Urine chemical tests for DWAI/DWI
I enjoy the occasional joint of marijuana here and there. I have a friend who was arrested for a DWAI - drugs when he was high driving and they urine tested him. I do not drive high, I would be too worried about something happening. I am however worried that if I am legitimately tired or suffering from allergies and the officer believes I am high. Can he then give me a urine test, which would show cannabis in your system up to 30 days? Can they actually arrest you and charge you with this based on your urine? How can they prove it was in your system at the time of driving?
They can arrest for common-law intoxication where they believe, based upon their training and experience, that you are...
Can I get my license back after dwi in ny .
.16 bac I didn't feel like I was intoxicated or close to it. I know everyone says that. I strongly believe that my gastric bypass surgery effects the test results.
Depending on the your prior record you should be eligible for either a hardship or conditional license while the case...
If a police officer lied during field sobriety tests for a suspected DUI, what can I do?
Before arresting me for a DUI, a police officer informed me that if I refused to take the breath test at the scene, I'd lose my license for one year regardless of the outcome of my case. I have since learned that this rule only applies to breath tests performed at police stations (i.e., breathalyzers). Nevertheless, I decided to consent to the one at the scene because I was afraid of losing my license for a year, though this is apparently untrue.
Hire an attorney to fight the case for you. Such information may be able to be used in the suppression of the later...
Dismissal? Video missing audio and footage which would prove the office said I made an improper right but paperwork says left
I was arrested for a DWI on November 1st of 2013 for making an improper turn. I already have an attorney but feel I may be ill informed of all possible outcomes. Also, I asked for a copy of the police video, which I received but the video has no audio, is missing footage, and the video doesn't show the sobriety test or my arrest. I did refuse a breathalyzer but that has been dismissed on the grounds that the paperwork did not state the time I refused or how in which I made an improper turn. My full driving privileges have been reinstated pending prosecution. My lawyer never obtained the full video. I told him the officer kept telling me I made an improper left but the officer kept telling me I made an improper right. His paperwork says I made a left. Could this call for a dismissal?
A spotty video will generally not result in a dismissal. If the video was requested and provided, there probably haven'...
I had my CDL license suspended for 18mo after receiving a dWAI in ny in my personal car. After 1 yr can I get a hardship? Forcdl
I will get my full license back this September but my CDL in March 2016. And can I still get it held against me for a DOT exam even though I have my CDL back. I have been getting denied jobs because my CDL is suspended even though the job is a non CDL position. Can I get a hardship after a year but before 18 months is up so I can start working again?
No you cannot get a "hardship." That would defeat the purpose of suspending your CDL privileges.
