Can I have the device removed without penalty? How do I go about doing so? What are penalties for removal without auth?
I was operating a vehicle under a restricted license after two alcohol related driving offenses and had a interlock ignition system installed. A few months back, I posted a reading above the .025 regulation and my license was once again revoked. I went in for my appeal and was denied several weeks later. I have no reason to keep the device installed for the next year as I wait out the year long period. How do I go about getting the device removed legally? I was told that because I didn't get authorization from the Sec of State for completing my program I would get an unauthorized removal tag and that there could be penalties tied to this. It seems like the state has me trapped in either keeping the device or forcing me to have it removed with authorization and thus possibly getting into more legal and financial trouble. It doesn't make since to have to keep a device on a vehicle that I'm unable to operate, but I also don't want anymore issues with the state.
How about not drinking and driving, then it doesn't matter about the interlock device. You have, obviously,...
Can your license be suspended for a second DUI if it means having to quit your job, be homeless, and not meet probation?
I received a 2nd DUI & was sentenced with 1 yr probation, testing 3 days/wk, AA 2x'/wk & alcohol counseling 1x/wk, plus 240 hrs of community service & having my car immobilized for 90 days. I work 2 part time jobs & rent a room from a family. The Secretary of State has revoked my license for a full year & said I am unable to apply for a restricted license for work & court purposes. Since there is no public transportation, I am being forced to quit my jobs leaving me with no income & forcing me to become homeless. In addition, I will not be able to comply with probation. The courts say it is not up to them & I have to deal with the Secretary of State. I want to work & I am capable of working but am being forced to collect welfare & look for government housing. Can they legally do this?
Yes they can legally do this. This is your 2nd DWI and obviously you don't understand the dangers of drinking and...

Charged with DUI 3 years ago but have not received license suspension yet. Who do i have to contact?
DUI received in Michigan. In the time all this was going on i moved to florida and did all my court ordered penalties like aa meetings and paid what i had to. But still have not received anything from the secretarial of state for a suspension of my license which should have suspended my license for 1 year. So i still drive around with the paperlicense issued to me. I was able to keep it since the officer did not show up for the hearing. Tried to get a florida license but they told me something was pending in michigan. Tried calling every place in michigan from court to sherrifs office to secretary of state but transfer me from one place to the other. Secretary of state told me th Could it be that my license is already suspended and i just have not received the mail in the moving process?
Yes, it is very possible. If this was a second or subsequent offense, and was within seven years of a previous...

Essentially you are going to violate probation, but can't go to jail on that. For the Owi, you face the whole gamut of...
Do I still loose my license?
I have been convicted off a DUI back in october 2012. The court has failed to close the case properly and sent the notification about my conviction to the Secretary of State (license suspension for a year). Will I still loose my license for a year or will they have to backdate the conviction? I thought I have been suspended since october 2012 and due to me needing to drive now have tried to reinstate my license. The SOS told me it was not suspended and still under the 625 license. Is this up to the SOS if thry backdate it or not ir is there some kind of rule they have to abide by.
I believe I follow your question, however it is a bit confusing. What you should do is go the a Secretary of State...
