The Department of Public Safety may cancel a person’s driver’s license when it deems that the person operating the vehicle is inimical to public safety. Inimical to public safety essentially means that a person is unable to control a vehicle without endangering others and often occurs after a driver’s third DWI offense in a ten year period or a 4th DWI throughout their lifetime. This may present a lot of questions and doubt, so having an experienced and professional criminal defense attorney Minnesota on your team will be vital to the success of your case.
Drivers deemed inimical to public safety must go through a rigorous chemical dependency treatment program in order to have their driver’s license reinstated. In addition, the renewed license will be subject to a B-Card Restriction, prohibiting the driver from any use of alcohol.
Any violation of this restriction will lead to a revocation of the person’s driver’s license and subsequent rehabilitation periods as well as criminal charges and penalties.
