Anderson, III, PLLC to get the answers you need.
Crimes That Can Lead to Drivers License Suspension
In cases where the court doubts the individual’s ability or intention to not drink, an order may be made to install an ignition interlock system in the offender’s car or truck. Once this system is installed, you may not drive a vehicle without an ignition interlock device installed. If you try to get around the system or drive a vehicle without the installed system, your license will be revoked for a year or more.
The offender is responsible for all the costs and upkeep of the device. If you drive for a living, your employer must pay to have your vehicle or vehicles customized. Many employers consider the cost and hassle and will terminate you instead.
Juvenile crimes also frequently result in license suspense, especially when those charges involve possession of drugs or alcohol.
Many crimes can also result in your loss of license indirectly. Some crimes mandate the imposition of points against your license. In many states, amassing a certain number of points against your license results in a mandatory suspension.
Driving Without A License
Sometimes people with revoked or suspended Utah licenses decide to drive anyway. When you get caught doing so, you face a legal battle with the courts and the Utah Driver’s License Division. There are protocols and regulations specific to each side of this fight, so if you face such a battle, make sure you go into it with an experienced and knowledgeable Salt Lake City DUI attorney like Carl N.
