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 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?
