Odds of successfully contesting New Mexico Law requiring Ignition Interlock for prior DUI/DWI "conviction" Statute 66-5-5e.
Had a 1st offense DUI in PA back in 2007. Accepted into and completed ARD, (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition), program where the charges are dismissed without a "conviction" or admission of guilt. Arrest record is expunged and only record of violation is on PENNDOT records for enhancing a later DUI charge. There was NO CONVICTION. Moved to NM. MVD said only eligible for interlock license under statute 66-5-5e. It states "(person) who was CONVICTED on or after June 17, 2005 of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs pursuant to the laws or ordinances of any other state". I plan to challenge the NM MVD because I was NOT convicted of DUI under PA state law. Penndot will send a letter stating that there was NO conviction. Thoughts?
I think.... That it will cost you more money, heartache and misery to fight this than it would be just to get the IID.
I had a DWI driver at 2:30 am that damaged my property, and vehicle (no injuries to myself or family). Now his insurance company does not want to pay me the estimate amount I received for the property damage work. Adjuster says that the estimates are too high. I want to tell the adjuster that when the Police knock on your door at 3;00 am, and you have older children, that your mind wonders if they are injured or dead. I do not like to sue, but if the company keeps messing around for $1,500.00 I will have to make them spend a lot more in Court costs. Is this something that can be pursued in the Court?
Absolutely No Point. Contact the DA who is prosecuting the DUI driver and turn your damages over to him. The judge...

Will depend on what the blood test revels with respect to RX drugs in your system. Please feel free to retain a AVVO...
Do you have to put an ignition interlock if you were convicted of a DUI in NM in 2007 and your license has been revoked
License was revoked in 2007, I want to go to DMV and get my license will an interlock be required since it has been 7 years since I have had the conviction
Your best place to ask this would be at the NM DMV. Generally you cannot just wait out an IID requirement but there may...

My husband and I were involved in a car accident on September 2013. The person who struck us was drunk. Our accident was disastrous, we rolled over and my husband held severe injuries to his head. To this date he is recuperating but the doctors do not know if his symptoms will ever go away (dizziness, headaches, blurred vision). The DA charged the drunk driver with 3 counts of great bodily harm (there were 2 other passengers in our vehicle). Can my husband, given the severity of the accident, qualify for the U-Visa? If so, have there been cases of other people who were victims of DUI like my husband, who gave been granted the U-Visa? Please help – Thank you!
I have not heard of anyone getting a U-visa from a DWI. The closes crime requirement that matches with this...
