Q&A - Disputing a Suspension
I need some serious help here! I am an N driver and I've sped twice in an almost two year period. Once was 110/kmph in a 90 and another time was 109kmph/ in a 90/kmph zone. Both occured in a 4 month period whilst I was driving my ,then ,17 year old friend (living on his own) to work. I was late, it was summer road conditions and I didn't want my friend to get fired.
Now I'm going to lose my job. I work 40 hours of Nightshift at a grocery store. It is myself and another guy who work the shift. He retires in January 05 2012. My Prohibition period is from Nov 16 until Febuary 16 and I HAVE to drive 15 minutes into town. I would ride my bicycle if it were summer. Oh yes, that raises the other issue of: Don't You Notify People When It Is Illegal For Them To DRIVE! I only found out about the "outstanding prohib" as the nice lady put, when I went into the government building to get a new care card and driver's license. If I hadn't "missplaced" my wallet, I would have never found out! Apparently the notification letter not to speed anymore takes longer than 4 months to arrive.
I am incredibly sorry for the rant, It's just that I am an extremely frustrated adolescent. My question is, I am well aware that 6 points = a suspended license. Is there any way I can dispute this suspension or get an exception?
