DMV now Suspending Driving Privileges of those Accused of Using a Fake IDs to Enter Bars

Based on recent sting operations coordinated at bars in the Buffalo area, NYS Troopers have been arresting those under 21 who present "fake" or "chalked" IDs to attempt and enter bars and night clubs. Most individuals, many of whom are college students, are generally issued appearance tickets for a traffic infraction under NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 509-6. Upon arrival at Court, this is normally reduced to a parking or jay walking ticket. However, several weeks after the arrest, the defendants are receiving a letter from a DMV Investigator calling them to either schedule a DMV Hearing at which their licenses may be revoked for up to a year, or accepting a plea to a 90 day suspension of their license with a Conditional License being granted to drive to work, school, and medical appointments. This can have serious ramifications on your licensure going forward, especially if you have prior incidents of suspension or revocation.


If this happens to you or your child, you should seek advice from an attorney experienced in DMV matters and the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law.
