(Michigan) Can I ask for the blue book value for restitution if it was totaled after a collision with a drunk driver?
I was hit by a drunk driver, I only had PLPD insurance. I am giving a copy of all the costs I acrewed as a result of the crash such as towing which my insurance did not cover. The vehicle has been estimated and totaled out as the cost to repair the vehicle is past the threshhold of what the vehicle is worth. I have the estimate as well as the kelly blue book value of my vehicle plus the cost of towing. My vehicle is worth between $1,800 and $2,042 and I want to ask for $2,000 to replace the totaled vehicle because that left me and my family without a vehicle plus the $150 towing cost so a total of $2,140. Is that realistic to ask for?
It's a reasonable request. I would keep copies of all receipts and paperwork that you have been given so that you can...
Will I be able to get a OWI high bac dropped down?

Can I reduce the charges of a zero tolerance arrest with a plea bargain?
I was recently arrested for zero tolerance. Can I make a plea bargain? If so, what is my best option? Or should I plead not guilty. I know I made a mistake and want to take responsibility. I just don't want to end up in jail or with a suspended license.
This is hard to do but it can be done.

I was pulled over for dd. Not given breathalyzer or had blood taken. I was put into a cab and sent home. This happened in Chesterfield michigan,but it won't let me put that in as a location.

Can I get felony DUI expunged in the state of Michigan
was charged with my 3rd dui june of 2009 prior to that I was charged with my 1st in 2006 and another 1st in 1989 since the law change in 2007 they went all the way back on my record to get the 3rd offence I no longer drink have not since jan 30th 2009 the day of the arrest (I know that does not matter to the courts) would really like this felony off my record so that I will be able to hunt and teach my child to hunt and own hunting riffles
Drinking and driving offenses cannot be expunged. Your only hope is a governor's pardon.
I was ticketed with an OVWI as opposed to a DUI, what should I expect moving forward?
I was ticketed with an OVWI or Operating While Visibly Impaired. In some ways I suppose this is better than a DUI/OWI but I can't find much on the law because it seems that Michigan may be one of the few or only states that has specific charge for "impaired" vs drunk driving. Is an OWVI something that can be expunged, and what kind of probation is to be expected for this charge? Thanks in advance for any helpful advice. (I did resubmit this with a slightly different question title because my first one was categorized under traffic/speeding violations and I thought DUI would be more effective.)
Impaired Driving (OWVI, or Operating while Visibly Impaired), is a lesser included offense of OWI (Operating While...
