If arrested for Driving While Intoxicated, the Police Department will take and hold the car used. This is called a "forfeiture hold" and may lead to a "forfeiture case" about the car, money, or other property separate from the criminal case.

This folder contains information on these and other collateral consequences of DUI/DWIs.
