May I have the names of some cheap high-risk auto insurance agencies in Colorado? I just got my driver's license back.
First DUI in CO 15 yrs. ago, 2nd one in CA 6 yrs. ago. I got a new driver's license in VT (while living there briefly) after CA cleared me because I signed a 1650 waiver. CA said it is not necessary for me to have SR-22 insurance, but my larger insurance company is dropping me next week because of my record. What do I do?
I have several clients who have gone through both Progressive and Geico. Both companies offer SR2 Insurance and are...
My nine month suspension is up on my licenseā€¦.
So my nine month suspension is up as of today (3-24-14) and i contacted the dmv to ask when i would be receiving the paper work in the mail to reinstate my regular license. what i am understanding from them is that because i got an interlock in and failed one month (of the five i have had it installed) that i cannot have it un installed until i go four consecutive months with no problems. Regardless whether my nine month suspension is up. can anyone please help me understand this or point me in the direction i need to pursue fighting this??

Prior DUI from 15 and 12 years ago in two other states. Is there any way of challenging the use of these as prior convictions in Colorado?

I am on probation for a DUI.
On probation for a DUI. When I was sentenced i had mentioned to the judge I was interested in an outpatient program and I had actually spoken to a specific one. When sentenced he had put on as a condition I complete that program. I had to wait for a spot to open and when it did I went to the class but was pulled out just yesterday and told they needed the spot for a more at risk person. When I spoke to the director he said I never should have been admitted to the program and that my insurance would not pay because of the time of my sobriety - it was for more immediate need people. (Sober over a year). I explained this to my PO but she said I had to get done and at this facility, could not go elsewhere, because of the judges order. I do not know what to do. Should I have a lawyer petion the court. For a change in sentence? Can I? I am ok going elsewhere or doing whatever the court requires but Now I am between a rock and hard place - with this place. 9 months on probation never failed ua or missed appointments or requirements.
Sorry you are in this predicament. However, judges usually are not in the business of penalizing someone who...
Are there options for DUI probation in Colorado? I would like to leave the state but am not resident any where.
Deciding whether to plead no contest/guilty to a DUI charge. I have out of state priors. While I think I can handle the work release I don't want to be trapped in Colorado for years. I came to Colorado hoping to only spend a couple of months but got this DUI (0.09 BAC, alleged turn signal violation). I had been out of the continent for a year and prior to that moved a lot. I understand that the interstate compact for probation defines residency as being a year or longer in a state and I don't fulfill this requirement any where. I would like to leave Colorado and look for work in Washington or Oregon after the work-release sentence (anticipate a 6 month sentence). Is there any way to have the probation be other than supervised? I can submit to random tests but really want to leave Colorado as soon as I can.
Unfortunately, with priors, probation is mandatory. Criteria for interstate compact approval may not be as stringent as...
The officer only suspected alcohol usage in a DUI case, but will the blood draw show potential illegal drug usage as well?
I willingly submitted to a blood draw for a DUI. I've heard the chances of having a lower alcohol level increase with a blood test, so I chose to have my blood drawn at the hospital instead of taking a road side breathilizer.
If the officer suspects drugs or requested the lab to analyze your blood sample for drugs then those could be detected....
