In a situation that is quite familiar to many drivers in Delano and Barstow,
Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot says he did not know his drivers’
license was suspended until he was involved in a non-injury accident on
his way to the Buckeyes’ practice facility.
In May 2015, Mr. Elliot received a ticky-tack speeding ticket for travelling
59mph in a 55mph zone. When he allegedly failed to appear in court or
pay the fine, Franklin County officials
suspended his license and blocked his vehicle’s registration. Neither he nor his father
were aware of either of these actions, and team officials said he would
not be disciplined.
Mr. Elliot was the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2015.
Drivers’ License Suspension
The same procedure applies in California. Ten days after a missed deadline
or court date (20 days once a new law takes effect), the state will suspend
your drivers’ license and prevent you from registering your vehicle.
The notice is mailed to your address of record, and under
VC 14601, the mailing is treated as proof that you received notice, whether the
address is valid or not.
If your license is suspended, an attorney can get reinstated, normally
within one or two business days. Furthermore, thanks to
recent rule changes, the lawyer can get the case back on the docket, where a wide range of
defenses are available.
