New CT DUI Laws Shorten License Suspensions and Mandate Interlocks

A new law in Connecticut makes it mandatory for first-time convicted DUI offenders to have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle. Previous laws required a one-year license suspension for convicted offenders but the new law reduces that to 45 days, plus a year with an ignition interlock. Offenders with two DUI convictions will also serve the 45-day suspension in addition to having an interlock device on their vehicle for three years. The devices cost those convicted about $100 per month, with the cost being paid by the offender, not the state.
