(Orlando, Florida) Orange county

I have 3DUI's, went thru everything involved, paid everything, did everything court ordered. Was supposed to be reinstated 07/06/2011, called Tallahassee 2 wks befoe to find out how much reinstatement fees were, and was told the medical review board had "red-flagged" me. They said they didn't have to inform me of this decision, and I would have found out when I went to reinstate. They sent me paperwork for my Dr. to fill out, he did, but now it might take until Oct. 3rd to find out if they okay it or not. I did try to get a hardship back in '08, they got Dr. records, found out I was prescribed pain medication (which in no way had anything to do with previus dui's) for back issues. I contacted an admnistrative lawyer in DeLand, and they said it was a criminal matter - not administrative, and they had no right to do this. I have to money to hire an attorney - have been laid off for over a year, plus all those dui's were expensive. I'm very close to being homeless. But can you advise me on what to do? With my luck, they'll probably turn me down. If I could get my license back, I could get a job - everything I've looked for, you need a license. PLEASE help me in this matter. I'm serious about almost being homeless - and my unemmployment's almost gone. I've got 1-1/2 months left. Thank you for your time.

(Ormond Beach, Florida) Volusia county

I've already served sentence, should have been reinstated July 6, 2011. Tallahassee said medical review board "red-flagged" my license.

His wife was in the hospital.My lawyer, in Hawaii whee this happened, said that this is what they do. They pull you over for something then try to get you for dui to make money. I was told that I didn't have the right for a Jury of my peers in this. How many DA's say they want to lose this one? After my case was over, my lawyer went to work for the DA's.

I tried givin g the guy my information because I was so scared and didnt want to get a dui if the cops showed up!

From that point i completely cooperated with the ofices on the scene. I did a field sobriety test and a breath test and failed both. I blew a .175 and a .177. At this point I am trying to see what I need to do to not lose all of my driving priledges, at least so i can drive to and from work and school! As far as filing for a hearing to get the 42 day extension or filing for my Hardship, i would just like to get a little bit of advice on which way I should procceed from here! Hope to hear back, Thanks so much for your time!!

(Orlando, Florida) Orange county

My case happened when i lived in West Palm Beach in 2005. My license was revoked for five years. I was allowed to place myself in an alcohol recovery program run by the V.A. where i spent one year. I entered the program March 2005 and left April 2006. I have not had a drink since. I would like to know if i can qualify for a hardship license. I have been on a V.A. pension since 2000 and the cost of restoring my license is too high for me to reach. What ever information i can receive would be golden for me right now. My SR22 was up in 2007 and the kind of work i do requires a drivers license Thank you for any help you may be able to give. God bless....

(Hollywood, Florida) Broward county

i realized my foot off the brake of my vehicle as the light turned green, my vehicle began to slowly roll but the driver in front of me didnt see the light was green and just didnt move. Before i could realize that he wasnt moving i very gently tapped his bumper accidently since i didnt secure the brake well. I apologized to the driver and explained my mistake. Assuming we had come to a resolution I proceeded to drive. shortly after I was pulled over at a u turn intersection my vehicle incurred a curb check from tightness of the u-turn and the officer exited his vehicle and was accusing me of a hit and run. I explained the misunderstanding to him that the driver and I had no issues since no damage happened. The officer insisted that I was drunk, I explained that i hadnt been drinking, he insisted on a breathalyzer test which he repeatedly performed approx. 3 times, he performed a few field sobriety tests which due to the high beams and lights pointed in my line of vision, mak ing thefield test more of an obstacle than it should be. The officer determined that I was incapacatated and impounded my vehicle and booked me.

blew 0.15 in Feb. had a lawyer. 2nd offense.. the last one was 25 years ago. I am 66 years old, have high blood pressure and cancer. sentence. 60 days with RAM, 1 year revoked license, dui school, fines, court cost. then after 1 year.... blower in car for 2 years.....,.. A bit harsh I think.. I understand the severity of a dui,,, am willing to jump through all the hoops but How can I not have a license. I can not work, support myself, pay any bills let alone fines and cannot get myself to my doctors appts or treatment appointments. Does this sound excessive to you??? my lawyer told me the night before the trial date that he had beat up the prosecutor (figuratively speaking)recently and now he wanted me to do jail time. My lawyer said he made this DEAL to keep me from going to jail........ I am not so sure it was a good deal since I will be homeless when I cannot get to work to make money to pay my bills.Please advise.

My friend and I left Steak and Shake and a policman was behind me I thought he wanted to pass because he was driving quickly so I changed lanes. He didnt pass so I returned to the lane I was in and he pulled me over because he said I was swerving. Then I had to take 2 sobriety tests. I passed the first 3, but when it came to the one you had to hold your leg up for a certain amount of time, I couldnt because I was injured in jujitsu class a few days go, bruised my ribs and hurt my leg. I didn't go to the doctor because I have no insurance.Then they read me my rights and handcuffed me. When iI was handcuffed in the car they asked me if I wanted to blow and I said no. They proceeded to take me to jail. I bonded out this morning. This happened early this morning. My court date is June 6th.

(Destin, Florida) Okaloosa county

 I received a dui on December 13th 2009. I had to serve 10 days in jail, a years probation, court fines and costs, dui school and community service. All of these requirements were successfully completed. I am now eligible for a drivers license, however I must have an interlock device installed in my vehicle prior to reinstating my drivers license. I have only enough money to reinstate license $425.00. The law in Florida tells me that I must have interlock device installed prior to reinstatement. Until this step is completed, I am not eligible for reinstatement. Its tough. It will be $200 to have interlock device installed and $65 a month for at least a year. I have been told two stories. One person says until March 2012. and another says it will be two years, which is March 2013. This is coming from the DMV of Florida. I have to take my newborn to his doctor appointment this Friday. His father is working and will be unable to drive him there. So, I am desperate !!! If for some reason I get pulled over, what happens to me ? Does it depend on the officer ? I need to know what my rights are, as if in the event something goes awry. Can you help me with this matter, so that I may be prepared for the worst. I DONT WANT TO GO TO JAIL THANKYOU FOR YOUR CONCERN

(Belleview, Florida) Marion county

Well its been about 5 months since i got a dui. I was speeding and went up a hill and loss control of my vehicle and hit a tree and totalled my car. But anyway my question is they voided out getting my vehicle impounded for 10 days since i showed proof that it was total. But recently i just talk to my probation counselor and it shows a vehicle in my name which is a car i gave my mom 3 years. Just never changed out the title but regardless they want to try and impound that car and its her only source of transportation and yes legally its still my car but i havent driven that car in 3 years. So my counselor told me what i can do is have my mom write a letter to the district attorney and explain the situation.

(Winter Park, Florida) Orange county

I was driving home from downtown Orlando. My home is in Winter Park. I was driving I-4 and got off at the fairbanks exit. At that point there was a red light but I was going to take a right. I came to a complete stop and also used my blinker before going. I will say that there is a sign that says "NO TURN ON RED", however it is not all that noticeable. No cars were on the road so I proceeded to take the right turn. At this point I have not been swurving or showing any signs if drunk driving. The officer pulled me over and I safely pulled into a parking lot, still using proper traffic laws by again using my blinkers and coming to a complete and safe stop. The officer would ask for license and registration, I proceeded to give them to him. I did have to look for the registration as for some reason it wasn't with my other info. He then asked me to step out of the car and I did and lasked me to walk the parking line back and forth. I did this without any trouble and the officer n everindicated that I passed or failed. He then made me follow a light. So I did. Once again not showing any signs of impairment. The officer again did not indicate if I passed or failed. As a final test, the officer asked me to stand with one leg upa nd count, one one-thousand, two one-thousand, etc. I stood balanced until we got to 30, I did repeat 21 twice by accident but I got a little toungue tied. The officer then cuffs me and brings me in. He did use a breath test on me and the results were .170-.2. Although that is very high, at no point did I stumble or drive unsafely. Do I have a case here?

(Miami, Florida) Miami Dade county

I was recently arrested for dui after I had an accident. I attempted to exit the I-95 freeway off of 125th. When I had realized I had to turn it was too late. I attempted to make a right turn and ended up across the street on the front lawn of someones house and knocked down 2 palm trees which were about 6-7ft in height.

(Winter Haven, Florida) Polk county

Got pulled over for having loud music more than 25 ft. windows where all down. 2 officers approached my truck one on each side one asked for my DL. As i looked for it ..the passenger side officer accused me of running from them.i said no i wasnt. then he asked me how much i had to drink he said he could smell it.. then pointed at my cologne bottle and was like well whats this..(he thought it was a alchohol bottle). but i showed him it was cologne. i could not find my drivers license . so they had me wait in truck while they went back and ran my tag.. i had made 2 phone calls because i was sure they was going to charge me for dui. during theses 2 calls both people i talked to could here the officers yelling at me..at one point one officer told me to put the phone away and called me a @sshole.the person that i was on the phone that heard this actually called 911 and told them what he had heard. about 10 min later a third officer came. And had me do a sobriety test . to me i pa ssed itwith flying colors. although i got arrested for dui. once in booking i refused the breathalyzer. i had asked the officer if i was recorded doing the feild sobriety test and he said no i wasnt. i also asked him how he determined i was drinking from the feild sobriety test ..his comment was from many years of experience. when i was in booking he was asking me questions name,birthday ect i geuss for booking. i wasnt sure if i had to answer anything any of these at this point and i asked him if he has read me my rights and he said he hasnt and that he didnt have to...that the things he was aking wasnt for anything but booking information. and to me recolection he never did read me my rights all night. that was all the conversation i had with the officer in booking. so.. i was charged with misdimeanor for refusal and dui. i also got 2 tickets one for the music and one for failure to provide Dl.. this could possibly be my third conviction. my second conviction was 9 years 5 months ago.so i think im looking at a felony charge. I have alot to loose here, i have a good job and my record has been clean for a long time. any help here would be appreciated. thank you

Hi, approximatly 20 years ago my husband was given a traffic fine for speeding. At the time it was $100 which was a lot of money and he was advised by the police officer not to pay it. He has been to the states since but not to Florida where the fine was accrued. I have tried looking into the law etc but it appears to be a mine field so i was hoping you may have a better idea. I have emaild the embassy in London to no avail.

(Fort Lauderdale, Florida) Broward county

In college I received a zero tolerance when I was 20. The arresting officer (this happened on campus, so it was a campus cop) told me once I turned 21 this would be expunged from my record. I was wondering how to see if it has been or not. I have not received any information on the matter and the DMV said they had no record of it as well. Please get back to me as this is regarding what I need to disclose on my law school applications

(Tampa, Florida) Hillsborough county

Sir/Madam, I was arrested for dui back in 1993 in Pasco County, FL. I went to court and paid the fines. I did not take the driving safety class though. I just found out that this has caused a warrant on me. I spoke with an officer about the case and they said I need to go down to Florida to take the class. Is there a way to take the class online or in my area of Arlington, VA?

(Homestead, Florida) Miami Dade county

i was already at my destination when the officer put the lights on, He asked why was i on the grass, i told him i was at my destination already. He stated i pasted a stop sign and that i was swerving down the road and stated he smwlled the alcohol coming from my breath. I did not passed a stop sign, i was with my father in law and his friend who where both in the car with me. he asked me to do several test in the middle of the road. I think i passed but he statedthat i did not. Driving to the station he mentions that i am a good guy and he should have not arrested me. At the station he was doing his paper work and asking me alot of questions, but most of all he was texting on his blackberry the whole time. he then tells me about the breathalizer exam, being my first time i did not know anything and was taking his advice. He mentioned alot of people refuse it but doing so will cost more fines and instead of just doing 8hrs in jail to get bonded out i could be required to do mo re, soi blew. I have never been arrested nor ever had a dui. When i was in jail it was when i was told that the best thing for me to do was refuse the breath test. I wish i knew, My wife is currently pregant and due on the 19th of this month. I need my license and it is extremely important to me. Any help would be grratly appreciated. Thank you

(Orlando, Florida) Orange county

I'm 19. A full time student. Bumped into a car and drove away. Driver of that car ran me down and stopped me. I did not know I had bumped his car. Police were called. I was drunk, did not have my license or insurance available. When cops arrived, I was outside of locked vehicle with keys in pocket. 3:00 am. Was given the field test, then taken to jail, given the breath test at 5:30am. BAC by this time was .208. 1st offense ever. Clueless as to what to do. Will I face jail time? How will I go to college if in jail? No money to hire a lawyer, parents are broke with paying for college, etc. Will this dui be on my record for life? How can I not go to jail for this. I am devastated!!!

(Jacksonville, Florida) Duval county

I have a new york driver license and got a dui in florida. I went to our team build and had couple of drinks on dec 17th, 2010. Like at 12:30 i planned to go back home. On my way home i was not feeling good. So i pulled my car to the left and then parked it. After like 10 min i saw cop car pulled behind me and flashed lights. And asked me if i had any drinks and as he could smell alcohol from me. After that i had to do the alcohol test and then he arrested me and took to the JSO and i gave the breath test. My alcohol content was above 0.15. I was taken to the court and the judge had given time to consult with the state attorney. When i spoke to her she said as your alcohol content is above 0.15 so you will not be able to get off dui. So i said i was guilty and no contest to the judge. And i got a fine of 1000, 10 days of immobilize the car, 50 hour of community service, early termination of probation, six month license and six month the air blow thing installed in the car.Now i have couple of questions:1. I was driving a rental vehicle as Gieco was fixing my car at the auto-body store. Do i need to immobilize my car for 10 days as i was driving the rental car?2. After i get the car immobilized for 10 days and attend the dui classes. Will i be eligible for the Hardship License (just to travel to work)?3. Could you please explain me the different option that i have to get the Hardship License?Thanks

(Delray Beach, Florida) Palm Beach county

I had a glass of wine during lunch around 1PM. Went home and relaxed, watched TV and took a quick nap. I was in bed, in my PJ's when I got hungry and ordered some food from a place about 5 blocks away. Went to pick up the food. A car started to block me and I couldn't change lanes. She was speeding and cutting me off. I feared it was a set up and decided to make the turn by cutting through the parking lot but she sped up again and cut me off. I lost control of the car and hit a light pole. No one else was injured but me. I was not offered medical help by police, I was accused of being drunk (I wasn't drinking) and doing drugs (not either) and implied that I was a "night lady". I was denied to give my statement and to speak at all, unless he asked me a question. I was told to shut my mouth when I tried to tell what happened. i requested a K9 to prove i wasn't doing drugs, denied. I requested to have all the events viseo taped, denied, I requested a breath test at the scene, de nied, Iasked for water and a cracker due to my severe low blood pressure condition and heart condition, denied. I used to work for the DMV and do charity for the police. I have a spotless record. I crashed to avoid hitting the crazy driver as she had a child in the back. I was accused of fleeing the scene by the one guy who came out of no where screaming at me. How could I have fled the scene if I was there when the officer handed me the citation? I want to fight this.

I am writting this for my son jeff. He is in Jail in Tampa FL. This is his first dui arrest. He refused to blow into a breathalizer per his mother's previous advise. My current wife thought that that was good advise as well.He was driving through a road construction area around 10 at night and drove over some reflectors and watched the police follow him. Upon request he produced some Xanix from his pocket but did not have the perscription with him. They charged him with a felony for that. He has since produced the perscription, but has not yet had a hearing.Jeff was on parole for an aggravated stocking case in Pinellas county. But I SHOULDN'T THINK that has anything to do with this traffic stop and dui charge.Help.

(miami, Florida) Miami Dade county

I got arrested in 03/2009 of a dui where they immediately suspended my license for 45 days after that then they suspended my lic for 6 mths. I went and got a hardship issued. My actual license tat i got after the 45 days when i got the d6 clearance then expired just July 2010. So I served the suspension then continued with my license regularly. However, my case wasnt over until Sept 2010 where they convicted my of the dui and issued a 6 mth license suspension again. Is this another 6 mth period or have I already served that?! Confused?!!?
