Can I still be issued a DUI for an accident if I was not given a breathalyzer test or had blood drawn at the scene?
I was drinking & driving and hit another car. Another car was involved in the accident & they fled the scene as well. At the scene the cop questioned if I was drinking because he said I smelled of alcohol but I never confirmed or denied that. At no point did he ask me to run through any tests to verify this. I was allowed to be picked up and went home after the scene was cleared. No tickets were issued at the time however in my town they usually mail them home in a few weeks. With no proof of being drunk aside from smell do I have to fear being given a DUI?
Yes you could still get a DWI ticket in the mail but it does not sound like they could win it without physicals or...
Hi. I hold a temporary In-Transit PA registration which is expired. Can I drive my car ?
I hold a driver's license in NJ but I purchased a car in PA. so I got a temp. registration. I did't receive any communication from dealer or NJ DMV regarding my permanent license plates. The dealer is telling me to drive a car with the same expired registration until i get it. He tells me sometimes it takes more than 30 days to get the permanent registration. what do I do ?
I'd ask the dealer to reissue me new temporary registration. If you drive with bad registration, you'll get a ticket.
I am curious about the background check for a work visa to new zealand and weather it will show a dui from nj?
Will this disqualify me from obtaining the visa and am i permitted to say I have no criminal record?
This is essentially an immigration question. You need to either ask a immigration attorney in New Zealand or contact...
What is the likelihood of receiving a jail sentence for my fourth driving on a suspended license?
I already served 10 days in jail for my third offense. All three previous offenses occurred in the state of Va. My fourth offense occurred in Deleware.
If your offense was in the state of NJ it is pretty much guaranteed unless you have a great traffic ticket lawyer who...
Ignition Interlock - On which car, can I avoid it by not restoring the license for 6 months.
We have 2 cars. Before the incident both were under my name. The replacement of totaled was registered under spouse's name. Some time later, even second car was registered under spouse's name. After suspension of license, I removed my name from policy as authorized driver. The insurance company declined to extend coverage after policy end date. New policy has my name as authorized driver because the premium was higher if I excluded myself. I do not need to drive for work. Do I need to put the IID on both cars? Can I avoid IID by not restoring license for 6 months after suspension ends? Are there smart IIDs that will require only me to use them but not other drivers? Is there any alternate to IID like ankle bracelet? Can I buy another car for only me as driver and install IID in it? Thanks
My understanding is that you will not be restored until you show that the interlock is on a car. That car is the one...
How can I avoid being sentenced to a 16 week program from IDRC?
I got arrested for a DUI a few months ago and blew a .19 I know it was extremely high but I have quit drinking and have not drank since the arrest. I am determined make this my only offense. During the trial I was attending a detox program recognized by IDRC but the fees became ridiculous. After the trial I found a therapist who is Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor refereed from my psychiatrist who currently prescribes me anxiety medication all through my insurance so I got rid of the detox program. I have been compliant with my new LCDW. The problem is my LCDW isn't recognized by IDRC. My question is how can I avoid being sentenced to 16 week detox program?I make minimum wage and currently part time and the fines wiped me out financially. I have no problem with providing a urine test
The IDRC program will keep you out of jail. I highly recommend you find a way to go to it, and KEEP your sobriety,...
I need an expert NJ DUID attorney to work with that can take out DRE testimony. No alcohol. No illegal drugs. Please read.
I received a ARD/DUI in PA for a .03 BAC and a trace of a benzopedime (I can't even spell it correctly), that I had taken as a sample from my psychiatrist. PA Blood Test .05 BAC .well below therapeutic levels. My lawyer sent his partner, did no discovery, and didn't get case thrown out. The officer's report. and apparently so full of hole's and I learned the PA Code to where I was ready to represent myself. ADA offered ARD-done I take two medications, one for ADHD, another for anxiety. I was pulled over on NJ Turnpike at 7:30AM, tired, but by no means under the influence of anything for speeding. It was 15 degrees out and I passed each field test shivering. A DRE examined me for two hours and I passed each test. High pulse. Urine sample taken-chain of custody can be tossed, honest rx
DREs present junk science at best. Is there video in your case? Check out the lawyer profiles for someone with...
