Speeding – returning a license from administrative suspension: A driver who was caught driving at 183 km/hour and whose license was suspended, received his license back before the end of the suspension period.
Returning a license under administrative suspension: Among other cases, for a driver of a private car who hit a motorcyclist; for a bus driver who hit a car from behind; for a soldier who was caught speeding; and for a project manager caught speeding whose job depends on his license.
Returning a license and cancelling a suspension through a court ruling: For a senior accountant whose license was suspended after being caught speeding; for a defendant who had sold her car, the court cancelled the suspension entirely as well as the indictment against her and transferred the indictment to the car’s new owner; returning the license and cancelling the suspension through a court ruling for the owner of a company whose license was suspended at a court hearing for which he did not appear.
Serious and complex traffic accidents: A truck driver caused a serious accident, during which the truck hit 18 vehicles. The case concluded with a very short suspension and a minor fine. The truck driver returned to the wheel.
Driving under the influence: A harsh indictment was submitted against a driver accused of driving while intoxicated for the second time. The case concluded in such a way that the court avoided imposing an actual prison sentence or community service, and imposed on the defendant a short suspension which did not require him to obtain a new license.
Incarceration for traffic violations: Cancelling and preventing a prison term for a bus driver found guilty of negligent death; preventing a prison term for a driver convicted of drunk driving for the second time; preventing incarceration for a truck driver who hit 18 vehicles; and preventing incarceration for a driver who seriously injured a pedestrian at a crosswalk.
Plea bargains: A bus driver was found guilty of running over a pedestrian at a crosswalk, thereby causing the pedestrian to suffer serious injuries for which he was hospitalized for an extended period of time. A precedent-setting plea bargain was reached. The judge pointed out in his verdict the reasons why he agreed to accept the plea bargain, and noted in the ruling that the plea bargain is exceptionally lenient towards the defendant.
Returning a license suspended due to Ministry of Transport points: A senior manager in a large company had his license suspended for nine months after amassing too many points. After a thorough evaluation of the reasons for the license’s suspension according to the new point system, various requests were submitted to the court and his license was reinstated.
Returning a license suspended by the Ministry of Health – Medical Institute for Road Safety: Among others, for a driver whose license was suspended due to long-term drug use; for a driver whose license was suspended due to schizophrenia; and for a driver whose license was suspended due to serious injuries from a car accident.
Returning licenses to drivers driving without licenses: A youth drove a car without having a driver’s license. A plea bargain was reached whereby the young man will legally obtain a driver’s license and will be able to continue driving until his conscription to the army. After starting his army service, his license will be suspended for a short time.
