After a DUI and possible incarcenation, are there programs out there to help people get back on there feet again? Not having the ability to drive?
I would talk with your attorney who should be able to give some direction to you. Every case is different but...
Person X has no prior record, is a good university student with professional aspirations, and presented him/herself this way during court proceedings and initial meeting with probation officer. X was pulled over for a moving violation and refused the chemical test. A breathalyzer was administered upon arrest, and X has been in the ARD program for three of six total months so far without having to take any drug tests. X is complying with all court mandated requirements, has completed the Alcohol Highway Safety Class, and has been up to date with reporting forms. To X's knowledge, his/her probation officer does not even remember him/her. X simply wants some clarification (actual numbers) regarding the likelihood of a random drug test with X's current situation. PA SPECIFIC APPRECIATED.
Person X is an interesting yet contradictory individual. On the one hand X is a "good university student with...
Officer gave me breath test but never explained what they wanted me to sign or why (turned out to be blood test request). PennDot wants to suspend my license for one year and I currently go to school full time and work full time with commuting 45min+ to each location.

Eligibility for ARD is determined by the District Attorneys of each county. While not familiar with the specifics in...
Also, I got no ticket or summons when I left the jail, and didn't see a judge, they just let me go. My car was towed, and I was able to pick it up later that day without any problem, just had to pay the tow fee. I called the police station, and they had no record of me being there... What should my next step(s) be???
It is not possible without more detailed information about your encounter with police to predict with any certainty...
Dui in remote county. ARD application filed. Waiver of Arraignment signed.What types of hearings take place from this point? Is it a benefit to plead guilty if I may not be able to afford ard? Not satisfied with my lawyer but it may be too far into it to change.
I believe this question has already been asked and answered. You have an attorney, you need to address your questions...
