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+.
Get your attorney involved, you don't want technical problems getting you in trouble. Good luck.
I'm under 18 and got my first reckless driving is there any chance I won't get my licenses suspensed

There is always a chance. That said, as a juvenile, if you are convicted of a reckless, the DMV will suspend your...
On probation an had words with an off duty police officer. The next day they arrested me for assult by the time I got to the police station i was charged with reckless driving the night before
You can be charged with a crime as long as there is a basis for the charge. It doesn't matter if it is the next day.
Last year I was charged with DWI in Fairfax. The case was weak and was quickly NP'd with no motions or trial. Ever since then, though, I seem to be getting pulled over A LOT for infractions that I can only describe as BS (failure to signal 100 feet before changing lanes... etc.). In 16 years of pre-DWI driving I had been stopped maybe 3 times, each time being for something legitimate. I'vE had 5 traffic stops in the last 3 months--with none resulting in a ticket. What's going on here? When police run license plates do they see charges, convictions, or both? Will expunging the arrest help this? Moving out of state? Putting vehicle in someone else's name?
Dear Fairfax - It is quite possible that you are now the subject of "heightened scrutiny." However, none of the steps...
I was convicted of third DUI felony last year in Henrico, VA. I served jail time. Currently paying court fees/fines. I am not illegible to petition for a restricted until 3 years have passed after my conviction. I understand that I need to not get any more convictions for my benefit. When I am eligible-is a lawyer needed?
You may petition in the Circuit Court for your county (or city) of residence at the end of the three year loss. You do...
I was giving 36 months restricted eitj interlock I did it and may 2013 I got it all done. Now I still live in Virgina. I am engineer and I would like to move out of this state. I did what they say and now I'm still fighting job opportunities here. Can I move away from this state and function better. Are there any other states that fit me right. Virginia is alcohol state it owns alcohol and its unforgiving to those who play by the rule. You can say what you want to say but I always say if someone paid the price they deserve fresh start. My driver records is good now. The justice system is so wacky . Why do people that do their time can just be left alone. I bet people are so selfishe they will let 50% the population not to be able to get a job and move on instead they want them suffer?
I wish you the best of luck but you are not going to get the guidance you want here. This is not the general Assembly.
I was convicted of a DUI last July. At the time, I was granted a restricted license with the provision that I install an ignition interlock device for the first 6 months. I have not been able to afford to do so up until this point and as such have refrained from driving. Because the 6 months has now passed, do I still need to get an ignition interlock device installed to be able to drive? Also, If I were to just not drive for the rest of my license suspension will I be able to have my license reinstated in July or will they still require me to have the device installed at that point? Thank you in advance for your help.
It has to be installed and used for a minimum of six months. Unfortunately because you asked for the restricted license...
