Can i pay the courts for community service hours in Rhode Island?
I lost my license 3+ years ago for speeding and was required to do the 6 week driving course for 850$ and 60 hours community service. Since my license is lost and i am far from places that accepts community service unless i pay for rides from family/friends or taxi both of which i cannot afford because i cant work with no car. Soo you can see how i am stuck. Would i be able offer the courts 10$ per hour of my community service and 850$ same day and get my license back so i can actually drive to my driving course for 6 weeks? If so how? Thanks. Also if you're a lawer in the area that can make it happen i would love to hire you.

If a cop pulls somebody over for a DUI but instead gives them a traffic ticket, is the DUI information carried to traffic court?
Lets say you're pulled over and the cop breathalyzes you and you're over the limit and instead of detaining you, gives you a ride home and gives you a speeding ticket. If you challenge the ticket in court, can the cop use the fact that you were driving under the influence against you? Or is that dismissed since you weren't charged with a DUI?
First of all, it wounds like you may have dodged a bullet. The state can bring the DUI charges against you at any time...

Post DUI License Reinstatement Denied...Appeal Options?
My Rhode Island license was suspended for two years following my third DUI. I applied to have my license reinstated after the two years was up a few months ago and I received a letter from the RI DMV Medical Review Board stating my license would not be reinstated at this time because I did not meet a vague list of requirements relating to my psychiatric and mental health. For instance they say I need a letter from a medical professional certifying I have been in treatment with said professional for 12 months and that I have not consumed any alcohol during that time. My question is whether, how and what I can do about this moving forward. I feel like the letter and requirements are, first and foremost, very vague and unclear. Secondly these requirements were never communicated to me during my sentencing or at any time until my license reinstatement was denied. The idea of waiting another year for my license to be reinstated is heart breaking and moreover I do not understand exactly what they want me to do and how to even go about it. Do I have any options for hiring a lawyer to appeal this decison?
I handle cases like this in California, you need to hire an attorney who does medical dmv hearings in RI
