Q: I was under the influence of alcohol and crashed car into a ditch but not arrested or charged when out on bond

Does the prosecutor get accident reports? And if so why no warrant or citation?

Timothy Denison answered on Dec 4, 2021

The warrant and/or citation could still come. They could still be investigating. Hopefully, the prosecutor doesn’t see your post since you just admitted to driving under the influence in it. Might be a good idea to take it down before anyone else sees it.

Q: I have a Vehicle that is under warranty that has an engine problem. I have receipts of the maintenance done on the car,

Warranty company rejected the claim because the work was not done by a national chain? Can they do that?

Charles Candiano
Charles Candiano answered on Dec 1, 2021

You have a contract with the warranty company. Nobody can answer your question without looking at the contract. The warranty company doesn't want you to go to someone who doesn't know what they are doing, do MORE damage, and then have you come back to them for more service.
