Retain Your Driving Privileges
In the state of Kansas, your license can be suspended or revoked for a repeat driving under the influence (DUI) or serious traffic violation. Since there are no hardship license provisions in the state of Kansas, you will not be allowed to drive at all for the duration of your license suspension. In some cases, the state could decide to reinstate your driver’s license after you petition for it.
However, in order to have your driver’s license reinstated, you will be required to prove that you are ready to drive responsibly. Seeking alcohol or drug counseling and enrolling in a driver’s education program can increase your chances of having your license reinstated. The lawyer at the Stone Law Office defends and counsels people who have had their driver’s licenses suspended or revoked. Depending on the circumstances of your case, attorney Gary D. Stone may be able to convince the court to reduce the sentence against you or reinstate your license.
If you’ve been arrested for DUI or a serious traffic offense, contact criminal defense lawyer Stone today to schedule an appointment and discuss your case.
Traffic Offenses And A Suspended Driver’s License
The Stone Law Office provides representation to people facing driver’s license suspension due to the following:
- Drunk driving
- Repeat DUI
- Passing a loading or unloading school bus
- Excessive speeding
- Reckless endangerment
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
Ignition Interlock Device And Suspended Licenses
In some cases, the court may decide to reinstate or forestall the suspension of a person’s license on the condition that they install an ignition interlock device. This device is installed in your care and functions like a breath test. In order for your car to start and continue functioning, you must blow in to the ignition interlock device. If your breath registers less than .02% blood alcohol content (BAC), then your car will start and continue functioning as your drive.
Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, Mr. Stone may be able to convince the court to order the installation of an ignition interlock device in lieu of suspending your license. While you will have to pay for the installation of the device and have it calibrated according to a service schedule, you can at least continue driving as needed.
