About Nitrous Oxide and Motor Vehicle Charges
Columbus Nitrous Oxide Defense
The laws in the state of Ohio are extremely strict regarding the use of Nitrous Oxide in a vehicle. When you buy the gas, you are required to sign a form that informs you that you are not allowed to use it in the operation of a motor vehicle. The seller of the nitrous oxide is required to keep receipts and names of any person who bought the gas for 2 years. If you are found to have used the gas in the operation of a vehicle, you will not only likely be charged with a street racing charge, but you will be charged with falsification, misdemeanor of the first degree. It is crucial that you get legal representation from a Columbus nitrous oxide defense lawyer at once if you have been arrested and charged with this offense.
