I recently completed a DUI class and had to pay fines to both 6th district court and the DMV. I paid the DMV but didn't have enough left over to pay 6th district. I need a state ID and know that their is a bench warrant out for not paying the fine. I need the ID to cash a check next week to get the cash for 6th. If I go into the Rhode Island DMV on Monday to get my ID will they arrest me? Is the DMV involved with warrants or they would have no idea and don't run your name?
you should call and ask before going. Get in touch with your DUI attorney and maybe he can help you.

My father in law no longer has a valid driver's license (visual impairment the eye dr. would not sign off on) and he is driving every day. His children and other family members have spoken with him about the implications and that his insurance (that he still carries) will not cover him in the event of an accident. He has also been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment. He has also been known to drive under the influence. My concern is that if he is in an accident that causes physical damage to others, that extended family members may be held liable. Can you answer this?
Whatever owner who is giving him access to the keys and the vehicle may be liable for damages he causes. So, it might...

I paid the fine on the spot, there is no court or anything. There is only a few week ban of driving here in Austria.
