If you are driving with a suspended license you are giving the police probable cause to pull you over even if you do not commit any traffic infractions. Drivers License suspension and revocation allows cops to run your license plate to see if you have any warrants, valid registration and a valid license. If they see that the registered owner of the vehicle has a suspended license and you look similar to the owner of the vehicle they can pull you over.
This can lead to an arrest for driving with a suspended license and can also give the officer probable cause to search your car if they smell the odor of cannabis or conduct a DUI investigation if they smell the odor of alcohol.
