The driver did not receive a ticket but the passenger was issued a ticket for an open container with a court date, will this go on their driver's record, license, or insurance ?
The answer is that it depends. The statute makes no distinction between drivers and passengers. It does, however,...

Felony DUI "Great Bodily Injury" License Suspension Issue (South Carolina)
I was convicted of Felony DUI (Great Bodily Injury) on Sept. 17, 2009. I was sentenced to 30 days house arrest and 5 years of Probation suspended on 15 years imprisonment. My probation end date is Sept. 17, 2014 and have no issues regarding probation. My main concern is my Drivers License. Per South Carolina statute a persons Drivers License can only be suspended for the time of imprisonment plus 3 years. Also in this statue it says ; " This period of incarceration shall not include any portion of a suspended sentence such as probation, parole, supervised furlough, or community supervision." I've been to the DMV and they have told me my license is suspended until 2027 and only a court order can change that. How is this possible and what are my options pursuant to South Carolina Law?
It seems as if the DMV considers the suspended sentence as controlling on them. I think you should get a local...

What will likely happen to someone who has a violation of probation in the 2nd degree for driving violations?
My fiancé had repeat driving violations due to a dwi and a driving on a suspended license. He was sentenced to probation instead of 5 years jail time. He violated by not going to probation visits and he left the state to go to the emergency room at a better hospital just inside the North Carolina border. He left seeking a better hospital due to being very sick all year (unable to keep food down, pancreatitis, tumor on his kidney). He has lost 60 lbs. in 9 months! Ultimately, he avoided his visits because he is a bad alcoholic and afraid he would be locked up for showing up drunk. What are things looking for him, as far as facing time and what would be a best case/ worse case scenario? How likely would it be for them to offer him a court ordered drug treatment program?
His chances are much better with a criminal defense attorney. No one can predict what will happen in a Court of Law....
