NEW LAW: First-time DUI offenders must have ignition interlock devices on vehicles

Shelton, Conn —

A bill-signing ceremony took place Aug. 11 to commemorate the ratification of a new law that will require ignition interlocking devices be installed on vehicles of first-time DUI offenders beginning in mid- 2015.

The new law, which takes effect July 1, 2015, makes a number of changes intended to deter driving under the influence (DUI). This includes strengthening the state’s ignition interlock requirements by authorizing the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to administratively require the devices be installed on cars of first-time DUI offenders.
