On the last week of April I was pulled over for having expired tags (my birthday was April 12th). I told the officer that I honestly believed that I had until the end of the month of April to get them taken care of and was going to get new ones on the 30th, when I got paid. He informed me that I was incorrect, but did not ticket me for having expired tags.
What I did get a ticket for was having the incorrect address on my driverís license. I lived at different address for about a year and when I got my DL renewed last year, I got the new address on there. I moved back in with my parents and didnít even think anything of it, because I honestly did not remember that I had gotten it changed. When he asked if the address on my DL was correct I told him yes, but when he read it back to me I realized that no it in fact wasnít and gave him my right address. I had no idea that having the wrong address on my DL was considered a crime, but either way I wasnít going to lie to him. I told him that I moved around a year ago, maybe. So he gives me my ticket and instead of giving me any fees he assigns me a court date. I went the same day that I received the ticket and got my tags renewed and my address changed on my DL and registration. In Florida having the wrong address on your DL is considered a second degree misdemeanor. Iím just wondering what Iím going to end up getting when I go to court? Iíve never been in any kind of trouble with the law before and have only ever had one traffic ticket when I was seventeen. I know that Iíll have to pay court fees, etc. But Iím just wondering if thereís anything else Iíll end up having done Ė suspended DL or anything of that nature.
