New York Motor Vehicle Laws
By: Undisputed Legal/Court Service Department
It is a criminal violation to drive while your license is suspended or revoked, and there are mandatory fines from $200 to $5,000. You can face mandatory imprisonment or probation. The vehicle being driven could be seized and forfeited. More severe penalties apply to drivers who drive while intoxicated or impaired by alcohol or drugs while their license or privilege is already under suspension or revocation for previous alcohol or drug-related incident. Drivers with 10 or more suspensions for failure to answer traffic tickets or pay fines are also subject to severe penalties. Drivers with 20 or more suspensions for failure to answer tickets or pay fines face a criminal charge, even if you were not driving when arrested.
