Yes this is true. I'm just saying no matter what their reason(s) for suspending it, they may not necessarily be required to notify you. And some of you all are recommending self legal help and not going to the expense of hiring a lawyer. Well that's all fine and good if you feel you can handle it, but for me personally that would be way to risky. In my case I was cited for "failure to maintain control". Long story but interesting: two cars were racing each other, I was driving a big truck loaded with steel. I was loaded heavy in curves I was driving safe, about 50mph in a 55. They passed me doing about 60-65mph, we went another 1/4 mile or so and the one in front slammed on his brakes first then the one behind him he was racing. The one in front lived at the end of this straight stretch where he passed me. He thought he would just shoot into his driveway but at the second he started to turn cars came around the curve the opposite direction. They were maybe 60-70 feet ahead of me when they both locked up thier brakes. Big trucks don't stop as fast as little cars. I locked the brakes up and laid on the horn. I slid into the first one and the car shot off the side of the road. Then I hit the second one, the front of the truck climbed up on the car and I pushed him about 50 feet. I thought I had run clear over him. I got out of the truck, shaken and scared witless, and went to the front, the guy was passed out and I thought he was dead. Thankfully he wasn't. And thankfully the car was an old rear engine Triumph, the truck's front end climbed the car and would have run clear over it but the front axle hit the back of the engine and pushed it. The end of the story is, two cars were totaled, one person seriously injured, and despite 30 eye witness accounts from people in traffic behind me, the young upstart cop fresh out of the academy charged me with "failure to maintain control" instead of citing the drivers of the cars for "reckless driving resulting in an accident". I could have paid the $100 fine and went on my way. But I would have been pleaing guilty. Which meant marks on my driving record, my insurance going up, and assuming liability for the accident which would have given the green light to the other parties to sue me in civil court for damages and medical bills, my guilty plea would have given a judge president to award it and there would not have been much I could do to prove I was not liable after admitting that I was. I could have lost everything I own. I would have certainly lost my license and my career. (the consequences are MUCH greater when you have a CDL). I would have been "un-hirable", my life would have been over. So I borrowed money from friends and relatives, lawyered up, fought the charge in court, and after further investigation by the prosecutor the charge was dropped against me based on the prepondance of evidence. My point and the moral to this story is, your decision to get a lawyer or not should be based on the consequences this case could have on your life, future, dreams, family, career etc. if it is brought to bear against you. And not solely based in saving the money by handling it yourself. The money you'll spend on a lawyer may not compare to what is at stake if you lose. Of course you may hire a lawyer and still lose, but your chances of a favorable outcome are MUCH greater if you have counsel. BELIEVE ME! Those guys and gals know legal tricks that can save your life, and no one else will tell you about them. Plus just by virtue of hiring a lawyer, your making a statement, a gesture, that shows the court you really do believe in your stance and care about the outcome. It makes a difference. Without counsel the system would have eaten me alive. Simply by having hired my lawyer, the magistrate let me go on a PR bond, no collateral and no cash bond I had to post, and I didn't have to spend 30-90 days in jail until they could work me into court. Having a lawyer also expedited my court date. I was simply amazed at the difference in how I was treated and how my case was handled by hiring a lawyer. And nothing against my license, no insurance spikes, my driving record is clean, I have 5 companies I could take my CDL and go to work for tomorrow making good money. All because I spent about $1200.00 on a lawyer. It was more than worth it to me, so that's my advice and my opinion. But you have to asses your own situation, risks, impact on your family, and what you have to lose and make that decision for yourself. I hope this helps you in your decision and wish you the best outcome.
