Victim Suspended As A Habitual Traffic Offender Appeals And Wins
John H* came to me from Worcester and had been suspended as a Habitual Traffic Offender and also had an Immediate Threat Suspension. His license had already been suspended for two years. John kept getting suspension letters from the Registry and had finally decided he was going to do something about it.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles had sent John both a four year license suspension and an indefinite license suspension letter. John for a couple of years assumed the Registry had acted properly. What bothered John the most was that prior to two bad accidents he had never been pulled over or received any motor vehicle ticket. That's when John called me.
John and I reviewed his driving recorded. I said “No, you're crazy – the Habitual Traffic Suspension was illegal!” And, I told him, it sounded like we had a great appeal to take to the Division of Insurance Board of Appeals.
At the Board I argued that John had no prior motor vehicle law violations and that he had resolved all of the offenses on the same day. Even though the offenses occurred on different dates, John resolved all his cases together. I won't say that this happens everyday but the Habitual Traffic Offender Law actually helped John. The Registry had failed to properly treat some of these offenses as just one offense.
In a nice twist (not uncommon at the Board) the Board of Appeal Member's picked up on my argument very quickly, they turned to the Registry and could not understand why John had been treated the way he was. John for two years suffered the consequences of a license suspension that was improper.
In just a week we received the Board of Appeals decision – John's license is no longer suspended!
