    For your typical running the stop sign, speeding, or failing to stop at a railroad crossing tickets, the color of the ticket is blue. For infractions that are severe enough for you to have your license suspended (or worse, revoked), you get a red colored ticket, as discussed here: https://radiolife.com/security/police/523/

    So, me not getting red nor anyticket of some sort sounds unusual?

    Sounds like they have some serious explaining to do if they decide to actually charge you with something. Something a lawyer could probably work with actually.

    Also, your suspension doesn't start until you actually get your red ticket. So if they DO decide to give you a red ticket, the past 2 years don't count toward your suspension time.

    Sounds like you were never ticketed and we've all been talking about a big bunch of nothing for two years.

    This is not a very satisfying ending to this saga.

    His original situation was,
    So I was escorted and driven back home and they asked my wife to sign a paper (guarantee letter) saying I am on suspicion of unlicensed driving and I would need to be back to the police station a couple more times for the investigation.
    My understanding is that the conversation has always been about whether he would get a ticket.

    After a couole of years, I realized that paper meant nothing. It was a promisory note/letter that my wife had to sign (police’ own concoction of paperwork) ensuring I will show up to the station when they call me up for “further” investogation at the time. There was not even a letter head or any number on it if I can remember.
