The suspension of your license does not equal suspension of your vehicle. More likely they pulled you over for some other reason and then ran your name and discovered you had a suspended license. I'd be interested in the precise order of things as that might actually bear on your whether or not you have a case.
If they were in a small town, and the driver was known to the local officers for some reason, I could see them knowing he was suspended and then pulling him over. In fact, that happens a lot.

In a larger town, I would guess there was some other circumstance.

Or they could have been in one of those areas where the cops have the ALPR (Automatic License Plate Readers) on their car which reads plates and automatically runs them against data bases for warrants, stolen vehicle, and even suspended registered owners.

I'm pregnant was at a friend's house. Waiting for her kids to get off the bus. I had a stress full day. And my allergies were acting up. Which in fact made me have an asthma attack. Which my lungs where closing. My husband didn't have license. New that his child may had been at risk. If I was not rushed there. Was not close to the hospital. He took me had to leave the bus stop. Where the children still needed be picked up.but my life n the baby was on the line. So he dropped me off. Then went back for kids. Upon coming back to me he got pulled over and arrested. Any way if I have hospital documents stating. That the fetus and me could have died. If oxygen couldn't get to baby. Wouldn't still be pregnant. Will they give him a break

So why doesn't he have a license? This reminds me of my dd, who doesn't have a license or insurance, but still drives. She drives her BF car, and doesn't live with us and is almost 19. So, say she had such an emergency, and was speeding to the hospital and got pulled over? Is the cop supposed to take pity on her because she's been eligible to apply for a DL for 3+ years, and just won't do it?

Every time you drive its NOT a life-or-death emergency. For the times it is such an emergency, drive as fast as you SAFELY can. If a cop pulls you over, don't you think he will give you more of a break if you are playing by the rules? If you have a valid DL, valid insurance, your stickers and registration are all up to date, don't you think he's going to be more easy with you than someone who thinks the rules aren't for him, there's always an excuse?

Another question---why didn't you call 911 if it was so life-threatening? They could have administered oxygen immediately. Your story doesn't add up. You probably got short-of-breath due to some illegal substance and didn't want cops smelling it in the house----

So, GET A DRIVER'S LICENSE!

But you can't afford it, right? Then how do you expect to support you new child? Oh, guess some government program will pay for that, so---tell it to the judge and hope they buy your sob story. See, you wanna play the game, you gotta follow the rules!

Nobody offered to let me ride with him to the hospital and after making several calls to try and find a ride, but having no luck, I drove myself out to the hospital. I made it out there okay, but when they said that he wouldn't be released until at least 8am the next morning, I ended up driving myself home. On the way home, an officer randomly pulled my plates and saw that my license was suspended and he pulled me over. I explained the circumstances and he obviously verified my story and ended up writing me a ticket and towing my vehicle but he did not arrest me. In fact, he gave me a ride home. What can I expect to happen in this situation. I have not been driving, but I did get SR22 insurance in case I can get approved for a work permit. I'm still waiting to see if my job will cover me under their insurance. What kind of jail time and fine should I expect? Will they take my license for another year? I am on probation for 9 months for the DWI. I got that along with the 2 days.

Hey, ever hear of a taxi? That's what you do when you don't have transportation or a valid license. See....Driving is a PRIVILEGE not a right!

h, you can't afford a taxi? Maybe you should have saved some of your money, its called an emergency fund......strange idea
