Is Colorado DWAI (lesser offense than DUI) recognized by other states? Particularly interested in WA/OR.
DWAI in Colorado does not seem to have counterparts in other states. It is for BAC of 0.05 to 0.08. Most (all?) states have a 0.08 cutoff for DUI. I am particularly interested if Washington and Oregon will recognize this DWAI if I get a license there.
I would have to know exactly what second code you'd plead to, but you're right, for most states the cut off is .08 but...
I was cleaning up my car Sunday at noon after a rain storm. Admittedly I was home drinking and playing cards Saturday night.
I have an interlock device I am NO LONGER on probation I had not had a drink in many hours I engaged my ignition to roll up windows and was asked to BLOW As I had not drank since well into the night before I thought nothing of it I got my first violation in 19 months of a 24 month interlock install At present do not know the number I blew I have a few weeks before my download/calibration when the DMV will get the report Can I be charged with a second DUI? This will for sure mean jail time (probably pretty serious time this time) Any thoughts? Concerned in Colorado
This is not a personal injury question. I will change your category for you so that attorneys that are familiar with...
Court date 11-4-15 will not be getting my blood test results before then. Also I live in Michigan, how do I go about this?
Took a blood test for alcohol and drugs on 9-20-15, called chematox and they said it takes 6-8 weeks because drugs were involved. I have court on the fourth of November. Also I live in Michigan so what should I do regarding my first court date and traveling and such..
I would contact a local DUI attorney to help you navigate your case. An attorney will be able to file a request with...
Can you request a hearing with the DMV in Colorado to request your reinstatement requirements be dropped?
My DUI was in 2006. I need a drivers license for job hunting purposes but do not own a vehicle, nor plan to anytime soon. For reinstatement, I am required to have an SR22 and an ignition interlock, but again, I have no vehicle. I was also told the DMV would revoke these reinstatement requirement after 10 years, and I would then be eligible for reinstatement; is this true?
That is unlikely to happen, but I would contact them and explain to them and see what happens.
Will my recent issue violate the terms of my DWAI probation agreement??
On March 15th i had a BAC of 0.09, my licensed was suspended. After 4 months of the courts not being able to find my blood sample, i finally plead guilty to a DWAI on September 5th and had my sentence of 180 days in jail suspended via first time offender and DWAI probation for 9 months. On September 25th in an emergency, i was involved in an non violent accident infront of my house. The police were called the accident reported, so i was charged with driving while license suspended and careless driving. My new court date is set for November 6th. Will this accident clearly violate my DWAI probation?? and regardless, can the sentence be reduced in anyway??
Usually 1 constant in probation conditions is to live a law abiding life. Unless driving was the absolute only way to...
How long have BAC blood draw test results taken in Colorado?
In your experience how long has it taken to receive blood test results in Colorado? I was arrested for a DUI and indications are that I was very near the 0.08 mark (at booking with the inaccurate breath machine it was 0.082). I had a blood sample taken and await the results. The arresting officer told me it generally takes 2 weeks to receive results but I have also heard it takes months. Would having an independent test expedite the process of reaching a plea bargain with the DA? I am hoping to find quick resolution so that I may investigate employment opportunities out of state as I am only in Colorado temporarily. I'll be represented by a public defender so may have to do some of this work on my own.
In response to your question as to how long it takes for the government to have your blood test results back is between...
Lost my license. Can I drive a tractor?
I got a dui and had my license revoked from the DMV after my hearing. I love in a small rural town. Am I able to drive a tractor to the store?
Not unless it's a push-pedal. Sorry.
