in 2008 I was convicted of DUI and have not driven since. I do not own a automobile. I understand the insurance requirements. My conviction was over five years past, I was wondering if there is any grace period after such a lengthy period of time when the requirement may be forgiven.

He was never arrested. The DUI charges came almost 4 months after the incident. He went to court and received a sentence that included fines, probation, 30 days in jail, and a 5-year license suspension. He was never read his Miranda rights at any time. Is this an issue?
Well, if he was never arrested, likely Miranda wasn't an issue because Miranda is invoked at the time of detention or...
I have been charged with careless driving and a 2nd DUI, 3 months after the incident occurred. There is no court date assigned, I was told to call thd court. I didn't retain an attorney for the 1st DUI and the public defender was awful! What does a retainer cover and how much is the average retainer?
DUI is an enhanceable offense, meaning that eventually you could face felony charges for what would otherwise be a...
The person in question was non-responsive and taken to the local hospital for emergency treatment. The vehicle he was in was towed and no one was notified. The police officer that responded showed up for an initial interview at the hospital but didn't take any notes. He indicated that there would be an arrest once the hospital has cleared him to be released.

I have a 13 year clean driving record. This is my first ticket. I know I was not speeding and what to contest this in court. My ticket is for $75 for driving: "unlawful speed at 27 mph in a posted 15 mph zone. The offense charged is F.S.S 316.187. I want to know if I will get points on my license and what does this F.S.S. 316.187 code mean? The officer said he clocked me on a radar. Where can I found that information on the ticket? Also, will I have a chance getting this ticket dismissed in court? Thanks!
316.187 is the statute you are accused of violating. In this case, speeding. You could get points on your license....
I ended up leaving Georgia and moving back to Vermont without taking care of this issue, since then i found out that there is a bench warrant in the state of Georgia for me; I have not had a license since then. It is now 2014 and I have recently moved to Florida from Vermont, my Vermont ID has expired and I need to get a Florida state ID. Is there any chance of this issue surfacing at the Florida DMV while applying for a state ID and could I be arrested while doing so?
The prior DUI will most definitely "surface" at the FL DMV. It's unlikely you will be arrested, but if you have an...
I was at the club one day and I'm only a social drinker. Had two drinks that night and my friend told me to go to someone's house and they offer me to smoke something and didn't tell me what it was. So after wards I get this instant rush of a wierd feeling and he doesn't really tell me what it was. I freak out and drive away and I start hallucinating like crazy and I dial 911. I tell them that I think I'm high and I need help bc someone gave me something. They come and help me and I wake up in the hospital and was given a crash report that I hit a car. Is it possible that il get a dui for that? This was like a week ago. I'm freaked out bc I don't do drugs at all and my doctor told me my blood work for alcohol was low. So I know I wasn't drunk. need some advice.
Yes you can be charged and it is likely you will be charged based on what you have stated. You need to consult with a...
