Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Columbus, Nebraska
Nebraska enforces administrative penalties to discourage drunk driving further and punish those who are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. Under administrative laws, which are enforced by the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles, you can receive a license suspension if you either fail or refuse to take a chemical breath test administered by an officer who suspects you may be driving under the influence. At the time of arrest, the officer will confiscate your license and may choose to provide you with a 15-day temporary license.
You can generally expect harsher penalties for refusing the chemical test than for outright failing it. To illustrate, your first offense test failure can result in a 180-day license suspension, while a refusal can immediately result in a one-year license suspension.
Administrative penalties are in addition to any criminal penalties that you may receive if you are charged with a DUI. This means that even if you are not found guilty of a DUI, you are still required to serve your administrative penalties.
Criminal penalties for a DUI can vary from case to case. For a first offense, you can expect:
- Up to 10 days in jail
- A fine of $500
- A license revocation of six months
A second offense can result in:
- Up to 90 days in jail with a mandatory minimum of 30 days
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- A license suspension/revocation of 18 months
Subsequent offenses will result in more jail time, higher fines, and longer revocation periods. You will also be required to install an ignition interlock device to reinstate your license, but you may be allowed to install an ignition interlock device if you need restricted driving privileges during a suspension.
