Drivers’ License Suspension
After being charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is likely that your drivers’ license will be suspended. However, in some circumstances, it may be possible to get a hardship permit that allows you to drive. If you hire an expert OUI attorney like one of the legal professionals from the Law Offices of Brett Levy P.C., your chances of getting such a permit are greatly increased, and you may be able to get back on the road sooner.
Ignition Interlock Devices
For an OUI charge, after the second or greater offense, you will be ordered to install an ignition interlock device, or IID, on your vehicle. This device is a breath analyzer that is attached inside the vehicle and which requires the driver to blow into the mouthpiece to determine the breath alcohol content, or BAC. If the device shows that your BAC is above the state cutoff level, the device, which is connected to the vehicle’s ignition, will not allow your car to start. The state cutoff level is 0.02%. This information will also be passed on to a state monitoring system.
