My mother is almost 91 and lives in California. Can I drive her car there with no breathalyzer? She sometimes needs to be driven.
Not without the courts permission. It does not matter if it is her car, as it is your drivers license that would be checked by any police officer who pulled you over. You may be able to petition the Utah court for a temporary hardship license, but I am not licensed in Utah, so am not sure about their regulations regarding interlock devices and hardship leniency. A Utah DUI attorney can readily help and many offer a free initial consultation, why not contact one to find out your options.
My disclaimer is simply that Avvo already has an adequate disclaimer.
My recommendation, if you want to be on the level with this, is to request a hearing on whatever court you're currently on probation for. Ask the judge to order that you be given special permission to drive your mother around or to run errands for her.
The DLD will have to approve of it, but they likely will comply with a court order.
