Can Parents Be Held Legally Responsible For An 18 YR old child getting in a drunk driving accident with a car in their name?
My son was driving a car in my name, the car is also on my insurance policy. My son is 18 years old and got into this accident with a BAC of .06. He has no previous serious incidents on his record. He does have 2 minor (5-10 mph) speeding tickets. Is it possible that if the person whom he hit claim is over my insurances liability coverage that i can be sued for the overage?

Driver's license reinstatement after dui with deferred sentence.
My adult son got a dui and was advised to go deferred by an alcohol counselor, as he'd lose his driver's license for 90 days instead of several years. He was also told after his probation was over, he'd once again be able to visit his father who lives in Canada. This all happened 5 years ago. He paid all his fines, followed all recommendations (classes, etc) and has finished his probation. He now wants to get his license again. He is being told by the DMV that he must take both the written and driving test and pay $250 for reinstatement. He is also being told he'll need to pay $250 for a 24 hour visit to his father in Canada. He went to the DMV today and the computer shows his record as "clear". Is this normal for a deferred sentence? Did he receive the correct advice by the alcohol counselor (who, incidentally, received approximately $2500 for the deferred classes my son attended)? Thank you for any info regarding this situation.
There are many different fees when dealing with the department of licensing. The fee for a reissue after an alcohol...
Will I go to jail at my arraignment for a DUI?
I have no criminal history, and when I was arrested for the DUI (marijuana), they did not book me into the jail or make me pay bail. They made me take a blood test at the hospital and then let me go to a hotel after impounding my car, which I was able to get back the very next day. I have a child at home and no one to take care of her if I am put in jail when I go to my arraignment. This is the first communication from the court and court appearance since I was arrested back in September. I am trying to get a public defender, but no information was given to me with the subpoena and as far as I know one has not been appointed to me.
You should be aware that it is a possibility and plan accordingly. But based on the little information here, it is...

Washington state. 1st dui. Under .015 bac. Court dropped dui to neg-1. Dui upheld by DOL. 12 month iid required. 90 day suspension.
