Default Dui in vehicle that's broke down.

In a situation where a vehicle is in limp mode( computer locks the transmission into a low gear), and the driver is pulling off onto the shoulder before the vehicle is virtually unoperable. I understand you can be charged with dui, but what kind of things can a lawyer do to get it dropped down? Or better yet how could you fire your worthless PD and take care of it yourself. This happened in St John's county FL.

You were in the car, behind the wheel, in control of the vehicle. Doesn't matter if the car was parked with you in it. I'm sure a lawyer can do a lot of things. Whether it gets dropped down is anybody's guess.

You give him a letter saying he's fired.

You mean without a lawyer? That would be foolish. But good luck with it.

Worthless why? Because you were caught dead-to-rights and have no defense, so you blame the PD for not getting you off?
