Hello everyone. I obtained my last dwi on oct. 30 2010. I totaled my truck and in doing so broke my neck and tore my spinal cord. I'am now disabled and can no longer work full time. What a PUTZ. I also achieved 2 duai's in my twentys,no felonies.My next shining moment occured in 1997,DWI. Not a felony. So that brings us back to 2010. On feb. 4,2011 I pled guilty to DWI in a neck brace. That's when the fun started. This DWI was not a felony either, I've never had a felony of anykind. I pd. my fine and lost my liscence for a yr. Of course after my yr. was up I sent my 100 bucks and the DMV44 through the snail mail to the lovely,hard working smucks at the DMV thinking I was on trac to get my liscence back.I think you all know what happend next.I was in shock after I read the responce, talk about hitting a brick wall. Sorry punching bag,you're going to have to send another 100&DMV44 in 5yrs. from now.So I hired a lawyer,$1000, knowing it was in vane but I felt I had to try. That is when my lawyer informed me about a class action suit possibly taking place. I could'nt afford it,I gave up and decided to do my time. Fastforward to last aug. My time was up and I could apply for my liscence. I then got on my computer and looked into the process and found out that I had to get counseling. NO big suprize to me but it put the Ahole process off another 6 mo's. I should have checked into this before last aug. my fault, but I guess this whole thing is my fault. So,I finished counseling and was now able to attempt the snail mail once again this feb. It's very funny that this time they got back to me in 7wk's, about 3wk's ago! I guess they had no reason to sit on it this time. I was afraid to open the damn thing . Well, they gave me the go ahead to start the liscence process,YEA! Of course you have to start from the begining , permit, safty course, drivers test. I knew that would be the case. I also figured I would have to get the interlock device, and I do. The cost of the one I picked is $125 install and $100 for monitaring a mo. I was ***angry when I found out that it was for 5 yrs. , but I guess I should be thankfull they did'nt tell me to s**t up a rope! THE REAL KICKER is that they are only going to give me a resricted liscence for another 5 yrs. Can only drive to work,doctor,DMV,interlock appt's. and the bar. Just kidding about the bar. I guess I don't need food or some kind of life! Please keep in mind that I had no felonies, who knowes what they will do to people that do! I'am a disabled 56 yr. old man that lives alone out in the boondocks of the finger lakes. Had to rely on friends, still do, for everything. Running short on friends. Anyway, my middle finger is getting tired of typing & flipping off DMV so I guess I'll go for now. P.S. If I can help any of my fellow suffer's please let me know!!!!!
