Do I need an attorney for a preliminary hearing with the NCDMV following a failed run test? I had NOT been drinking.
Ignition interlock installed after 2nd dui. Monitech is the company doing the interlock. When I went in for this program violation I was sure I hadn't been drinking and went in specifically to have the unit serviced bc of it. I was told I blew a 0 on start test, then a .01 first running test. I then pulled to the side of the road and blew another 0. They agreed it was likely a mouth contaminent and noted that (even though I had only ingested water and eaten nothing). I assumed them saying this cleared it up, but no I must now ask for a trial as I received a notice of suspension form the NCDMV. Is this cut and dry enough to handle on my own or do I need a lawyer? I am a broke grad student so looking for realistic guidance.
Get local DUI/DWI counsel involved to preserve your rights. Avvo find a lawyer feature can help you find same.
How can I get this machine off my car
I have a interlock on my car for 2 Dwi. convictions.I was driving in snow and ice if I'd stop me and every one behind me would be stranded or they would have hit me.that costed me 35 more dollars.my Dwi was over 8 years ago before this new law.I thinking of finding all the interlock company's in my area and switching back and forth like you do your cable tv and home phone.is this good idea or is there another out? The state gives these companies to much control over people.This is part of the reason people are on welfare.

I was charged with a DUI on a scooter, but was not pulled over by an officer ,
This is my 4th in 6 years , but was not driving this time, have been sober since my arrest August 23 the day before my birthday, but there was 2 witnesses , a waitress in sir pizza and a customer , but they waited for me to go outside and the called the police so I waited , so it's been taking a long time , I thought my lawyer was going to take care of it in the beginning because the witness were not there and now they have been subpoenaed for Nov 3, at one time the district attorney called me up and said he was going to take care of it on the next court date and my lawyer just kept on continuing it.

When can I get an IID removed?
I was convicted of DUI in May of 2014 for BAC +.15. I gave up my license for 45 days, I got an IID installed in July at the direction of the NCDMV and got limited driving privileges. I was required to have the IID for one year - is that one year from the date I was convicted or date of install?
