Open Container Violation
I got pulled over and was found with a basically full open beer in my car.I'm 23 so I admitted to having a sip and it was a stupid Idea. I received a ticket and when I looked at my ticket the officer screwed up my last name by leaving one letter out. He also screwed up my driver license number by one digit as well. I also never signed the ticket. So I was wondering should I fight it do I have a chance of it being thrown out. Should I pay the fine and go on my way or do I have a chance of it being thrown out.
I would not recommend trying to fight the ticket on the grounds that there were minor typos on your citation. The...
I'm traveling to Germany from the US and want to know if I can legally drive there?
I currently have an interlock device on my car for the next 2 years because of two DUIs I had. I'm traveling to Germany and want to know if it will be legal for me to drive there with no interlock device? I'm going to rent a car with my wife and we just need to know if she's the only one who can drive, or whether I'm free to as well.
Tp be safe She should be the only one driving. The interlock is for a year on any car you operate.
My driver's license was revoked in Florida in 2008 for a 4th DUI. I moved to Oregon in 2011. How can I get a hardship license?
I have satisfied all monetary and legal obligations in Florida. I spoke in person with an employee of the DMV administrative review board in Panama City, Florida last year and they told me they do work with people who have moved out of state and have a revoked or suspended Florida Driver's License to obtain a Florida Driver's License clearance so I may be able to obtain one in Oregon. Is this possible and what is required? I have turned my life around and have been sober since 2010. Any information is appreciated.
Contact Florida dmv and inform them you're no longer a resident and ask how to get the hold removed from your drivers...

As a canadian and being charged with a dui and hit and run what kind of penalty am I looking at
First time in the United States of America, had a little too much to drink and I couldn't really trust anyone with my car, not know anybody at all I never been in this type of situation before and I'm stuck in Oregon with no money and clothing and tried to apply for a social security number. And because I am a native American but Canadian I told the US Canada border that I was just going to visit and I did not need a passport to enter the United States and my boyfriend now can not petition for me to become a resident. Would America extradite me back to Canada? I would really love to stay in the states with my boyfriend.

I blew a 0.07 on a breathalyzer. Do you suggest a lawyer for the hearing? What are my chances of dismissal if I don't get one?
Legal breathalyzer limit is 0.08 in OR. I just got off a 16-hour shift and had 2 beers. I was dog-tired, not intoxicated, when I was given the sobriety tests. I have astigmatism so my eyes will jerk with a light directed at them. I also have ADHD so I have difficulty following multiple instructions so I failed the Walk-&-Turn test which is hard to pass even with no alcohol. If I arm myself with documentation of my 16-hour shift, astigmatism, and ADHD, what are my chances of getting my case dismissed at the hearing if I represented myself? I really can’t afford a lawyer and would like to slay this dragon at the onset. Do you have any other suggestions? Would you advise my writing a letter to the judge or DA? Thank you!
