[caption id="" align="alignright" width="180" caption="Image via Wikipedia"][/caption]Does the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Keep Crash/Accident Records?  How Can I Get  A Copy?

Ohio DUI Law: ALS and Unsworn 2255

State v. Allen, 2010-Ohio-1257, 13-09-25 (OHCA3) Defendant Allen was stopped and arrested for OVI and subsequently tested over 0.08. She was given an unsworn copy of the 2255 and then the officer submitted an unsworn copy of the 2255 to the Court and the BMV. The Tiffin Municipal Court upheld the suspension. The 3rd District Court of Appeals held that the suspension was valid IMMEDIATELY upon testing over and it has nothing to do with the 2255 being sworn or not. In his dissent from this ruling, Judge Rogers states, "I submit that the requirement that BMV Form 2255 be sworn...

It’s That Time Of Year Again…By Eric Peters, Automotive ColumnistHoliday shopping — and holiday traffic checkpoints — are sure signs it’s Christmas. Randomly stopping motorists to look for drunk drivers has been common practice in many states for years now, but enforcement efforts tend to step up around the Christmas/New Year’s holidays. What should you do if you happen to roll up on one of these checkpoints?1) Be sober.The legal threshold defining Driving Under the Influence (DUI) can be as little as .06 BAC (Blood Alcohol Content), a level that can be reached after having consumed just two cocktails at the...

Driving Under Suspension: Security Suspensions and Judgment Suspensions

Ohio Revised Code 4509.37 sets forth the provision of Ohio's Driving Under Suspension law that suspends a license for uninsured drivers involved in an accident involving personal injury, death or property damages exceeding $400.00.  Called a Security Suspension, this suspension is often confused with a Judgment Suspension, which provides the court a powerful weapon to enforce a judgment.  Here, no judgment is necessary.  A violation of this law will result in a suspension of your license until one of the following occurs:Submission of a notarized statement signed by all involved parties indicating a payment arrangement has been made. If the...

Interstate Driver License Compact

The Interstate Driver License Compact is an agreement between 45 member states to exchange arrest information for certain traffic violations, including DUI.  For example, if you are arrested in Ohio for DUI, Ohio will inform your home state.  Your home state may take no action, immediate action or treat the offense as if it occurred in your home state for licensure purposes.  The intended goal of the Compact was to prevent the occurrence of multiple driving records that were “hidden” from other states.  Currently there are five states that are...

Ohio’s Wrongful Entrustment Law

Ohio Court Strikes Down Wrongful Entrustment Charge: The Court of Appeals for the Twelfth District of Ohio last week struck down a "wrongful entrustment" ticket handed to a father who had allowed his son to borrow his Jeep. West Chester Township police were intent on collecting $500 plus court costs from John R. Tranovich because his son Mark's license was suspended on June 21, 2008 when the twenty-year-old took the vehicle. A trial court heard the case and imposed a suspended six-month jail sentence on the father. Ohio's wrongful entrustment law imposes harsh penalties that include the mandatory seizure of...

By Lucas Sullivan Staff Writer Wednesday, October 01, 2008Since 2004, Ohio law has required that judges assign special license plates to drivers with multiple drunken-driving convictions who still need a car.But only 8,500 vehicles bore these "DUI plates" through the end of last year even though 33,000 Ohio drivers have five or more drunken driving convictions, according to the Ohio Department of Public Safety.The reluctance by Municipal Court judges to issue these plates is evident in Montgomery County, which ranks last among Ohio counties with at least 500,000 residents, in the...
