As a resident of NC around the Charlotte area in Cabarrus County, I know if am convicted of DUI and issued a "paper license" after my real license is taken away for one year, I will only have access to drive during certain hours and only for work and school for one year. I have a few questions. 1. What are the hours/days of the week I will be able to drive? 2. Will I be able to leave the state/country if I'm on a 12 month unsupervised probation? 3. Most importantly, can I drive for any other reasons beside work and school during the day? (i.e. errands, mall, movie, etc) I take care of my mom and was hoping I could run errands for her but I wasn't sure how specific/general the "driving to work and school only" really was? Any extra input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
A lot depends on whether the result of the breath or blood test was under a .15. If so, then normal hours are 6AM-8PM...
Licensed suspended in July 2013 per DWI conviction. License can be reinstated in July 2014. Looking to move to SC for a job in Winter/Spring 2015. Will I have to get SR 22 to have a license in SC, even though it wasn't required in NC?
Need to ask SC attorney. What county? More than willing to provide referral if able.
Received a DUI in CA and was convicted with a .2 BAC. Judge did not order an Ignition interlock and is not part of my Minute Order once I got my license back. I moved to a new state (judge approved) and will be applying for my license once my DUI classes are complete (again, change of classes to new state were judge approved). Will my new state's DMV uphold the CA ruling?
You have to comply with CA to get your license reinstated before you can get your license here in NC. DMV in NC may...
Heading home on 601 south after grocery store visit. Driver in front of me stood on his brakes for no reason causing groceries to go everywhere. Continued south and driver repeated his actions upsetting more items. Continued south and driver again repeated actions while I had my attention on the upset items. I struck his rear, no airbag deployed, and pulled to left to verify there were no reason for his actions. I was asked to say partial alphabet, eyes following pen, and portable breath test, and then handcuffed. First blow was .09 and second was .08. I am 60 years old, 5'10", 230 lbs. male. I feel the test is tainted because of 2 different levels and also my body fat slows the absorption of alcohol from the bloodstream.
Short answer to your question is yes. Long answer is that the likelihood of success very much depends on the individual...
I got cited for for driving 65 miles in 45 miles zone and with an expired tag. I currently have DUI on my record for the past year. Please let me know what I should do?
It makes sense to speak to experienced legal counsel without delay. Driving while impaired cases are notoriously...
I got an underage DUI at the age of 17, I was told that I couldn't use a prayer for judgement on that. While on probation still, I recently got an underage drinking ticket would it be possible to use the prayer for judgement on that?
You may not have to burn your prayer for judgment. Talk to a criminal defense attorney to see what sort of deal he can...
December of this passed year I got an underage DUI, lost my license for a year, had 24 hours community service and the alcohol classes. Last night I got a drinking ticket, while on probation. I'm 18. What should I expect?
Never 'expect' jail time. But, you need to hire an attorney. The underage drinking ticket does not put you at risk for...
