Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Downey, CA
California is one of many states that has admin per se or administrative penalties for a DUI charge. Admin per se penalties are ordered directly by the Department of Motor Vehicles and occur during your arrest when you fail or refuse to take a chemical test.
The arresting officer immediately confiscates your license, which is sent to the DMV along with the officer’s report. The officer will then issue an order of suspension and a temporary license. The DMV will review all information, during which time you may request a hearing. It should be noted that admin per se penalties are entirely separate from other criminal penalties you may suffer for driving under the influence.
You will generally face much harsher penalties for refusing to take a test than for failing your chemical test. On your first offense, you may suffer a one-year suspension for refusing to take a test. For your second offense, your license can be revoked for up to two years. For third and subsequent offenses, your license may be revoked for up to three years.
Along with administrative penalties, criminal penalties for a first offense DUI in California may include:
- Up to six months in jail
- About $1,000 in fines, which does not include court fees and other fines
- A license reissuing fee of $125
- Enrollment in a DUI program
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
Los Angeles County is one of four counties currently participating in a pilot program that requires the installation of an ignition interlock device for any DUI convictions. The period during which you must use an IID depends on your offense and blood alcohol concentration. You are responsible for paying for all maintenance and monitoring fees during that time.
