License Suspension Warning for 21-Year-Old Lynbrook Traffic Ticket

The DMV issued a suspension warning to a woman for failing to pay a Lynbrook traffic ticket. However, the ticket was issued in 1994 and the driver is currently a resident of California. The family believes the ticket was paid when it was issued, but says they have no recollection of the ticket and no cancelled check to prove payment. They are also questioning whether New York State has the power to suspend an out-of-state driver’s license. Keep in mind, as there is no statute of limitations for New York traffic tickets, Lynbrook is within its rights to issue this suspension warning. Should this driver get out of paying the traffic ticket? Or should it be dismissed because of its age?
