I have a Valid Delaware Drivers License but got a DUI in PA. Now that I have fulfilled all the penalties and paid all the fines can I drive in PA with my DE drivers license? I am commuting from DE into PA to work. PA requires an interlock device for their residents with a PA license. Delaware does not have this requirement.
If your license is valid then you should be fine to drive as long as you have met all Pennsylvania's requirements. I...
I am going to accept Recovery Court for a DUI in place of some jail time but there are requirements for outpatient treatment, probation officer and court check ins and I live two hours away. There is also a requirement to work full time so it is going to be very difficult finding a full time job with time off during the week so that I can fulfill these other obligations. Any insight would be appreciated.

They called the driver and harassed him saying my medical bills were coming close to exceeding the minimum. you see my boyfriend was the driver so I think they thought I would stop going to the dr which I needed to do for proper care. Can I get more of a settlement than the policy states for bodily injury since I will still continue to see a therapist concerning my PTSD.

My boyfriend was pulled over for allegedly running a stop sign and charged a dui 0.12. I was in the passengers seat and observed the whole thing. First of all he did stop at the stop sign. Neither of us understood why we were being pulled over. Secondly, the officer stated at least two times during the night he was in a hurry and didn't have time for this. He didn't allow us time to look for our registration and insurance which was in the car and he got impatient while I was calling for someone to pick the car up and asked me to drive it home myself with no license. He was also never read his rights and the officer didn't even know my name. He had to ask my bf for it back at the station. He wasn't given the option of a blood test and I watched him pass every one of the field sobriety tests
