Legal Answers
Q. Apparently my license is suspended for not paying a seatbelt violation ticket. Where would I go to pay this ticket?
A: You will have to go to whatever court originally handled the ticket- either the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal or the Municipal Court for the city/town who issued the ticket. Once you pay the ticket, you will then need to go to the DMV to pay the reinstatement of license fee ($151.50) to clear the suspension.
Q. I rcvd a speeding 1-10 over in RI. I have lived in RI for 18 months. My record in VA is clean. Can I qual for safe drvr?
A: Yes, you would just need to provide the court with a copy of your VA driving record, so that they can confirm that you have maintained a clean record for a total of three years between RI and VA.
Q. First speeding ticket, 10mph over speed limit. Could I request forgiveness under "good driving statute"?
A: You do not qualify for the good driving record, as you need to have had your license for at least three years to be able to use the good driving statute. However, a judge may allow you to do community service or simply pay Court costs for your first ticket, so that it does not go on your driving record or insurance. You will need to go to court to do this. Do not pay the ticket by mail.
