Yesterday late afternoon I arrested for two hours in cliffside park police dept. I drunk 4 cans of beer and sake with family in house. After then I tried to move my car to the other side because my car block the driveway. When I tried to park, my car was bumped into a car which was parked. That car damaged a little bit dent front bumper. At that time, a neighbor who saw that situation called police. I did roadside tests and then they arrested me. After then in police office I did breath test. I didn't refuse breath test. but they didn't get result so I did 3 times. and then they just released me with 5 tickets. 1.

Can a recent DUI be vacated by filling a PCR application to prevent enhanced consequences of Driving While Suspended for DUI?
I originally plead guilty to my first ever DUI on 02/01/2016. I received a 7 month loss of license because It was a drug related dui. Soon afterwards about the first week of April 16' motor vehicle sent me a letter stating they were taking action against me. They said in addition to the 7 month loss of license, they were administratively suspending me an additional 6 months for driving while suspended. They said this was because on 05/12/2015 Haddon Heights Court suspended my license due to non-compliance with a time payment order. Then on 05/13/2015, the very next day, I got a DUI in Washington Twp. When I got the DUI I was not ticketed for DWS, and neither myself nor the cop knew I was a suspended driver. I want to know if I can file a PCR to possibly vacate and even fight the DUI because in addition to the what id call unfair admin suspension, I got caught in evesham twp. in the beginning of the month driving on a DUI related suspension that is currently pending. Could vacating the DUI due to the adverse admin action motor vehicle took against me possibly help with the DWS I received in evesham twp.? The main reason I didn't fight it was bc it was linked to an indictable.
The adverse action taken by the MVC is not in my view a basis for filing a PCR on the DWI. The appropriate action...
NJ DUI with NY License
I refused a breathalizer test and was released with 3 tickets but was not given a summons for refusal. Any suggestions or knowledge on what is next for me. My license is NY and this happened in NJ
Can still mail you tickets for refusal or charge you with DWI based on observation. Or both.
Can I get a public defender for a DWI case?
I lost control of my car and crashed into someones fence. I also broke my foot in the accident. When the cops came I was already waiting outside of my car. They asked me if I needed medical attention but I refused, thinking my ankle was just sprained. They gave me the field sobriety tests on grass but I failed because my ankle/foot hurt. Then they arrested me and took me to the station where they observed me then gave me the breathalyzer. Then they wrote the tickets and gave me my cell phone back and called someone to pick me up. I already spoke to two lawyers and both said the case against me looks strong, and that the judge in Tenafly is very strict. I have NO money at all especially since I have not been able to work due to my injury. My question is can I be able to get a public defender? Or is it better for me to just plead guilty and get it over with? My court appearance is actually this Wednesday.
You may be able to do so if you are in a County that it is offered and your income is below certain amount.
2nd DWI after 13 years, parts of penalty confusing?
I got a 2nd DUI after 13 years so it was supposed to be treated like a 1st time DWI. I received some penalties which did not make sense to me. The Judge did not order Interlock, ( a good thing) I am guessing because It was not alcohol ( prescription drug, I bumped a car in front of me, Officer said my eyes were glassy) but I was given a 7 month suspension, not 3 months which I thought was the case for 1st time offenders under a certain limit? How do they determine when it is a drug unlike alcohol that you are over a certain limit regarding the interlock anyway? Why would a judge make anyone have Interlock when it is not alcohol, it does NOT show up on the machine you blow into? Some Laws pertaining to DWI/DUI don't make a lot of sense, seems to be more about punishments/ & money than possibly giving help to those who may be addicted to alcohol or drugs. How does excessive fines and paying for programs and all those funds and the worst the 3k Surcharge over 3 years help? I know you must pay a price but depending on the situation, not a one size fits all.
It is about punishment and not about helping the addicted. As far as the traffic laws are concerned, drink all you want,...
Unpaid fines
I just finished a 10yr suspension for my 3rd DUI, when I called DMV to pay my restoration fee they said everything looked good except for some unpaid fines in Mount Holly Twp NJ,from 1989 that I couldn't believe, so I called Mount Holly to ask them about it and they couldn't fine any records of it in there system, I even gave them the ticket numbers DMV gave me and they still found nothing, they said they would probably send me a court notice and the judge might dismiss it, what's your opinion on this? I did get my 2nd DUI in Mount Holly in 1989 and i'm sure those fines were paid off because I never had a warrant out of Mount Holly Twp for traffic fines. I can't get restored until I get this mess straighten out.
