UPDATES: Recently Passed Nevada DUI Laws
Nevada is cracking down again and has enacted new, tough measures that will affect the existing DUI laws. New laws went into effect on October 1, 2018 and they will impact everyone who is charged or arrested going forward into 2019 and beyond. An experienced criminal defense attorney in Nevada should be aware of all new changes to the law and should always stay informed of possible changes on the horizon.
NEW: The Mandatory Interlock Device
DUI offenders 21 and over, arrested with a BAC of .08 or higher, will now be required to have a breath interlock device installed on their vehicle for 90 days. The new law is even more stringent for offenders under the age of 21, requiring interlock for arrested individuals who registered a BAC of just .02. After the court proceeding, should a charged individual be found guilty and convicted, the judge of jurisdiction may require use of the interlock device for an additional 6 months. Prior to this new law, the state of Nevada only required interlock for a BAC of .18 or higher (and only after an actual conviction). Contact Matthew L. Nebeker, Attorney at Law. We are your DUI attorney in Nevada and we’ll help you understand all the new laws and how they affect your case.
And the new law doesn’t stop there. Further expository details outline that failure to install a breath interlock while operating under a restrictive license could result in a license suspension of up to 3 years (first offense) and 5 years for a second or third offense, etc.
NEW: Extended Loss of Driver’s License
Further measures enacted by the Nevada state legislature now require an automatic driver’s license revocation of 185 days for a first time DUI offense in which the offender registers a BAC of .08 or higher. The prior law mandated only a 90-day revocation for a first time offender. However, options may exist for individuals who work, and need a restrictive license in order to drive to and from work; contact your DUI attorney in Nevada to get a complete understanding of how to qualify for a restrictive license.
