Marion County Adopts Local Rule for Specialized Driving Privileges

Effective January 1, 2015, courts have broad discretion to grant driving privileges to persons who are suspended for a wide variety of reasons. Specialized driving privileges can be granted to stay suspensions for five year, ten year, and lifetime habitual traffic offender suspensions; criminal conviction suspensions; and almost all administrative suspension. If your license is suspended and you live in the Indianapolis area, it is important to obtain an attorney who understands the Marion County local rules.
