Will the police do anything if I call about a habitually drunk driver?
My father-in-law (who is a prick and an alcoholic) has a problem with driving drunk. He's going to kill someone one of these days. I have pulled out vodka containers 1/4 full out of his Tahoe before after he just got home from work. He has smashed his SUV into the house and damaged both. He called the police on himself one time to go to detox and registered a .34 on a breathalizer. Problem is, he continues this habit of drinking and driving. Even a liquor store employee told him once "you shouldn't be driving when you're drunk". Question is, if I notify the local police (just up the road) about this, will they keep an eye on his vehicle and pull him over for any sort of infraction just to deter the behavior? Will they even do anything?
If you call in and provide your identity and specific information about a particular incident in progress then my guess...
Going to court for dwi on atv - will i lose my car driving priv's also?
I was stopped on an ATV and receivied a violation for DUI. My implied consent urine resulted in .11. I have a careless driving - alcohol related - on my record from over 12 years ago. Since this dui was on an ATV am i facing losing my driving rights to a car also? there is conflicting information on-line.
My understanding is that your driver's license WILL be revoked if you are convicted of the DWI offense on the ATV,...

Will it go on my permanent record and can/ will I be able to fight it?
I'm 18, this weekend I was camping and we got a noise citation, along with that there was alcohol on the camp site and we got another citation for that. I was not drinking, and because others were I was required to take a breathalyzer which i blew a 0 (obviously) so will this citation given to me by a camp ranger go on my record and can I fight it in court seeing as though the camp site wasn't under my name and I wasn't drinking?
You are permitted to fight any allegation against you whether it is an infraction or a criminal ticket. You should...
My friend was pulled over for drunk driving but never was mirandized
My friend was pulled over for drunk driving, given a sobriety test, refused a breathalyzer without an attorney, was arrested, taken to police station, then was breathalized, but she was never mirandized, can her dui be revoked?
No, the reading of the rights are not required to charge someone with a DUI. There are specific legal requirements,...
Got charged with a DUI but have yet to receive a citation and court date. How long does it take to receive either?
My dui wasn't a typical situation. My sister and I were getting taunted by a group of males who were surrounding my vehicle. This group of males were also badgering us in the bowling alley and both parties were asked to leave. The males then wandered to the back parking lot and began the taunting and then surrounded my car. Yes, there were probably other options but I reacted on fear. When I drove away one of the males broke my back windshield. Cops dismissed the guys actions and focused on me. They walked away with no charges and me a DUI. It's been a week and I have not received any information, no citation number or court date.
Sorry to hear about your situation. I am not licensed in MN, but I can tell you that a week's delay is probably not...
Any recourse for AZ license cancellation notice due to Minnesota listing 2001 incident on National Driver Register?
Convicted DUI in Tempe, AZ in January 2001 (14+yrs ago). Had valid Minnesota DL at the time. Issued AZ DL in July 2001. Minnesota demands $680 to clear notice they recently posted to Nation Driver Registry related to DUI. AZ has set 8/3/2015 as deadline to clear issue and avoid action in Arizona. Minnesota needs 2+weeks to process and clear; AZ deadline will have passed. Phone calls with both Arizona and Minnesota representatives have provided no assistance, or guidance. How valid is this Minnesota demand, from out-of-nowhere? How can I extend the AZ deadline? How can I avoid $680 payment?
You will have to satisfy all MN requirements before they will clear your status since you held a MN license at the time...
