What to Do If You Receive an Order to Impound Your Vehicle License Plates in Minnesota
Published By:
Category: DWI/DUI

Because Minnesota DUI and DWI law is so strict and unforgiving, if a police officer orders that your vehicle license plates be impounded, you need the help of a Minnesota Criminal Attorney immediately.  Do not wait to see what happens.  You only have 30 days to challenge the impound order.  There are no exceptions and there is not a grace period.

 

The consequence of having vehicle license plates impounded affects everyone who has access to the car.  If the car wasn’t yours, the owner is still liable and unless he acts quickly by getting the help of a Minnesota Law Firm, the impound will last for a minimum of one year.  The plates will be replaced with “whiskey plates” which are special plates starting with the letter “W.”  While a police officer cannot stop you solely because your car has “whiskey plates” it does draw more attention to you on the road by law enforcement.

 

In addition, selling the car becomes practically impossible.  It is also a crime for the driver to operate any other vehicle except the vehicle with the impounded plates.  If the driver tries to remove the “whiskey” plates or doesn’t comply with the impound order in any way, they can be arrested.

 

If you receive an order of impound you need the immediate help of Minnesota DWI Lawyer Christopher Keyser by calling (612) 338-5007 or visiting www.keyserdefense.com.
