I was pulled over Saturday morning at 4 a.m. for speeding and then was arrested for a DWI after blowing 0.09
If the speed was calculated by LASER, RADAR or VASCAR, then my answer would be "NO" because Va Code 46.2-882 says in...
This friend of my husband was using our vehicle while we were on vacation & he hot a DUI causing the truck to be impounded. We were not called by the police but told the next day by the friend. His parents got our truck back. Is this going to mess up our auto insurance?
