The following outlines specific components of the law.

Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) Requires courts to impose suspensions for BAC ARDs based on the following BAC ranges:

Less than .10% - no suspension,
.10% to less than .16 - 30 day suspension, or
.16% and above - 60 day suspension
License Suspensions

Suspensions will be imposed as follows:

DUI Treatment and Evaluation

Treatment and evaluation processes are geared to rehabilitation. -Effective - Phased-In Through 2009

Ignition Interlock

Drivers who receive a second or subsequent DUI violation on or after September 30, 2003, can no longer serve an additional one year suspension in lieu of obtaining an ignition interlock device. Drivers are required to install ignition interlock on all vehicles owned (including leased) before driving privileges can be restored.

Additionally, the following exemptions and penalties have been added:

Financial Hardship Exemption: Drivers may apply for an exemption from the requirement to install the ignition interlock device on all of their vehicles. If the exemption is granted, ignition interlock installation will only be required on one vehicle.
Employment Exemption: Under certain circumstances, ignition interlock restricted drivers may operate employer owned vehicles but only in the course and scope of employment. The employee must notify the employer of the ignition interlock restriction and carry proof of employer notification on a PennDOT form. The employer owned vehicle cannot be a school bus/vehicle or large passenger vehicle.
Ignition Interlock Violations: Individuals convicted of driving without or tampering with the ignition interlock device will have their ignition interlock period extended 12 month from the date of conviction for the first offense and will have their driving privileges suspended for 12 months for the second or subsequent offenses. Upon restoration they must comply with ignition interlock for 12 months. Individuals, whose driving privileges are suspended during the ignition interlock period for a non-ignition interlock violation, must complete the ignition interlock period upon restoration.
Occupational Limited Licenses (OLL's) First time DUI offenders may be eligible for an OLL after serving 60 days of their suspension. Individuals whose licenses are suspended for 18 months (for DUI or refusing breath or chemical testing) and have no more than one prior offense may be eligible for an OLL with an ignition interlock after serving 12 months of their suspension. In addition, first time underage drinking violators may be eligible for an OLL.

Expungement of Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition (ARD) Records PennDOT will automatically expunge ARD records after 10 years providing a person's operating privileges were not revoked as a habitual offender and/or the person was not a commercial driver at the time of the violation.

Credit (Suspension)

Individuals suspended for driving a vehicle not equipped with an ignition interlock device or driving under a DUI-related suspension, with a BAC of .02% or greater cannot receive credit for their suspension until jail time has been served.

Implied Consent/Breath or Chemical Testing Suspensions for individuals who refuse to submit to breath or chemical testing may be increased. Breath or chemical testing may now be required for individuals who are arrested for driving under a DUI-related suspension or driving without an ignition interlock device.

* "Per se" is a Latin phrase that means "by itself." Evidence that a person drove, operated or was in control of a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08% or higher is enough by itself to convict the person of DUI. A person with BAC less than .08% might still be convicted of DUI is there is evidence that he or she imbibed enough alcohol to make him or her incapable of safely driving, operating or being in control of a motor vehicle.

Do I Have A Personal Injury Claim???
I Was At A Friends House And Slipped Down Her Stairs (Wooden Flooring That For Sure 3 Other People Have Slipped On). I Broke My Ankle And Tore A Ligament Resulting In The Ligament Having To Be Sewn Back And A Plate And 10 Screws Put In To Hole The Bone. I Lost My Job And Underwent Alot Of Pain And Suffering. I Was In A Wheelchair For 2Weeks And On Painful Crutches For 5 Weeks Now. Do I Have A Claim With Her Homeowners Ins And How Will She Be Effected If I Do Sue And How Much Is This Claim Worth????

Yes, you have a claim. You may have impaired it somewhat by not immediately requesting her to forward it to her insurance company. Normally, claims must be made within 30 days of the occurrence, but that is not a hard and fast rule.

Her insurance company provides her an attorney and a defense for free, and pays your claim to the limits of their liability, less any deductible. She may suffer a cancellation of the policy or a raise in rates.

You should get a personal injury attorney immediately--the sooner the better. And find one that will act fast. They need to send your neighbor a certified, return receipt letter w/in a day of the time you leave their office.

Make sure you take your medical bills, talk about pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, lost earning capacity, disfigurement, and any other damage area with the attorney so he can make the proper demand in the letter.

** Note: This is a general discussion of the subject matter of your question and not legal advice. Local laws or your particular situation may change the general rules. For a specific answer to your question you should consult legal counsel with whom you can discuss all the facts of your case. Answering this question does not indicate an attorney-client relationship. **

Missouri Family Law (Child Support Guidelines)?
I Was Just Wondering Where I Could Find Detailed Information On The Missouri Law Regarding Child Support Calculations. I Know In Texas They Have A Maximum Of $7500/Mo Resources That They Can Base Child Support On. Which Means That The Maximum Child Support Paid On 2 Children For Someone'S Whose Resources Are $7500 Or More Is $1875 (Granted There Are No Other Children), Because The State Doesn'T Consider The Other Parent'S Income, Just A Percentage Of The Non-Custodial. However, I Know The Mo Considers Both Parent'S Income And What Not, So I Was Wondering If There Is A Maximum Child Support Obligation That Someone Would Pay For 2 Children. Thanks!
