The client was driving her car after work and crossed over marked lanes and crashed into a tree on the other side of the road. When police responded, the client could not explain how the accident happened. The police suspended the client’s driver’s license without a hearing as an immediate threat. Under the law, if the Registrar determines that you pose an immediate threat to public safety because you have a medical condition which hinders your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely, the Registrar can suspend your learner’s permit, driver’s license, vehicle registration, or right to operate immediately for an indefinite period. The officer determined that the client posed an immediate threat to public safety because she believed the client had a medical condition which hindered her ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. Attorney Topazio petitioned the registrar to lift the immediate threat by establishing through medical documentation that his client was medically fit to drive and proved that continuing operation by his client would not constitute an immediate threat to public safety. The Registrar agreed and terminated the immediate threat and immediately activated his client’s driver’s license.
