License suspension notification

There is a big problem facing many in our state. Operating after suspension is a serious charge with serious penalties. Why is it the BMV can simply mail out a notification, and you are considered notified? What happens in those instances where someone isn't notified? They get convicted. With all the things that have to be sent certified mail, how is it something that can possibly make you a felon is not required? I cant get away with telling bill collectors my check is in the mail. Why can the state?

        Maine law... Title 29, section 2482. You are considered legally notified in the state of Maine 3 days after they mail a notice out. Never mind actually getting this notice, that plays no part. I wish I could just tell people "I mailed that out in April mam" and it was law. My voice alone isn't LOUD enough. This needs to change. Certified mail is not to great an expense to protect our rights.
