Nashville, TN asked in Traffic Tickets for Tennessee

Q: Is there a statute of limitations on traffic tickets?

My husband has tickets showing up on his license that are anywhere from 6 to 10 years old. And a majority of them arent moving violations, but his defense is suspended and remains on hold due to the tickets.

A: I recommend hiring a competent attorney in the County where most of the Citations were issued. He may be able to Move the Sessions Judge to dismiss some of them or at least execute some of the costs. Then get paid in full receipts on each offense, or certified copies of the dismissals, and take that and money to the Department of Safety to request his License be reinstated. The SOL is met when the Citation is issued within 1 year of the criminal incident.
