The problem is i've been sick and been using vicks vapor rub and cough medicine the night before. I tried starting my car up early in the morning and got a fail violation on my baiid? Does medicine really effect the device?
Probably
My duis were within a year of each other so I know my chances are slim but I was wondering if you could still obtain a hardship license or something similar? I'm going through all the necessary steps such as the classes, therapy, etc. and nothing has been decided in my case yet as it has kept getting extended. Please,any advice will help! I am 21 and I pay for my own education and I NEED to be able to get to work
Not with a ticket pending and two duis in less than 5 years.
Almost a year, no prior issues or violations, and formal reinstatement hearing coming up soon. Drove car during brutal wind chills last week, had defrosters on full blast and missed the beep. As soon as horn started honking, I blew & car was ok. But warning said lockout in 5 days. Taking it in for service, but is this a violation that will result in an SOS letter? If so, why after just 1 missed rolling retest? The additional $75.00 does not overjoy me, but I am more concerned about answering a potential letter. Other than this incident, there are no others besides blowing insufficiently now and then. When that happens, the sample immediately after is successful every time. No fails and no other missed rolling retests - just this one. Expect a letter, how to respond?
When the letter arrives, promptly respond with your explanation. You might also wish to contact your attorney for any...
I just finally got charged for a dui after 11 months in California. I currently reside in Illinois. My letter said I have to appear in court December 15. Is it possible to push this court date back or to transfer the charges to Illinois? I have no money to fly to California and after 11 months I thought my charges would get dropped. I blew a 0.04 and also had my blood tested positive for marijuana. Also, a week after my arrest my license was reinstated Because my alcohol levels were under legal limit.
As California has jurisdiction over the matter, you should ask this question of the California attorneys.
I was fined for a dui eighteen months ago. I was unable to pay it all. The town where I got the dui went to court to revoke my probation one month before it was completed. The judge filed a judgement against me for the fine and told the state not to renew my license. I'm trying to borrow money from someone but I might not be able to pay it by the judgement date. What will happen if I pay a day or a few days later?
More than likely, your license will be suspended. You will only be able to get your license back if you make a down...
I got a dui and took the breathalyzer test. After I took it the police officer asked if I would take a drug test at the hospital because he didn't think it was from alcohol. I said yes so he called the ambulance and they took me. I ended up being admitted for health issues. The police left the tickets with me and left. The next morning he called my brother to tell him how bad he felt because the drug test came back negative. I still have to go to court but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to drive.The dui was almost two months ago. I haven't received anything in the mail about it.
Call the BMV and ask them about the status of your license. Also, you may be able to check on their website. You should...
Accident occurred in March. No tickets issued. Over three months later, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, and improper lane usage tickets issued. Now seven months later, taking about charging with dui (marijuana). Any chance of beating it?
Not on those grounds alone, no. An attorney might be able to help you find some better grounds. If you don't have an...
