Does pre-conviction suspension in a DWAI ruling count towards the mandatory 90 day suspension?
I was arrested for drunk driving back in June in Suffolk County, NY. Long story short, I was ruled with a DWAI as long as i completed 50 hours community service and I'm assuming I must complete the DDP. I finished the service early and I'm waiting to go back to find out the rest. I received my conditional license and I can only do the essentials with that, but I hear I get my license back for 20 days on my next appearance. I was just wondering if the time passed counts towards that 90 day mandatory suspension or if it doesn't start until after I'm convicted, which technically has not happened yet?
No the time that you have been suspended for the suspension pending prosecution does not count toward the mandatory 90...

Basically after i finish my revocation with the courts... can the 10 yr NY dmv band affect me moving out to Georgia to get a license?
The Georgia motor vehicle commission will likely ask you in an application whether you have a suspension in any other...
Legal resident with 2 DWI within ten years - can I travel internationally and re-enter the U.S. Without problem?
I am a legal U.S. Resident who is currently on probation for a DWI. This is my second DWI within 10 years. I have written permission from my Probation Officer and the Judge allowing me to travel internationally. Can I re-enter the U.S. Without an issue? I have traveled internationally one time since the conviction without a problem and two times since the arrest, but before the conviction without a proem. I am concerned because I am now on probation.
You should not have any problem from the immigration point of view.
Question about probable cause on a DWI?
I unfortunately was arrested for a DWI. I was followed late at night, by an off duty cop who was driving his own personal vehicle, a Jeep, with off road auxiliary lights on super high. He followed me all the way to my home. I felt extremely scared and didn't know who he was. He also was tailgating me extremely close. My security camera at my home captured him doing this. He apparently made a call (I don't know to whom as I never recd the reports or if there was a 911 call) and I subsequently was arrested for DWI by another cop. I wanted to find out if this would still constitute probable cause? He claimed that I was driving erratic, which I was definitely was because I was frightened out of my mind. I am female and live alone. He never identified himself so I was terrified. Thank you.
i would have to read the complaint. If it says that the arresting officer was informed by the other off duty cop that...
Are there previous examples of prescriptions such as Adderall effecting field sobriety tests?
I received a DWI based on the officer's observations of a field sobriety test that included a (1) the horizontal gaze test while in the automobile, (2) a walk and turn test, (3) the horizontal gaze test outside the automobile, and (4) an onsite breathalyzer (.129). I refused the chemical test and have a refusal hearing with the DMV regarding my suspended license. Is there any examples where prescriptions such as adderall have been found to effect the outcome of either the horizontal gaze test and/or Breathalyzer?
It doesn't matter if it affects the breathalyzer since you refused it. The onsite breathalzyer you described is not...
Husband has a DWI accident n my name is Not on the registration but IS on the car insurance can I be sued?
I want to clarify my prior question from this morning. My concern is that my husband will get into a car accident for DWI n be sued but because both our names is on the House Deed and Car Insurance and Savings Account that I can be sued too. My name is NOT on the car registration, does that make a difference? Before something like this happens, is there a Legal Document I can have him sign releasing me from any responsibility for his actions?
Best bet is to get a big insurance policy, and look into an umbrella policy.
