I got a letter from the Mass RMV that I have had 5 surchargeable
events while driving in the past 3 years. I had some question about
the things they had listed:
1. Two Offenses are on the same date, and one of them is listed as a
surchargeable Accident and the other as a St. Hway Violation. I'm
positive that I did not have two separate incidents on one day. So it
essentially means that I'm getting two incidents for one. Obviously if
I was at fault for an accident I must've done something wrong but I
should not be doubly punished for it.
2. One of the tickets was for an accident more than 3 years ago (Jan
01 2001). But the conviction date for some reason was listed as more
than a year later (Feb 2002). And Massachusetts happens to calculate 3
year periods in regard to conviction dates. This seem rather strange
to me and almost looks like a scam.
3. Also, the incident i mentioned in my previous point was on an
International License, when I had just come to this country. I had a
Mass ID then (with the same number as my current license) but not a
Mass License. So it shouldn't count towards incidents that could
cancel my current license!
Please advise me what to do, since my hearing date is fast
approaching. I would appreciate any help on this.
