The RMV makes reference to the license or right to operate a motor vehicle as a “privilege”. If that is indeed so, it is certainly one of the most important “privileges” we enjoy as citizens, and one that is critical to our lives and livelihoods. These days, the laws are structured so that there are countless ways in which the RMV can suspend or revoke your “privilege” to drive (drug convictions, failure to pay child support, unpaid tickets, driving record, out-of-state convictions and court defaults are just a few examples). If you’ve been denied relief by a “hearing officer” at the RMV, that does not have to be the end of the process, as you have appeal rights which are important and can often result in success. Northampton Law will keep you on the road, or get you back on the road, so that your life is not constrained by a government agency that has a lot of discretionary power!
Finally, if you are found “responsible” and end up paying any ticket (“moving violation”) other than a parking fine, that too could impact both your driver’s license and your auto insurance rate(s). If you get a ticket, call us immediately so that we can explain the appeal procedure, as well as assess you’re chances of “beating the ticket” – if you choose to be represented, our capable attorneys will maximize your chances of keeping your driving record clean and avoiding expensive insurance surcharges.
