NYS DWI Probation and Ignition Interlock Requirement
Arrest for misd ADWi/DWI per se. No priors in 5 years (hence misdemeanor). Probation orders indicate "If Court and Probation give permission to drive, the interlock must be installed on vehicles owned or operated". Further in Probation Orders are "Conditions of Ignition Interlock". Is it correct to interpret the orders that the interlock is required ONLY if they Court and Probation give the defendant permission to drive? His license is revoked and he received a notice from NYS DMV he is not eligible for a Conditional License so neither can legally give permission. Both are trying to say if defendant doesn't get IID installed on 3 vehicles in the household (none owned by him), he is in violation (already served max jail sentence of 1 year). Is he in violation? What may happen if so?
I believe that interlock is statutorily required if you are convicted of dui.

Is there a statute of limitations in NY for unpaid fines?
My friend received a driver license suspension notice in the mail. He went to Town Court to find out why. Apparently this is from 2001. He got a DWI, was on probation, failed to pay his fine, spent weekends in jail. They revoked his license back then. He got license back in 2005. Why was this not found back then? He would not have been let off probation without paying his fine. He has nothing to prove he paid it back then. Should he speak with a lawyer?
Greetings: There is no statute of limitations. Your friend should consider speaking with a lawyer. I would start...

Can a person who is currently on TASC after a DWI go away on a week vacation?
Last year, my boyfriend was pulled over for driving under the influence of alcohol. The court referred him to TASC, but he was unable to attend the interview due to his newly obtained job. After months of back and forth to court, the notion of probation was introduced. The judge was nice to re-offer TASC as an alternative to probation if the program allowed him to be reinstated. The interview with TASC has now been set up for this upcoming week. Now, over the last couple of months, we planned week trip to the Caribbean. I would like to know if going on vacation is acceptable since it was booked and planned before we knew anything was going to happen. Does anyone have any suggestions on what steps should be taken and whether TASC allows circumstances of this sort. Thank you in advance.
If the vacation will interfere with doing TASC I suggest you reschedule the vacation. Don't forget that TASC is an...
