RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Driving with a suspended license is a crime and could result in a felony charge, Ramapo police were reminding the public this week.
On Monday, March 21, alone police stopped several drivers for traffic-related reasons and had to arrest them for having suspended or revoked licenses.
A 30-year-old Spring Valley woman was arrested around 2:40 p.m. on a bench warrant for driving with a suspended license. Two hours later, police pulled over another motorist for having a loud exhaust on his car. The 28-year-old Mahwah, N.J., man was also charged with driving with a suspended license.
Fifteen minutes later, police stopped a speeder on Route 17, and found that the 29-year-old Monroe man -- you guessed it – had a suspended license.
Finally, at the close of the last shift, an officer who spotted a a car in Airmont that was parked facing east in the westbound traffic lane, wound up arresting the owner, a 29-year-old Brooklyn man, because he had a suspended license.
In their Facebook post, police said “more drivers than you can imagine get behind the wheel each day with suspended or revoked licenses.”
Depending on the number of suspensions, and the dates on which they were active, driving with a suspended license could lead to a felony charge, police said.
Meanwhile, in addition to the four arrests for suspended licenses, police handled a total of 105 calls on Monday, March 21, including nine medical emergencies, two fires, and seven alarm activations.
Police also investigated six accidents at the following locations: Jefferson Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue in New Square; Route 59 and Bates Drive in Monsey; and Route 59 in Airmont.
Their were no injuries involved in any of the accidents, police said.
