New DUI Laws

Recent DUI Legislation

Over the past few years, several new DUI laws have been enacted. This includes a new zero tolerance law for any drivers on probation for a DUI conviction that get behind the wheel with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.01% or higher. If you are on probation, and refuse to take a breath or blood test after being pulled over by law enforcement, you will be subject to license suspension or revocation for a period of one to three years.

Residents in this area who have been previously convicted of DUI, including first time offenses, are also now legally required to install an Ignition interlock device (IID) in order to obtain a restricted driver's license. IIDs are mini-breathalyzer instruments that prevent a vehicle from operating unless the driver provides an alcohol-free breath sample. Judges can also order drivers convicted of DUI with a BAC of only 0.15% to install an IID on their vehicle.

Restricted licenses can now be obtained by a person found guilty of DUI for a second time after their 90-day license suspension, as well as third-time offenders after their six month license suspension. In both cases the driver must enroll in a DUI program, and an IID in their vehicle. Restricted licenses allow a person to drive to and from work, school and court-ordered alcohol and drug treatment programs.
