Of course I get a call on the day after my ticket was due and I paid it and all. The police station... Read more »

I was involved in an accident and I plead guilty to the accident and paid my fines. Now I have recieved a notice about a suspension of my license. I have to drive for a living, is there anything I can do? I really am not sure why it is being suspended.
The location was presumed within the barricade. I lost the ride and evidence attached when the ride was switched on me. Did I actually do anything illegal? And what are my options?
