My smart start malfunctioned and the company disconnected it. This caused my license to be suspended.
I had a DUI in Oct 2010 and another in Jan 2011 and went through a sobriety program which I finished in record time and have remained 100% sober since. I have not had one drop of alcohol in almost 3 years. One of the requirements of the program was to have an interlock device on my car. Well I was driving about a year ago and the device failed with an error message so I called the company. They told me to drive to their location, they said they had to disconnect and reconnect it and it would be fine they would just document it. However, as a result of this the Secretary of State suspended my license as a result. They believe I disconnected the Smart Start even though I have record from Smart Start that they disconnected it. My license is now suspended for another 2 years.
First I recommend that you hire an attorney. Second if you wish to handle this matter without an attorney make sure you...
What are the chances of getting your license back?
My son got a DUI in jan 2013 and was off probation in July 2014. He still has the interlock device. He is applying to the state to get his license back and the annual report from his device shows a .03 back in July. He was able to start it two days later without it being serviced. Does that mean it was a false positive? Should he even try to get his license back ? Will that be a guaranteed denial ? He doesn't care if the keep the machine in he just wants to drive where he wants and have less restrictions. He indicates he hasn't drank since his arrest. Sounds like if he is going to submit the paperwork to the state he will have to admit to drinking.
I would kindly but strongly recommend your son consult with a lawyer who handles a lot of AHS cases (used to be called...

Can I get charged with an OWI if the cops never pulled me over?
Was on my way home when some lady started riding our bumper we brake checked her a couple times but she kept at it we went to go make a left turn and she pulled in front of our car almost causing an accident and started screaming at us about a brake light going out while cursing we pulled into a friends drive way to inspect the car when all the sudden the lady pulled in behind us screaming at us saying shes calling her friends that are cops. I was out side of the car when the cops showed up and they immediately started asking questions about drinking that's when they made me blow and arrested me for owi.
Yes you can be. And you were. Even if you had a loophole (doesn't appear you do) you could at least be charged with...
I am looking to get my license back in Michigan after losing it to a DUI 7 1/2 years ago when I was 21.
I finished all my requirements for my 2 year probation including all payments during that time. I don't drink and I don't do drugs but I also don't attend AA. Being a student in debt, and a mother to one I can't afford a lawyer to represent me. I live out of state, I have the paperwork to fill out and send back to them but I will not have attended AA since the required 2 years mean they won't take my sobriety seriously? Is there a way to get advice on how to write a professional letter to the judge?
There is some serious confusion going on here and you need to get some direction. If your license was revoked by the...
I wasn't giving a ticket for drunk driving but he took my license and jailed, reported to secretary of state for refusal blow
can they still charge me for drunk driving 2, and for refusal to blow but they took blood, they told my friends that they were releasing without bail, but now my license is suspended and my plate is taken. I was giving my rights or a tickett
Absolutely. In fact it is normal for blood draw cases for them to charge you much later, often times several months....
