Driving with a suspended license is against the law in California. While a license can be suspended for failing to pay fines, it can also be taken away for moving violations or dangerous behavior like driving under the influence of alcohol. If you know someone driving with a suspended license in California, it's a good idea to call and inform the authorities so that they can get the unlicensed driver off the road. In California, you can make a crime report anonymously so that you don't get into trouble.

Find your local police department on USA Cops. Click on the section of the state that you live in and you'll be offered a list of local police departments. Choose the one nearest to you and click on it. You'll be provided with the phone number.

Call the department and explain that you wish to report a crime anonymously. Provide them with the name of the driver and information about the vehicle. If you know the license number or why the license was suspended, provide this information.

Contact WeTip at 800-78-CRIME if you aren't comfortable calling the police directly. WeTip is an organization that allows you to make completely anonymous reports about crimes taking place.
