My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Ohio
I rear ended someone because 2 cars up ahead of me they decided to make a last minute turn without a turn signal and needless to say I couldn't stop my full size duely truck in time.
The truck was in my husbands name and I was driving it without insurance and with a suspended license.
Anyhow, I paid the damages to the vehicle I hit and worked that out just fine. Now, I figured I would get hit with fees and tickets which I expected. However, I didn't expect to find out that they would suspend my husbands license for 4 months. Where is it in the law that states this?
I couldn't locate anything about suspending the owners license for 4 months when he wasn't driving or even in the vehicle.
Would it matter if he claims I had no permission driving the truck?
Also, something else that I have a question is that a very similar incident happened about 5 years ago. I was driving with a valid license, without insurance and I hydroplaned across the highway and a semi t-boned me. I paid the damages, they suspended my license (which I expected) and they NEVER suspended his license. So what has changed in the past 5 years? why didn't they suspend him then, but they did now for a similar incident?
The only difference between then and now is that: now, the insurance company put a property damage release on me and my husband which meant we had a deadline to pay the damages in full. We paid it before the deadline so therefore there shouldn't have been any license being suspended for that reason.
Please help. He needs his license for his job. I need to do whatever I can to save his job. Please help!
