Anyone Been Stopped By The Police For Driving W/out License?

Recommended Posts

I've never taken a car for a drive because I'm completely terrified of being pulled over by the police and something bad happening.

Have you been pulled over? What happened? What did you do?

Seriously?! I always thought I would go to jail :( My dad got pulled over once and he got a court date and the judge gave him a warning. My mom got pulled over this past new years eve (at 11:45pm -_-) by college campus police and they let us go without a ticket at midnight. But I thought I could get deported or something :o

Yes that is true. Most people do not know this, but if your "illegal" and driving without a drivers i.d then you have the right to remain silent. It's law. We expect the worst, but in most cases they hand you a ticket and your on your way (shrug).

The penalties and consequences vary among states. Some consider it a crime and you can get a court citation which could lead to a judge reporting you to ICE. Other states are less strict. I think it's safer not to risk it and wait for DACA. You never know if the police officer is against immigrants.

Fl. Is something else, i was pulled over by a police and they took me to jail, i was there for like three hrs, and it was my first time being pulled over, they searched my vehicle, took me out of the car, handcuffed me and took me in, after telling the officer why i didnt have a license, his eyes got watery, it was awesome how i made him feel like s**t after he took me, then i was bail bonded by my parents, and had to go to court. It was terrible but nothing out of this world!

this was last year, and a drunk guy crashed into my old house so i had to leave, while i was going to my new home, is when i got pulled over!!!!!

God is good all the time!

enough said!!

@John89, that must have been so scary! Praise God you were able to come out. How did the court date go?? God is soo good, He never abandons us :wub:

It's so sad that Florida would put someone as innocent as us through that shame and trouble when not having a license isn't even our fault. It's literally impossible for us to get it.

Sigh...

@Phoenixbird: I'm so relieved you understand! My mom got pulled over on the 31st and I started shaking and crying, I was so scared. What happens to your mom when she gets pulled over????

They have just given her a ticket. Last time she got stopped was probably like 2 years ago and the cop was like "You know i could take you" and he told her to call someone to pick her up bc he was not gonna let her drive back it was 6am she was on her way to work , so i called my best friend and she went and got her . It's horrible i totally feel you, when it has happened she calls me and my brother to tell us they stopped her and i start crying and praying and i call my friends and tell them to pray for her so nothing happens and thank God seriously that nothing major has happened. After that,she started taking the bus to work instead to avoid any problems, i mean she still drives but you know with limits like she doesn't driving at late at night etc . When i was working i had to work one night at week and i would get out of work at 11 , she hated to pick me up bc it was far from where we live and an area with a lot of traffic and cops, sometimes my friends would pick me up but my job was far and i would get out like i told you at 11 so it was complicated , people are down to do you a favor but not all the time as much as they care you know.so whatever one night she is on her way to pick me up from work and they had a police check point in a one way lane where my mom was on so she had to stay in gas station or taco bell that was next to the street where she was with my older brother ( thank God he was there ) and they parked the car put the seats back and stayed there so the cops wouldnt see them and she called me telling me she was stuck there and we started calling people so they could go get her , bring the car, get me form work, take me home it was a mission and thank God again that , that time she didnt get pulled over she was able to fool them and after that day picking me up was pain in the butt more than twice times she would notice there was a check point when she was gonna go pick me up so she had to turn around go back home and i had to find a ride home. Its hard! A lot of people dont understand i mean they try like my friends they are all citizens and i know they kinda of understand me but not at the same level as you per say .

I almost started crying reading everything you just wrote. It is completely unfair that we have to go through all of this as if we're criminals. Instead of them going after SERIOUS criminals, they go after a mom that is trying to pick up her daughter from work. What a blessing to know that no matter how much this country/state can go after us, if God is with us- WHO can stand against us. I've been reminding myself that daily because God is really the ONLY one that protects us and is watching over and understands how unfair we have been treated.

Your comment really touched me, thank you.

I send you a internet-hug! lol :)
