My roommate here has a problem and I figure the OG could help him out.

He got a DUI earlier this year.
Since then, his safety check and his insurance both got expired. Here's the funny part, the insurance company is going to charge him something like $2000 for six months of coverage!!! All he wants to do is sell the car but he read somewhere that you can't sell a vehicle w/o a safety check. What should he do?

The dude looks like Harold from Harold & Kumar... He's had enough misfortune in his life, help the dude out.

have the car inspected to pass state inspection & have them give you all the paperwork when they are done. provide that paperwork when you sell the car. Should cost $12-$20 depending on where you go.

Post the car on craigslist with pics after cleaning it up.

 Ohio DUI for Walking a Bicycle

In December 2004 in Columbus, Ohio, Jeff Brown was reportedly walking his bicycle across his front yard when he was approached by a police officer who told him he was breaking the law because he did not have a headlight on his bicycle, according to a report by Reason Magazine. While the officer was writing Brown a ticket for this infraction, he smelled alcohol on Brown's breath. Because of Ohio's Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated (OVI) law, the operation of bicycles, golf carts, wheelchairs and other non-vehicles while intoxicated can result in a DUI arrest. Brown refused to take a breath test and spent four days in jail. His driver's license was also suspended for six months as a result of his Ohio DUI arrest for walking a bicycle. He pleaded no contest to Ohio OVI and was convicted but later appealed. An Ohio appeals court upheld the conviction.


Dolphin DUI

In Kent, England, two drunken guys left a pub and tried to get a ride home from a bottlenose dolphin. No, this isn't the beginning of a bad joke, it really happened according to a Courier Mail report. Michael Jukes and Daniel Buck were arrested when they ignored the signs warning them not to bother a dolphin that had been swimming near the shore. The guys grabbed onto the dolphin and tried to take it for a ride before being caught by police and arrested.

DUI Is Child's Play

A teenager was arrested for DUI after jumping on a child's toy dune buggy and driving a few yards. Anthony Ware didn't get far on the toy before it toppled over on him and police swooped in to give him a breath test and arrest him for DUI. In court the toy was said to be classified as a motor vehicle because it had an electric motor. Police said that they saw the electric dune buggy, with a top speed of 18 mph, zig-zagging down the road at 10:45pm before Ware crashed. Ware pleaded guilty to DUI.

Skateboard DUI

An Australian man was arrested and fined $270 for riding his skateboard while under the influence of alcohol. Police spotted 22-year-old Corey Symes weaving through traffic on his skateboard just before midnight while drinking rum. He was stopped and given a breath test and reportedly registered a .095 percent BAC.

prime reasons why people hate cops. aren't there real crimes to worry about than someone walking a bike across a yard? and since when can a cop write a motor vehicle ticket to anyone not on a public road?
