Guidelines for an Ignition Interlock Device in CT

Connecticut laws state that anyone who has been arrested for a DUI violation may be ordered to not operate a motor vehicle unless it is equipped with an alcohol ignition interlock system. Anyone convicted of a DUI must serve a license suspension of up to 45 days or until they turn 21 (whichever is longer). After this suspension period, you are required to install an ignition interlock device for one to three years based on prior drunk driving offenses. For first offenses, you are prohibited from driving a vehicle without an ignition interlock device for 1 year. For a second offense that happens within 10 years of your first offense, you may not be allowed to operate a vehicle without an approved IID in CT for up to 3 years.

After your interlock device installation, you must bring the vehicle to the installer every 30 days to re-calibrate the ignition interlock device. Failure to do so will lead to a suspension of your license. Any tampering with the ignition interlock system, either by trying to remove it without authorization or having another person blow into it, will also lead to a suspension.

Connecticut DUI Penalties

For first-time offenders, a DUI can lead to jail time of two days to six months with up to $1,000 in fines. A second offense can result in a jail sentence of 120 days to two years and a fine of up to $4,000. Third and subsequent offenses can lead to up to 3 years of jail time and $8,000 in fines. You may also be required to serve up to 100 hours of community service. Second and third offenses may also lead to vehicle confiscation or impounding or a permanent license suspension.
