While cracking down on the use of cell phones while driving, cops have been pulling over an increasing number of drivers and checking their licenses, warns Joe Dweck, co-founder of A Better Brooklyn Blockwatch The spate of pullovers has resulted in the arrest and imprisonment of a number of community members for unpaid moving violations, or fees on their licenses. Drivers are sometimes unaware of late fees that are charged to their license for delayed payment of tickets.
Drivers can check the status of their license, free of charge, by calling the NYS Motor Vehicles Bureau during business hours at 518-474-0841.
