Can my D.W.I be reduced to reckless driving?
I blew a .15 but its my first D.W.I. The courthouse denied my right to a witness and gave me water to drink and told me it would help me with my test. The arresting officer is also my Brother-in-law, who is well aware I do not like his brother or their family. I was not told why I was pulled over, and was also told I passed all the tests the officer gave. I have since started a non-profit transport shuttle to reduce the number of D.W.Is in my county (which are alarmingly high) I am a college student and cant really afford a lawyer unless I know it will be worth it, does anyone think I have a chance to get it reduced to reckless driving?

My daughter had a few drinks and wrecked her car . No one else was involved . She was driving on a unfamiliar road and went around a corner to fast and rolled her car .

My license was permanently suspended for DWI in 1992
License was suspended permanently for DWI IN 1992. Received a stop sign violation 2 1/4 yes ago. Why do I have to wait for three yrs from date of conviction instead of one year. It was my understanding that drug or alcohol covictio s were three year extensions, but not a stop sign.
If you drove while you were permanently revoked, you were driving when you were not allowed to. And you picked up an...
