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.

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...

I was pulled over for a dui and I was wondering if I will go to jail?
Hello I was pulled over for dui and I blew a .15 I was taken to jail for the night and now out on bond for $100. It is my first offense I am about graduate college early and I have never been involved with the law my entire life. I'm so scared to go back to jail ever again. Would it help my situation if I started to go to AA meetings and alcohol and driving classes before I even go to court? I want to be as pro active as I can so any help would be amazing
That may help, depending on a variety of factors, and whether there was an accident involved, and whether any one was...
Can a male jams worker watch you while your taking your etg as a female?
I just switched to another jams location and at my previous location if there was no female the male would let me close the door. I went to the new location and there was a male and female, the male offered to take me back and watch while I tested and the female said she would. I felt very uncomfortable to say the least. A friend told me he has done this before to his friend. Is it legal for him to force me to test in front of him if there's no female? I'm afraid he will fail me if I say no.

My daughter got an oui, hasn't gone to court, but got her licence back in the mail, is this normal?
Is it typical that she did not have to be bailed out? Also the ticket has the completely wrong car, plate and VIN #, can this change anything?
It sounds like she needs to speak with an attorney right away. It is unusual to have the photo license (unclipped)...
