I was pulled over Saturday morning at 4 a.m. for speeding and then was arrested for a DWI after blowing 0.09
If the speed was calculated by LASER, RADAR or VASCAR, then my answer would be "NO" because Va Code 46.2-882 says in...
This friend of my husband was using our vehicle while we were on vacation & he hot a DUI causing the truck to be impounded. We were not called by the police but told the next day by the friend. His parents got our truck back. Is this going to mess up our auto insurance?
While the answer to this question varies from state to state and from one insurance to another, its unlikely that the...
In August of 2013 I was convicted of a first offense DUI with a high BAC (>0.15), as a result I was sentenced to a mandatory 5 days in jail with 55 days suspended sentence, ASAP classes and counseling, also a restricted license with a required breathalizer installed in my car for one year. I have done everything as required by the court along with paid all my fines. I've now had my breathalizer over 6 months and I've been told that I could probably petition to have it removed, I haven't had any failed tests aside from a device malfunction, also no failed drug screens or ETG tests. I have no idea how to petition this, do I need to have a lawyer do it? and if so is there any way to have my full license restored since I haven't had any violations? I know this will probably depend on the judge.

I got convicted with a DWI >0.15 in April 2013, and two days ago (one year later), I blew a fail. An hour later I passed, leading me to believe that I failed by a pretty low margin. I wasnt sure what happened and tried rinsing my mouth out, believing that it may have been caused by mouthwash...I just kept thinking did I eat something or drink something that set it off? I blew again one hour later and passed, and now Im wondering if I am going to serve more time under probation for this, especially considering I have 11 clean months with no violations.
When you say you blew a single fail, does that mean you did not give the second blow a few minutes later? The point of...
I Received a 1st time DUI conviction and was ordered to complete 6 months of having an Ignition Interlock device. Are there any penalties due finishing the six months install late, past the 12 month court date? (Besides delayed license reinstatement) I have not driven this year and I have no access to a vehicle. I've completed all the other requirements (Alcohol education classes, etc.)
The ignition interlock requirement only applies if you requested a restricted driver's license when you were convicted...
Is a BAC 0.036 very bad or the Legal limit?
No, not for a DWI/DUI. .08 is the legal limit. If you are a minor, it may cause issues or if they suspect drugs in...
