In VA: I failed a start up test on my interlock (DUI 2nd in 5 to 10, 2nd being in 2008). Right after, it passed me.
I failed a start up test, it locked me out for 5, then retested and I passed. Got to my destination and cut car off, restarted and I passed again. I have not even had device for a month yet and now this and I have not drink anything at all with alcohol, no meds, nothing. Is this is violation and will I get interlock extended, court again, etc? This is completely nuts. I did replace mouth piece and now seems to be working fine. But I can't keep having this happen since obviously this is a false+.

1st DUI, interlock 6 months. Had one breath fail followed by passed in 5 min. Not violated. Can I petition for removal?

My job at risk my reputation is questioned. Is there I way I can still fight it knowing that the officer stopped for stopping at a green light wanting to turn but changed my mind, there was no video recordings on a dashboard to release by police.he mentioned I was straddling lanes which never happened, my friend as a passanger witnessed it. No accidents no injuries happened
No. You pled guilty. The time to worry about your reputation was before trial when considering the plea agreement and jail.
I was arrested for a DUI. Will they drug test me for anything on my court date?
It was obvious I was intoxicated, but there were no other substances in my car. I have smoked weed recently and my court date is coming up soon. I am worried that I will get drug tested and they will find marijuana in my urine on my court date.
Each jurisdiction has their own set of rules for something like this. The court on a dui charge, if convicted, would...
I have a warrant out for my arrest for failure to appear, what should I do?
The lady from asap told me I did not have to attend the court date. I'm a bit confused about what to do.
The lady from ASAP isn't the judge who decides whether you have to be there or not, so listening to her isn't the smart...
