California has some of the toughest DUI laws and penalties in the country, and they’re even worse than usual now. If you were arrested during the COVID-19 statewide lockdown, you’re facing escalated penalties.
New California Regulations Regarding Ignition Interlock Devices
Were you aware that California recently instituted new regulations concerning ignition interlock devices (IIDs)? The state now says these devices, which are personal breathalyzers, can be placed in your car after your first DUI conviction.
Here is what the new regulations say about the placement of an IIDs in your car:
- Six months for a first DUI offense
- One year for a second DUI offense
- Two years for a third DUI offense
- Three years for fourth and subsequent DUI offenses
The IID punishment would be added to the harsh fines and license suspensions that the state typically asses on DUI charges. For example, on your first DUI conviction in California you could receive:
- Up to $2,000 in fines
- Up to six months in jail
- Up to a one-year license suspension
Arrested During the Coronavirus Statewide Lockdown?
If you were you arrested during the current state-wide Coronavirus lockdown, your punishments could get even more severe! Courts are coming down harder on DUI offenders while the lockdown is in place, with higher bail and other penalties. With the pandemic, it’s even more vital to avoid jail time.
The order reads: “Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (California Health and Safety Code 120295, et seq,)." That means you could get an even higher fine and a longer jail sentence!
