Driving With A Suspended License
The loss of a driver’s license is life-changing. The simplest tasks can become challenging, if not impossible. Driving to and from work is no longer an option. Jobs that require a commercial driver’s license (CDL) are no longer an option. Frustration over not being able to drive builds. Emergency situations may arise where operating a car is paramount.
Drunk driving and traffic violations often lead to license suspension. Operating a car while the license is suspended makes an already bad situation significantly worse. You could face misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on the severity of the crime that led to the suspension and the number of prior convictions for driving after suspension.
