I am licensed in CT - Do I need to have an ignition interlock device installed for a DWAI drug conviction that happened in NY?
should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV for a NY DWAI - DRUGS (driving while ability impaired - drugs) conviction? No alcohol was involved - I pled guilty to DWAI drugs which is why NY didn't make me put it in my car.... Now the CT DMV is suspending my license and requiring IID installed for a year...
Yes you do. Follow the directions provided to you in the DMV suspension letter and do not drive your vehicle until you do
Does NY only report DWAI convictions in the tri state area? What state DMVs will NY DWAI conviction be reported to?
A few months ago I pled guilty to a DWAI drugs in NY. I was a CT resident and licensed in CT @ the time. I just moved to FL. Ironically the same day I arrived here, a letter from the CT DMV was sent to my CT address advising me that my CT driving privileges will be suspended in a couple of wks. If I were to obtain a FL license and no longer hold a CT license, will my FL license eventually be suspended even if I wasn't licensed in FL @ the time of the conviction/incident? ALSO, should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV if it was a drug conviction and no alcohol was involved?
If you're able to remove all the holds, FL won't likely suspend your license.

Can I file a subsequent civil suit against the town and police department in which I was arrested, then acquitted of DUI?
I was arrested for DUI, but found the entire bizarrely excessive at the time. I refused SFST's and arrived at booking. Couldn't contact my attorney, so I called my girlfriend, who's vehicle it was and was also the passenger to try to contact an attorney before I did anything else. She quickly informed me the arresting officer was a well known family acquaintance of hers. He harassed her about dating "a guy like me" and humiliated her for several minutes. I refused any questioning or breathalyzer when she told me this in processing. My lawyer is now getting the case tossed in criminal court with a suspicion of cohersion on the officer's part. It is easy to prove he knew my girlfriend, as she taught his kids for several years. There is tangible evidence. Should I pursue damages?

I'm "suspended for life",3rd d.u.i.. I live in Ct. The last two were in 2001. Do I need interlock to ride 49cc scooter-moped?
suspended for life means a hearing at M.V.D. I was suspended back in 2001 for third D.W.I. I have become fully disabled since 2002. Since then I served 1 year of incarceration where I was allowed to attend an alcohol treatment and education program that was required by the court. It seems that after 12 years absolutely nobody has any record of this, including M.V D. , I'm a totally different person these days with alcohol use way behind me. I can hardly walk and need a simple moped-scooter-49cc to relieve the burden to the tax payers for local transportation around town for doctors and small necessities. I can't afford a car or motorcycle on tiny fixed income, so do I need another alcohol class and an interlock device to occasionally use it for very local errands ?
This is an easy answer. They don't make IIDs for mopeds or motorcycles, so the question is mute.
I was pulled over by a police officer after having 4 beers, but got arreted (DUI). what should i do?
I was pulled over by a police officer after having 4 beers. I passed 3/4 driving tests but I stopped at missisipi #21 (which i shouldn't have because I was supposed to go endless). What should I do now? I need my drivers license to go to work...
I doesn't matter how many field sobriety tests you passed. Or how many beers you had.....Stop posting the details....
Do I need an attorney for a drinking while driving offense? No DUI. What punishment(s) am I most likely to face?
I was pulled over for rolling through a stop sign. The officer saw an open beer in my cup holder. I was given a sobriety test, which I passed (no B.A.C. taken). I have no previous moving or alcohol related violations/infractions, and a completely clean record (i.e., I've never been arrested before).
At the very least you should set up a consultation with a criminal lawyer to discuss your case. Especially for a...
