My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of NY:
After 1 1/2 years my son was finally able to go to court regarding a speeding ticket he received on a motorcycle when he was 19. (He is now 21). The judge did not want to hear that he had to go to work nor that he needed to be able to go to school. (He is going to be a senior in college upstate). She was ready to have him put in jail that same day, but he was instead told he was being charged with in section 510 and his license was being suspended for 6 months.
He immediately went to DMV to see if he could obtain a restricted license, they told him that until the records show his license is suspended they can't do anything.
It is now one month later he has received no notification of suspension from NY DMV and his license is still coming up as valid. In the meantime, he is not taking a chance so he is not driving. Needless to say without his working it is difficult to pay the fines and now we are worried about how he is going to get back to school in August!
His record shows no suspension, and yet we don't know what to do. Can anyone offer some advise. Now he and I are fighting because he thinks I am telling him to commit a misdameanor and all I am trying to do is get a straight answer.
