Will an appeal be effective for an ignition interlock violation?
My license was reinstated 2- 1/2 years ago contingent on my adherence to a “conditional restoration agreement” which consisted of me having an ignition interlock device installed in my vehicle for a total of 7 years with the first 3 under tighter restrictions. Any violation would result in suspension reverting back to original suspension: 2011 conviction: ("Permanent" with eligibility for a dmv hearing after 4 years.) The 2010 incident was my 3rd DWI and have had no criminal/traffic issues since. I maintained sobriety from November of 2010 up until a moment of weakness this past April which resulted in me blowing into the device following a night of drinking. The failed test registered at a 0.075 followed by a 0.068 b.a.c. 5 mins later.. I had been called in to the DMV prior to this incident with missed running tests and false positive "fails" from chapstick on one occasion, a doughnut being the other. I have have been maintaining my sobriety but am having difficulty accepting a 4 year wait time which to me is cruel and unusual for an event that i busted butt to resolve. (Treatment/IOP/Meck. Step Court). Do I have any hope at an appeal or to shorten the revocation period?
If you're allowed a hearing, request one and hire an experienced DWI attorney who represents people at DMV hearings to...

What are my chances for getting a dismissal on a DUI when they couldn't find any drugs or alcohol in my system?
I am a student who has been working in Indiana for the past year. My primary address is still in NC. I had to make the trip to register for online classes with my community college. With that being said I had 2 days off of work (Jan. 4th & 5th) and a shift from 12pm-5pm the following day. So there wasn't much room for me to get a good nights rest in. Especially since I took a longer route than usual so I could see more of the states. Well on the way to Indiana from Raleigh, NC; I was stopped in Winston Salem, I was extremely exhausted from driving almost 1,300 miles at that point, anyways they made me do a field sobriety test (which they said I failed) I was wearing flip flops, shorts, and a T-shirt, which made it incredibly hard for me to not shiver in those freezing conditions as (I have an awkward stance) So I wasn't able to walk in a straight line in the for the test. Plus since I was basically waking up and scared it was kind of hard for me to focus. They used the breathalyzer a ton, I blew nothing because I nothing to drink. He then insisted that it had to be marijuana so he took me downtown and booked me. I am getting my own blood test done. I dont smoke anything.Can I win?
Giving you the exact same answer as when you previously posted and both then and now mentioned your flip flops (in...
