I have 1 speeding ticket, 2 failure to surrender Insurance and 1 handheld device ticket. What happened is, I got these tickets over 6 months ago in two separate incidents. Shortly thereafter, My 8 months pregnant wife went into labor. it was a very arduous and challenging labor process and both Baby and Mum were in a precarious situation at one point. Long story short, with all the turmoil in my life, I forgot about the tickets until 6 months later, I heard from my insurance company stating that my insurance was a non-renew. When I enquired why, I was told that my license was suspended.
All this time, I got absolutely zero communication from the city regarding the status of my tickets i.e. I was convicted in absentia. I filed a reopening request based on the fact that I never received any correspondence from the city and it was instantaneously denied.
At this point in time, I will have to quit my job, since it is not possible to get to my job via public transit, yet I don't think I'll be able to afford insurance given my non-renewal. I am really hoping to file an appeal and get some success, but I am clueless as to where to start.
Would anyone here be able to help me out ?
