My driver's liscence was suspended in 2003 for DUI for 2 yrs. I did not attempt to reinstate it. This was prior to Melanie's Law
My mother is 88 and not well. She is no longer able to drive. She has MD visits she needs to go to. Is there any way for me to get my liscence reinstated at this time? I am under treatment for cancer myself & would only need to drive during daylight hours. I have no $ to install a breathelizer in my Mom's car.I have not had alcohol in almost 10 years. Please advise.
you should have been able to reinstate your license by now unless your are suspended in another state.
I filed a surcharge appeal from an auto accident and am awaiting a hearing.
In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?

If I wasn't seen driving and my breathalyzer is out of the case do I have a chance to fight?
I'm accused of dui(3rd) last one was 10 years before, I was seen arguing with a guy that says I hit his car when the police arrived and arrested me for dui. If the breathalyzer is not allowed and police never witnessed me driving do I have a fighting chance in winning???
Would have to know more facts about the case. You should speak to an attorney about your case. Best of luck!
Would the cost of appealing a CWOF for potentially faulty breathalyzer be worth it financially?
According to reports on the myfoxboston.com website, there appears to be a potential issue with some breathalyzer results due to a certain cleaning solution being used which is resulting in improper results. I agreed to a CWOF in January of this year and received unsupervised supervision and the 24D disposition which mandates the 16-week DAE program. Would it be worth it to see if my case would potentially be one of the affected cases, and if i did appeal is there a potential of losing the CWOF disposition?
Possibility. It depends on what the other facts of your case were. Was there other evidence, other than the breath test,...
