Shmira Advisory Report
Tuesday, July 8, 2008 9:30am: A Crown Heights resident driving along Parkside Avenue near the Park Circle was pulled over by an NYPD patrol car. After running the drivers information through his computer the Officer saw that the driver had a suspended license. In instances such as this the Officer would usually arrest the driver; however this was a nice and considerate Officer who simply wrote some tickets for violations and car deficiencies and allowed the driver to go without being arrested. The driver was now on Parkside Avenue with no way to get home or move his car. The driver called Shmira and a member was dispatched to drive him and his car back to his home.
If you get a ticket/summons please pay or fight it right away because if you don’t your license will be suspended and you may not know about it. If you drive with a suspended license, chances are you will not be as lucky as the person mentioned in the above story and you will get arrested. If in doubt, the Crown Heights Shmira recommends calling the DMV to make sure you don’t have a suspended license.
