Expensive SR22 auto insurance to avoid

Hawaii drivers whose licenses are in danger of suspension may want to start taking the issue seriously before they head to court. This is because license suspension is only the start of the consequences.

Drivers sometimes believe they can get the court matter over with, pay their dues with a brief loss of license and small fine, and put it all behind them. This is not so.

What is implied consent and how does it apply to DUI arrests?

Implied consent applies when consent is not directly given, but implicitly conceded by circumstances or actions. This means you consented to the possibility of being required to take a breathalyzer when you got behind the wheel.

What happens if you drive without a license in Hawaii?

Your license expired a month ago, but you haven’t had a chance to get it renewed. As you drive into work, you hear sirens behind you. Looking down at the speedometer you realize that you are ten miles over the speed limit.

Now you have for two violations – speeding, and driving without a license. You know that speeding will probably result in a ticket, but what happens if you drive without a license in Hawaii?

The two parts of a DUI arrest in Hawaii

If you were recently arrested for a DUI, you are probably anxious about what will happen next. The consequences of a DUI are severe, affecting your life for years, so it is crucial to have a strong defense for your case. Hawaii DUI cases happen in two parts: an administrative and a criminal hearing. Here is an overview of what these hearings mean for you.

An introduction to SR-22

When it comes to driving, most people are doing their best to drive as safely as possible. However, whether it is done intentionally or not, unsafe driving does happen. The possibility of injury and damage is one of the main reasons the state of Hawaii requires drivers to have car insurance.

Because vehicles have the potential to cause large amounts of damage to people and their property, the law takes safe driving very seriously. There are penalties for different driving offenses and some of them can require drivers to file for a SR-22.
