There are many reasons that a person would have their drivers license suspended and if you find yourself in this situation, it is important that you comply with what law enforcement rules. If you fail to do so and make the decision to drive anyway, you may be facing severe consequences. Driving with a suspended license can be serious. It can be a criminal offense or it can be charged as a felony. Sometimes people, because they receive the charge as a summons, think that driving with a suspended license, or aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, in New York is not serious. However, it is a remarkably serious ticket. Some types of aggravated and unlicensed operation, or driving with a suspended license, can lead to mandatory jail time and/or probation. If you receive a summons for aggravated unlicensed operation, it is very important that you call a New York criminal attorney immediately, one who is experienced in dealing with those types of summonses.
