    Question: My front license plate fell off recently, am I required to display one? Can I display it up in the front windshield? Why do we need two license plates anyway? Answer: This is what Minnesota State Statute 169.79 says about license plates: "No person shall operate, drive, or park a motor vehicle on any highway unless the vehicle is registered in accordance with the laws of this state and has the number plates or permit confirming that valid registration or operating authority has been obtaineda " There are some vehicles that are allowed to display only one license plate: motorcycles; a dealer's vehicle or vehicle in-transit; a collector's vehicle with a pioneer, classic car, collector, or street rod license; a vehicle that is of model year 1972 or earlier , and is used for general transportation purpose.

No drugs & Alcohol detected for both DUI cases one year apart; can I reopen the case and appeal?
On October 2013 I was pulled over because I was reported to be swerving around the road". Unfortunately, I had a marijuana pipe in my car of which was found and so the officer suspected I was on drugs. I cooperated with the Breathalyzer, and field sobriety test up until I ended up getting a blood test at the hospital and sitting my ass in jail. I was pulled over in Washburn county, after driving 6 hours from Madison Wisconsin to Duluth Minnesota to pick up my mother whom was kicked out of her home that night. According to the police officer I was pulled over for swerving on the road, give me a damn inattentive driving ticket than. this case is a year old, the laboratory results obviously came back with nothing detected. I need my damn license back. Is it to late to reopen and fight?

How can I most effectively dismiss this charge?
Recently I was pulled over for going 45 in a 35 zone. The state trooper must have smelled alcohol in my car and asked me to step out. I was cooperative and permitted to a breathalyzer where I blew a 0.04. I also had 2 open containers in my vehicle, but they were claimed by a passenger in my car. I was cited for underage drinking and driving and have a mandatory court date. I have a clean record and no previous run ins with law enforcement. I regret this and would be devistated if this stayed on my record and prevented me from obtaining opportunities. I read somewhere that it's possible to do a continuance without plea, that way I agree to have no alcohol related violations within a year, I will pay the fine and the charge will be dismissed and removed. Please help me make the right descion

My laywer didn't submit a brief when he was supposed to in my implied consent. Said we wouldn't win anyway. Is that normal?
Judge gave him 3 weeks to submit. The day it was due I sent him an email asking for a copy - no response. Emailed him and firm for next week with no response. Finally emailed back and asked to talk on ph and said he didn't submit anything because of the Bernard decision that I wouldn't stand a chance with a prior on my record from 9 yrs ago. This DWI was a .09. Was initially pulled over for speeding (40 in 30).
If the only issue you raised was Bernard-related and then Bernard came out after your hearing, I don't think that would...
