Utah Attorney for Driving On A Suspended or Revoked License
Driver License Offenses
There are a multitude of reasons why one can lose his license. In the criminal world a conviction for possession of marijuana or other controlled substances can result in a license suspension for six months. A Utah DUI conviction can result in a 120 day suspension and in some cases up to two years. Other instances which may result in a license suspension is getting too many points from speeding, reckless driving, and other minor offenses added up over time.
The problem is that in our society one must have a driver’s license. Utah’s public transportation system simply does not have the ability to provide the needs of the typical citizen. Without a license you will be placed between a rock and a hard place. You can either try to get around without a car, which is next to impossible, or you can drive to work, school, and the grocery store but run the risk of going to jail for it.
Another problem is that once you have lost your license and you get caught driving without it, the chances are that you will lose your license for even longer. It becomes a cycle that is difficult to exit. Further, the more times you appear before a judge for this type of offense the more likely it becomes that you will actually serve jail time.
