Plattsmouth, NE asked in Traffic Tickets for Nebraska

Q: NE. Got a notice of susp. in mail for failure to comply with traffic citation. Can I be ticketed without knowing it?

Is it possible for me to receive a ticket without knowing it? I just received a notice of suspension says in the mail and it says I received a citation on 11/22/23, but this is the first that I've heard of it?! I just went back through and checked all of my mail receipts and I have never received anything saying I had a ticket? I don't know what I was supposedly even ticketed for!! All of my registered vehicles are licensed and insured and up to date and nothing has lapsed. I haven't even driven since October because I don't like to drive in the winter, but I've never even been pulled over before. My husband always drives, but he wasn't pulled over or ticketed either. I'm just wondering how I could have been ticketed for something without even knowing I was ticketed? Could a ticket have been left somewhere other than in my mailbox, on one of my vehicles, or handed to me personally? I'm so confused how my license could get suspended without me even knowing I was ticketed? Help? Thanks

A: You can look up online to see if your license is suspended in Nebraska:

If your license does show as suspended and you still don't know why, go to the DMV and ask.

If your license isn't truly suspended, it is also possible that this is a scam.
