Will I be able to drive here in Ohio if placed on the ARD program for a DUI in PA?
I am an Ohio resident. I got charged with a DUI in PA. Am placed into the ARD program. The courts have suspended my driving privileges for 60 days in PA. But now one in the court system..not even my lawyer can tell me if my Ohio privileges will also be suspended. They tell me that by doing ARD that I am not convicted, only charged. So, will I still be able to drive here in Ohio? Thank you.
You should contact the Ohio BMV to see if you are still valid in Ohio. A lot depends on exactly how you were charged,...
3rd FRA
I got my 3rd non compliance about 6 months ago, all in 4 years so I have a 2 year suspension, I talked to a lawyer whose a friend for advice, he is a civil court judge but helped as much as he could, and he told me that since I missed my administrative hearing I can only have a judge overturn it. The big question in the case was I was plowing driveways in the winter, I was on the road but it was because the roads were recently plowed and there was a good 2+ feet of snow next to the road, I didn't have insurance but we were unsure if I would be exempt from having insurance since my ATV is not made to drive on the road, it had chains on the tires and a plow, I know construction and farm equipment are exempt, is there a chance my ATV would be exempt?
You could try and make that argument. I wouldn't expect it to be a winner, but if the ATV was the kind with a cargo bed,...
I was got an OVI but blew under the limit (.078). I was pulled over for a registration light out. Is that legal?
If I was driving at 1:30 a.m. from Vermilion, Ohio (vermilion township) and was pulled over because the light over my license plate was out, but still had to take a sobriety test and breathalyzer but blew .078 can I still get a OVI? The officer also said he would put on the record I was polite, respectful, and was driving fine (no swerving/speeding) and when asked if I seemed drunk or coherent, he said I seemed coherent and "with it". I was let go and didn't get my license suspended but still got a pink ticket with an ovi charge. Officer said since I had some alcohol in my system a judge can decide what to do, even tho the amount in my system was over the limit. So I have to go to court for all this, the light out and ovi (.078), what should I say/do? What is the probable outcome or your best advice??
Tag light out is good probable cause to stop. Did you get a ticket? Hire an attorney
