Driving children to and from school on restricted license
I was given my restricted license for a DUI, I am a single mom and there are no buses available to take my young children to school. The schools are on the same path as going to and from my work. My attorney said that it would be something to fight in court if I was pulled over as this has been my job every day for 10 1/2 years going to school to work and back to school and than home. What are your thoughts on driving my kids to school? There is no other transportation available. Also, if I was caught what happens to my restricted license and what should I say to the officer if I was pulled over?
There is cases law on restricted licenses that indicates so long as it is not too far off of the beaten path between...
How long can I expect my friend to be away immediately following 2nd DUI arrest
Friend was arrested yesterday afternoon. So I assume he'll be in front of a judge today. If he pleads 'no contest' or 'guilty' will he serve the mansatory time (I believe it's 4 days) immediately? Or will he be allowed to go home and then sentences at a later date?
Your friend can post bail and be released immediately. You should contact a bail bondsman in your area. An arrested...

Do I need an attorney? Misdemeanor during probation for DUI in CA.
Thank you for your time. I recently had my first DUI in February. It was lowered to a wet reckless and I have a three month restricted license. My restricted license ended on August 25th but I didn't realize that that was only for the restriction and that my temporary license was only good through May 28, 2014. Fast forward to September 21, 2014, I was driving on 680 N going towards Livermore when CHP pulls me over for having my original paper plates on my car (not the car I had my DUI in, i mention this because the officer asked). I realize this was a dumb move. I had the plate on me but have been lazy to put them on. So the officer cited me for VC12500 Driver Unlic Misdeamor and S200 No Plates. So my question is should I hire an attorney and what would be a fair retainer fee?

Properly Parked Vehicle Totaled by a Hit and Run Driver(later caught by police, had a DUI two hours before the incident.
On or about 7:30am, 12 March 2014, a hit and run driver damaged my car beyond repair. The hit and run driver was later caught by police. He was arrested for DUI, o/a 5:00 am, before the incident It was totaled by my insurance company. I have to spend more or less $15,000.00 to get a new car. Can I sue for loss of use, damages, exemplary damages, and for the traumatic experience and undue stress, my wife and I experienced because of the hit and run driver's fault. My CRV will still run for another 300,000 miles, and we would not spend a penny in trying to recover damages. and get a replacement car. Farmers insurance offered $4000 for a CRV valued at $7,500. It was not enough. We disputed their computation, but later accepted accepted it to purchase another CRV costing us $10,000+
Undue stress isn't going to fly but you can get compensation. Contact the DA's office and ask for victim's restitution...
CA DUI: Special restriction card from DMV states that I can "drive to and from treatment program", what does that mean?
I just received my restricted license from the CA DMV, and I was expecting the restrictions of only to/from/in the course of work, to/from school, and to/from the DUI school. However, with my temp printout, I was given a card that listed my restrictions, and one is worded as "drive to and from treatment program". I'm currently in counseling for substance abuse/depression of my own accord and I was wondering if that statement implied I could drive to/from those sessions as well. The wording seems awfully vague to me. Thanks for your help.
You might check the fine print... nothing should indicate that its ok to drive to "school". Employment and the DUI...
