RIGHT OF THE USER – By not going to retrieve the registered letter containing the order suspending the driving license following a violation of the highway code, can one continue to drive legally?
By refusing to retrieve the registered letter containing the driver’s license suspension order, could the offender continue to drive legally? It’s time to finally put an end to this nonsense for the following reasons:
1. The absence of receipt of the registered letter will not easily allow the offender to know the period of suspension of your driving licence;
2. The offender will encounter the worst difficulties in formalizing his administrative procedures to recover the driving license which require the production of the suspension order to the authorities;
3. In the absence of a suspension order, he cannot take any legal action to request the suspension of the prefectural decision;
4. And above all, it has already been judged that the absence of receipt of the registered letter still constitutes notification of the suspension decision. The Court of Cassation has in fact ruled that the motorist who refuses the registered letter or who does not collect it from the Post Office within the time limit (15 days) is considered to be covered by the measure on the day of presentation of the letter by the postman (Court of Cassation, June 4, 2013, appeal no. 12-86877). He therefore commits an offense by driving despite the suspension of his driving license even though he claims not to have received the mail.
The policy of the ostrich is therefore useless and the “miracle solutions” do not exist!
