Minnesota: My daughter was borrowing my car when she got a DWI (over twice the legal limit). I submitted a petition for judicial review within 30 days (was not present or a passenger at time of incident, she had a valid license, she is not the owner or co-owner of vehicle). It has been six weeks since submitted the petition and have recieved any ruling. Talked with a DMV worker who stated that we were ineligible for a review because of the level of violation. Is this true?
This is sort of a good question.
But not really.
Because of this:
1) You cant submit a request for judicial review for another person.
2) It appears that there is no real, legit basis for the review anyway.
Earth to mom!
2x the legal limit?
You did not say she was innocent?
What? Where is the injustice here?
Wait . . .I will find something helpful to say .
I dont get it. You actually think your daughter should still be allowed to drive?
Is that it?
OK. I can take your side
She should have a review.
This is a government taking.
If she cannot drive legally, she cannot work
So she is going to drive anyway.
and she is going to get caught, because she has to feed her children.
They are going to take he car.
And then they are going to charge her with driving on a suspended anyway.
It is a waste of time.
That test result was not accurate.
Waste of government resoruces
She needs to have someone review this! my god!
Now - -
If she were innocent....
If she was not drinking.....
and just had a sip of wine and some mouth alcohol detected by the machine that was not properly tested maintained, and calibrated, maybe .. . . maybe . . something there
Maybe she should have a drivers license.
Maybe she should be allowed to work.
But your daughter has to make the demand for a review hearing herself.
Even if late.
But if it is hopeless, I often tell my clients it is better to start the suspension right away. Get it over with ASAP. do not delay. just suffer through. stay out of trouble. drive later.
Wait . . . Are you talking about the IMPOUND of YOUR CAR and HOW TO GET YOUR CAR OUT OF IMPOUND?
If so, I wasted my time . .
Ignore everything I wrote.
I cannot help you get a car back.
