Why choose Intoxalock Utah?
Two House Bills recently passed Utah impacting the state’s current DUI laws. All changes go into effect May 15, 2021.
Utah HB 20 outlines a new type of offender: a driver who either had a BAC over .16, a BAC over .05 plus any controlled substance, or a driver who was under the influence of multiple drugs not prescribed by a physician.
Utah HB 26 expands the 24-7 program from a pilot program to a full, state-wide program. This act also expands IID licenses to certain “low-risk” offenders, and mandates that if a judge chooses to not require an IID for a first offense, the judge must state on the record why they are diverting from the IID option.
These new laws are subject to the interpretation of the Utah courts.
Ignition interlocks require drivers to test their breath alcohol content (BrAC) before driving. In Utah, you will not be able to start your car if your BrAC is at or above .02 percent.
