Ignition Interlock Device Laws in South El Monte, CA
In California, most DUI charges are subject to the installation of ignition interlock devices, or car breathalyzers, in all vehicles you own and operate. This is preceded by two different types of suspensions. A DUI can result in an administrative suspension. This comes from the DMV and can occur immediately at the time of your arrest if your blood alcohol concentration exceeds the legal limit of 0.08 or if you refuse to take a breath test. During this suspension, you will be given a temporary 30-day license to get your affairs in order before your court date.
Along with an administrative suspension, you may need to serve a suspension sentenced by the criminal court after a trial or plea agreement. The length of this suspension and the penalties that come with it depend on how many previous DUI offenses you have on your record in the last 10 years. This is further complicated by the fact that DUI’s in California can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, though generally most DUI’s are charged as misdemeanors and thus come with lighter penalties.
For your first DUI offense, you may serve a suspension of up to six months, and you can apply for a restricted license at the court’s decision. For second offenses, the suspension period lasts up to two years with a chance to apply for a restricted license after 90 days. Your third offense comes with a suspension period of three years, though you may apply for a restricted license after 18 months. Fourth and subsequent DUI offenses require a suspension of four years with a chance to apply for a restricted license after 18 months.
