Inquiry:  I wanted to know if i wasn’t even driving the vehicle but yet i was on the side of the road changing a blown tire. Can the police still charge you for driving while under suspension. I was the only person in the vehicle at the time. Wasn’t on a highway either, I was drving on a back road or dirt road when the tire blew and was changing the tire when the police road up on me and ran my license.

Response:  The type of roadway that you were driving on is not relevant, however, whether or not the Prosecutor will be able to prove that you were driving the vehicle is.  We would need to review the Prosecutor’s disclosure of evidence to decide whether the matter is one that is best resolved at trial, or can be resolved without trial.  If you would like to discuss your case in more detail, we offer a no-cost initial review of cases via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
