DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman with so many traffic violations that she’s considered a ”habitual offender” by the State of Florida was arrested by Delray Beach Police. Joy Silver of the 500 block of NW 77th Street in Boca Raton is prohibited from driving. But she did it anyway — only to have her car breakdown yards from a police officer.

Delray Beach Police filed this narrative of Silver’s arrest:


On 7/27/2022 at approximately 1800 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in the area of S Congress Ave and Old Germantown Rd.

After completing a traffic stop I observed a gray Mercedes hatchback, bearing Florida tag PCBV83, disabled in the left lane. From my position I could see a white female with dark hair in the driver’s seat. As I approached, two passerbys stopped to assist the driver in moving the vehicle into the left turn lane. The female I observed in control of the vehicle identified herself as Joy. She was pouring small amount of gasoline into the vehicles tank from a gas canister and stated that she was driving and just ran out of gas. I assisted the driver with that but the vehicle still did not start.

The license plate returned to the vehicle it was attached to and the registered owner was listed as Joy Silver. I obtained a photograph of Silver and it matched the female I observed in the driver seat while completing the prior stop.

According to the DHSMV return, Silver’s license was revoked as a habitual traffic offender in 2019. Silver stated that she knew of her license suspension but was uncertain of the current status, knowing that she had completed some courses. Based on the above information, probable cause does exist to arrest Joy Silver for driving on a (revoked license as a Habitual Traffic Offender pursuant to FSS 322.34 (5).


Silver was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on $3,000 bond. A court date is pending.
