I was pulled over for beeping my horn on a very congested street 6 months ago and got a dwi. my attorney said this isnt PCause.
i was pulled over 6 months ago for beeping my horn on a very congested street at 11:00 p.m.. the police pulled me over in my friend's driveway and gave me a dwi. he pulled me over for beeping my horn, which my lawyer said is not probable cause because vehicle and traffic law states anyone driving on the road has the right to sound horn when necessary if there are obstacles on or about the road. the police statement says i was not driving recklessly or swerving, simply beeping my horn. i have a probable cause hearing finally, 6 months later, this friday....

What happened with my license suspension?
I was charged with a DWI in the state of NY, but it was reduced down to the under 21 infraction charge. The agreement was that i was supposed to lose my license for 6 months. I was given a 30 day "license"/sheet of paper that stated i could drive for a month after my final court date which was in July. The day it ended, they said I was supposed to lose my license. That day i was supposed to, i went to the dmv to try to get for my conditional license because i worked...and the girl said nothing was inputted into the computer so she can't do anything. I went back every day after for a week and still nothing. I then called my lawyer to ask about it and he jokingly told me "maybe the courts forgot". It has know been passed 6 months and my license is still clean. I recently applied for a license renewal because i turn 21 on March 4th. Another agreement was that my records are to be destroyed also. Did they really forget and will i ever actually lose my license now?
DMV can take a long time to input what they need to. It will catch up to you eventually, however, they should send a...
What does "covered" and "in full satisfaction" mean?
I was arrested in the state of New York for a DWI when I was 19 years old. I hired a lawyer and had it reduced down to "Driving after consuming alcohol under the age of 21". I ordered my criminal records through the mail for travel purposes to Canada and on the rap sheet it says What my conviction actually was (Driving after consuming alcohol under the age of 21" and then in another section it says "In Full Satisfaction" then under it, it states my charges that I was not convicted of. "DWI and DWI with .08% or more BAC ...." I am curious to what that means? Does this mean that they were dismissed? My court disposition says that these two other chsrges are "covered"
