If the driver has been previously convicted of driving while suspended and is facing a second or additional conviction, the court WILL consider a jail term for up to six (6) months.
The court justifies the jail term by reasoning that:
- issuing a fine did not stop the driving
- a police officer told them not to drive
- a Justice of the Peace for the first conviction told them not to drive.
- the driver appears to have no respect for the law.
The court therefore may feel that all reasonable efforts have been made by the government to stop the driver driving, and the only alternative is to send the driver to jail.
