Even if your license is suspended can a cop pull you over saying you match the description of a suspended driver
I have a suspended license and I go to court next week for it. However I have 2 jobs and have to get to work, so I have driven myself wrong yes I know. I just got pulled over again by my job, the cop stated I matched a description of a suspended driver. This is 120am pitched black and I was not committing any crime at the time. He made me call a friend to release my car and gave me a bond paper and court date. Is this legal?
If the officer knows you are driving and your license is suspended they can stop your vehicle.
Can a dui stand if you were not driving?
I was very sick from food poisoning, I bought some liquor, found a rest area, as I tried to park, my vehicle got stuck. I began to have chest pains and shortness of breath. I called 911 sat on the ground had one drink then returned the bottle to the vehicle and lost conciseness. EMT arrived as I woke up. I was taken to the ER then placed in ICU. The next morning an Illinois State trooper came and wrote me two tickets: one for dui and the other for open container. Is this legal?
You need a traffic and DUI lawyer. They know the law, the can investigate the legality of the specifics of the ticket...
Dismissed DUI & insurance rates?
Hello, I'm looking for a lawyer to help me clear up my name in both criminal and driving records from a DUI arrest on 9/11/15. I was arrested on suspicion of DUI, refused all field sobriety tests & breathalyzer, remained silent until I made bail. Anyways long story short I lost my license for 1 year due to refusing and had to use a BAIID for 10 months (never in the 10 months did I even get a warning or a fail), i fought the case with help from a very experienced but also very expensive lawyer which resulted in a Not guilty verdict by Jury. I reinstated my License after completing the BAIID program, shortly after I acquired a new career which allows me the use of a take home personal use company vehicle so I never had a need for a personal vehicle, I recently acquired a truck from a debt owed to me and I have registered it to my name but not yet insured it, will the insurance company see my DUI arrest and/or the 1 year suspension? Haven't had any tickets or accidents since 9/11/15 but prior to that I didn't have the greatest driving history. I rather pay a lawyer to clear my name than to pay the insurance companies a premium for something I can avoid.
If this is your first dui offense and the suspension is over it will not show up on your public motor vehicle report....
How long do you have to challenge a SSS (DUI)?
Arrested for DUI 2 times. First time my attorney won the SSS hearing, then with the courts I received the 1x court supervision, which I completely successfully. I was stupid enough to do it one more time and I told my attorney all I cared about was not having jail time, so he said my license would be revoked for one year (next month will be one year); I didn't know it would be suspended for another 2 years due to not blowing on either arrest. Is there anyway around this suspension now or is it too late and I just need to suck it up?

Will I be able to try to take a AA or try to go rehab instead of getting jail time for 2 DUIs and messing up my supervision?
In June 2016 I got charged with my first DUI as a minor and got supervision for 2 years. It was suppose to be completed in December 2018, but I got charged last night with a second DUI with BAC at .167 twice the limit, still a minor. Only had 5 months left of supervision. I’m too scared for jail and I don’t want to go to jail. wondering if I would be able to possibly go into rehab or a facility for my drinking problem or do something besides getting thrown in jail.
Possibly. Try and hire a lawyer. If you cannot afford one and the state seeks jail time request a PD
