Hi. I got arrested Saturday morning for operating under influence of liquor or drugs on the Gsp
I was pulled over Saturday morning on the Gsp. The state trooper came up behind me with his cruiser with his brights on and very close to my car so I immediately moved over to the right lane. I was pulled over and arrested. Have me to field test and brougt me to the barracks. After about a half hour or so gave me the breath test. First time it didnt register, then blew two more times. Never told me what I blew til I came the following day to get a release form for my car. I blew a .18. I live in ny and have a cdl.
It sounds like a case with many issues. Your cdl license complicates the matter and a .18 is a fairly high blow....
Hi. I got pulled over and arrested for operating under the influence of liquor or drugs on the garden state parkway.
I have a cdl, work in jersey and live in ny. It's my first offense. I was driving my personal vehicle. What will the penalties most likely be for me?
Repost your question on the New Jersey Avvo page.
If you have been charged with a refusal can you apply for a conditional license in NY?
I was charged with a DWAI, and a refusal in NY. Am I still eligible to receive conditional driving privledges in NY?
No, you are not eligible for a conditional license, but if you win at the DMV refusal hearing, you will get your...
Can I take a Xanax before court? I was arrested for a DWI and have court in a week.
I have a prescription for alprazolam for my anxiety--particularly public speaking/stressful situations. I get very red in the chest, face and neck and there is no covering it up. Can I take a Xanax or is that just asking for trouble?
If your doctor prescribed the medication and you need the medication then common sense would dictate.
I got arrested for a DWI in NY last week. I work in and currently live in NJ but have a NY license, is this going to be an issue
I am hoping to get a conditional license if I am convicted, will I not be able to get one in NY if I live in NJ? I never got a NJ license because it isn't my permanent residence. I was arrested in NY and I'm concerned that if I get a conditional NY license, I won't be able to drive to and from my apartment in NJ to work. I also refused the chemical test under suggestion from on of the officers, so at this point am I not eligible for a conditional license if by some miracle I am not convicted of the DWI?
Generally speaking, yes. Having an out of state license can really hurt your ability to get a restricted license....
What is the difference between VTL 1192.2 and VTL 1192.3? I am being charged for VTL 1192.3 (DWI INTOX)
I do not understand the difference between the two. VTL 1192.2 is listed as DWI 0.08% BAC or Greater, but 1192.3 simply lists DWI INTOX. Can you explain the difference?
The simple answer is that a charge of 1192.2 requires the DA to prove your BAC, blood alcohol content is .08 or above....
Is there any possibility I could lose my license for less than a year if I refused to do a chemical test?
I travel constantly for work and need to be able to rent a car when I am on business trips but that seems like it won't be a possibility with a conditional license. I understand I am going to lose my license but is there any way it won't be for a year?
Chemical test refusal hearings can be won. It depends on the facts of your case. Please contact an experienced DWI...
