Traffic tickets can often have relatively minor consequences, but in certain cases those same traffic tickets can have major consequences involving mandatory jail sentences. One such ticket is a violation of 1543(a) for driving with a suspended license. A first conviction usually results in a fine and an additional license suspension. But subsequent convictions can lead to jail sentences and a sixth or subsequent convictions leads to a mandatory sentence of 30 days to 6 months of incarceration.
