Driver’s license suspension can sneak up for a variety of reasons. The consequences could stem from traffic violations, unpaid fines, or even DUI charges. While the length of suspension varies, the severity of the violation often determines the outcome. For countless Florida residents, daily life hinges on the ability to drive to work, school, and other vital commitments. It’s easy to be tempted to continue driving with a suspended license, but that only invites harsher penalties. However, remember that a suspended license doesn’t equate to a dead-end situation. In certain scenarios, you can overturn or prevent the suspension.
