Do I have to install an ignition interlock system if I received a deferred judgment on OWI in Iowa?
Until March of this year, my driving record and criminal record were spotless. I am 28 years old. I was arrested for OWI in March, after failing the chemical test (.11 was the result). The judge gave me a deferred judgment based on two years of good conduct probation and a civil penalty, court costs, and an emergency response fee totaling over $2,000. In September, I am eligible to get my license back (after the 180 day revocation from DOT). I have talked to some who say I will need the ignition interlock system, while others say that I will not. Does a person who receives the deferred judgment on a first time OWI have to install the ignition interlock system (for regular license after 180 days, not for the temp. res. license)?

Iowa driver with license suspended in Illinois for DUI. Can I still drive in Iowa since I have not received notice from Iowa?
2nd offense DUI (previous was ~3 years ago in Iowa). Statutory summary suspension does not clarify this issue. Until Iowa notifies me of any revocation/suspension, can I still drive anywhere except Illinois?

My car "charger" was parked by my house out of fuel from earlier in the day because my sister was driving it. After getting home from a local small town bar, my sisters ex called me in for "erratic" driving my girlfriends car "Pontiac." staying he was right behind me, however was still at said bar. After arriving home, I drank heavily, and wanted a ciggerette tired of standing I walked to my car "charger" and smoked then fell asleep "keys in center console" two sheriffs deputy's came to my door ordered me out, they told me I had been drinking and driving, after telling them my story they insisted I was, asked for a field test, and breathilizer. I kept asking why and asking what I did wrong was never once said no to either. they continued demanding that I was driving and drinking because I was so "reported" to be all over the road from a caller "sisters ex". I kept my words to myself and refused to say anything else after I knew the topic was going no where. They read my my rights 30mins later at the county jail. Worth noting: I use to work at said sheriffs office in the jail, left on bad terms. One of the officers who detained me didn't see eye to eye with me. Please help! TY

How long before they charge you with a DUI?
I was in a single car accident a week ago under the influence of alcohol. I live in Iowa and was airlifted from the scene. The police know I'm currently home but have not charged me with a DUI yet. Is this normal...or possibly did they over look that I was under the influence. The hospital took alcohol blood test?????
