Woman pulled over with expired license, but technology saves the day

Posted: Updated:
NORTH READING, Mass. (WHDH) - Lisa Gorgenyi was driving through North Reading when she was pulled over for speeding, what she didn’t know was that her license was also expired.

Driving with an expired license is an arrestable offense in Massachusetts, but thanks to a nice police officer and her smart phone she was able to leave without getting cuffed.

“He said 'let's see if we can get this done online.' Right there in middle of getting pulled over we renewed my license on my smart phone,” Gorgenyi said.

Gorgenyi said she's used to getting renewal notices and had no idea her license had run its course because the RMV stopped sending notifications.

Police aren’t allowed to let a driver leave with an expired license, but thanks to modern technology she didn’t have a problem.

“If I didn't have it I would have had to call my husband or neighbor or friends to come pick me up. That would have been embarrassing,” she said.

Gorgenyi says be sure to check your license to make sure it’s not expired because if you get stopped with an expired license you might not be so lucky.
