Silver City Law

My first and ONLY dwi of 35 years of clean driving record, paid and complied with every demand, full compliance to the letter of law. Over 7 years later, a new law in affect, they pull up an old dui, refuse my license and extorting more money from me. Holding my license hostage till I pay up AGAIN!!! Somebody has got to do something about these people and thier stupid laws! I live in a very small rural town in the middle of no where, not much traffic, trying to comply and abide by the rules. look at HUMAN circumstances! Ignition Interlocks, PLEASE! anyone can blow in them to start a vehicle, call it what it is, A SCAM and EXTORTION, I even tried to comply with that, My vehicle is a motorcycle and I am refused ignition lock. Just how far are they allowed to go with my rights, freedom!
Because driving is a prilege, one which you abused, and not a right, they can get away with a lot.
I was convicted of dwi first offense in January 2005. My license was revoked for one year but I never obtained an ignition interlock in order to have my license reinstated and it's been revoked ever since. It's been more than 9 years and I have not been convicted of another dwi/dui since. Am I able to just reinstate my license like normal since it's been so long? Thanks
No. The revocation period is a "floating" time period. It will only start when you 1) have an ignition interlock...
Trying to keep him for a month or 2 til he sees the judge won't release him til he sees a judge is that possible?

License was revoked in 2007, I want to go to DMV and get my license will an interlock be required since it has been 7 years since I have had the conviction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...
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.
