Utah has become increasingly strict in DUI and drunk driving cases involving alcohol consumption as well as the consumption of controlled substances. Under Utah’s “Alcohol Restricted Driver Law,” drivers may be placed under alcohol-restricted driving status for a variety of reasons. It is also possible for individuals with out-of-state licenses who have had a DUI conviction to be restricted from driving with any amount of alcohol in their system.
At the Law Offices of David Paul White and Associates, we are keenly aware of the laws that govern ignition interlock devices in Salt Lake City and the ways that these devices are used in criminal DUI cases. To best defend yourself against the consequences of a DUI charge, work with a law firm that has decades of experience to back you up.
In alcohol restriction cases, courts may order an ignition interlock system be installed in a DUI offender’s vehicle. If an offender is found to have an order to use an ignition interlock system, but is operating a vehicle that does not have one installed, his or her driver’s license could be revoked for one year or more, depending on the circumstances. This kind of restriction could be brought about for a number of reasons, including:
- Having a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher
- Refusing to submit to a chemical test
- Reckless driving related to alcohol consumption
- Impaired driving due to alcohol consumption
- Vehicular homicide
- Alcohol-restricted driver violations
