is no evidence of this, you could have a defense.

But I have never had a DUI and have paid all my tickets. The only guess that I have on why it is suspended is for too many tickets.
Traffic Lawyer: CriminalDefense, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Yes, that could be a reason and if so, you should have been mailed notice of the suspension. Here is an additional link to use. Now, if that is the reason, then it is going to be based upon if they sent you notice and you were aware that your license was suspended.

If they sent me a notice, I did not receive it.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
does that mean when I go to court I plea not guilty since I had no knowledge of the suspension?
Traffic Lawyer: CriminalDefense, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Yes, you may want to do that. You can speak with the prosecutor and advise them of the situation, you were without notice and that had you known, you would not have driven. Please let me know if there is anything else, as I would be happy to respond. If not, please remember to rate my help at this time at the top of this page, prior to leaving, so I can receive the proper credit, for our time together. Thank you.
