In Atlanta, driving on a suspended license is considered a serious offense and may lead to arrest. If you have been pulled over after a roadblock, the APD officers are likely to arrest you if they check your driver’s license and find it suspended or if you have no driver’s license at all. Atlanta is no place to drive if your license is currently suspended
Usually what happens in a suspended license is: You get a suspended license for a DUI in Atlanta, or for failing to pay a traffic ticket. Then you are found guilty of the suspended license, and it causes another suspended license. As a result, your license suspension is extended by an minimum of another 6 months. So, then each and every arrest and conviction results in a further suspension of your drivers license.
The most important thing is to stop the cycle. It’s a two-part process that takes the best legal counsel and the accused helping himself as well. Both the lawyer and the accused must work together in a suspended license case, far more than any other traffic misdemeanor.
