Drunk Driving Stop & Snatch Law
DRUNK DRIVING STOP & SNATCH LAW
In our premiere issue of the Wolf Report (Fall 1990), we strongly advocated the implementation of the provision to the new Stop and Snatch Law whereby first offenders would still be allowed to drive to and from work. At that time, no provisions were made permitting first time offenders to continue to drive in the course of their employment.
Those provisions that we advocated have now been enacted. First time drunk driving offenders who have had their licenses revoked by the DMV for four months, may now apply for and receive a restricted drivers license from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Upon proof of insurance, payment of a $100 fee and enrollment in a first offender program, that first time offender may now receive a restricted drivers license which permits them to drive to and from and during their course of employment as well as their alcohol program. Other defenses continue to be developed on a daily basis.
CONTESTING RADAR TICKETS STILL FOOLPROOF IN L.A.
Illegal speed traps still exist in some parts of Los Angeles County. Outdated engineering surveys are still being received as inadmissible evidence in some courts. As explained in a previous issue of the Wolf Report (Fall 1991), the court cannot receive any testimony regarding these violations. These cases still remain a guaranteed winner!
INSURANCE FRAUD PLACES ATTORNEYS UNDER SEIGE
The targeting of attorneys by police stings continues to flourish. The successful prosecution of alleged fraudulent activity by attorneys and doctors has been an encouraging force to law enforcement resulting in an expanding financial warchest, which continues to feed the prosecution of doctors and lawyers for insurance fraud.
Take precautions dont become the target of one of these stings! Watch out for the red flag signs of a staged accident (see Wolf Report, Fall 1993).
