Is there anything I can do to not lose my license or at least a limited privilege?
I received a letter in the mail that my license was suspended for 1 year due to violation of interlock system. I scheduled a hearing with the DMV to explain that I had been drinking the night before and must not have waited long enough for the alcohol to fully dissipate. I blew a .039 which allowed my to start my vehicle. While driving I blew a .047 which was a failed rolling restart. 15 minutes later I blew a .034 which allowed me to restart my vehicle and get home. My limit is a .04. After my hearing I received another letter telling me I needed to turn in my license in 1 week. I guess the hearing didn't do any good. I could not afford $1500 that the lawyers are asking for this hearing. I ave not had any traffic violations since Feb 2011. Interlock was given by DMV not court system.
It seems if you are in a pickle. The lawyers are the best bet. I know $1500 dollars seems to be a high amount but there...

Question about BAC blood test results after accident while intoxicated. No word yet, will they call? Can I still be arrested?
I was driving impaired and wrecked my vehicle 2 days ago. A police officer was on the scene and wrote a citation for the accident and on the ticket checked the box for "impairing substance". I went to the hospital and they did not take blood, but the sheriff's office collected blood, and I received copies of two forms regarding my consent for the blood. The accident occurred on Friday night and I still have not heard back about the BAC blood test or if I am to be arrested. Would they have called me if the test was positive or negative? Is it possible that I can still be charged and arrested for DUI? Is it standard to wait this long? Should I call to try to get results? I am a first time offender, the incident occurred in Pine Level NC, Johnston County Police
Each state is different. But, in Louisiana you could be charged with an offense once the blood work is tested. Did...
