When someone loses their driving privileges by suspension, it can be an extreme hardship in their life. The person may not have any other means of getting to work or bringing their children to school. It may be tempting for those who hold a suspended license to get behind the wheel, but they often overlook the consequences of getting caught.
In New Jersey and Pennsylvania, operating a vehicle with a suspended, revoked, recalled, or expired driver’s license is a violation of the Traffic Code and will result in further penalties, including a longer suspension or revocation of driving privileges, fines, and incarceration. If you are involved in an accident while driving with a suspended, revoked, recalled, or expire driver’s license and someone is injured, you will be charged with a crime.
In addition to those penalties, those who are caught driving with a suspended, revoked, recalled, or expire driver’s license will suffer the consequences of being a convicted criminal. You may lose the ability to have criminal records expunged from your record, to vote, and to participate in military services. You might also be terminated from your job. Therefore, if you have any thoughts of driving while your driver’s license is suspended, think again.
