In days past, someone that was charged with a DUI first offense could petition the court for a hardship license. That hardship license afforded an individual the continuing ability to drive to work, school and/or transport others. Now, the statute has been altered to eliminate that alternative.
Many clients appear and ask what can be done now. Take for example, an individual is stopped and ticketed and refuses any testing relative to a possible DUI charge. The officer charges said individual with DUI refusal and said individual's drivers license is taken immediately. An ignition interlock restricted license is available to allow said individual the driving privilege.
Of course, this requires a fee to be given to Mississippi Department of Public Safety and cost to an approved ignition interlock company.
Don't drink and drive.
