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...

What does a pending owi charge mean? And why did the officer do a breathalyzer and blood test?
I was arrested in auburn hills, Mi Oakland county, and took a breathalyzer and then was brought to the hospital for a blood test, and now I am facing a pending charge. Was released from the jail within 2 1/2 hours and did not have to be bailed out.
Well if you blew higher than .02 you will probably be charged. In addition if your blood comes back with dope or...

I was 7 minutes late to a pbt for probation for my OWI. Do you believe it'll be a serious violation?
This is the first time ive ever been in trouble (for the OWI) and I am going to be released in October at 51st District Court Waterford. Just recently I over slept over the weekend (has been a busy last few weeks) and I was 7 minutes late to my PBT test. It was 9:07 on my PBT log, and I still blew .000 though. Do you believe I should call my PO and let her know or just wait till I see her next month in August and see if she brings it up? This would be my first real late PBT. I've had a few 9:01 or 9:02 on my PBT logs and she's never said anything about it but I didnt know if this would be different because it was slightly a little longer late time then before. Like I said I still blew .000 but I kind of a little worried just because I am at the end of the road with probation.
Just to be safe, I'd call and let her know. Full disclosure is the best policy with probation officers. My bigger...
