BILL ON DUI INTERLOCK DEVICES PASSES NEVADA SENATE

Colorado drivers who are convicted of driving under the influence will now have to pay for ignition interlock devices. This is according to a bill that passed the Nevada Senate on a recent Friday. The vote for this bill affecting DUI drivers, called SB259, was unanimous.

As a result of this bill, the courts will now require drivers with DUI convictions to have interlock devices for a minimum of six months. The bill essentially doubles the amount of time that must pass before such a driver can operate a vehicle again if he or she refuses to use an interlock device. Prior to the bill, that mandatory time period was 90 days.

SB259, however, gives a driver who has been charged with driving under the influence the opportunity to avoid administrative suspension, by agreeing to use an interlock device before his or her case is resolved in court. These devices, which make it impossible for drivers to start their cars if their alcohol levels are detected as being 0.02 or more, cannot be rented and carry a price tag of about $75 per month — or $2.50 per day. According to the bill, low-income drivers who have to get to work will be eligible for reductions in their monthly fees.

Nevada’s DUI laws are among the country’s most stringent, and unfortunately, being convicted of DUI can have negative long-term consequences. Fortunately, just because drivers are taken into custody for DUI does not mean they will end up being found guilty at trial. A knowledgeable attorney can help with providing aggressive representation while ensuring that all of the client’s rights are upheld during this type of criminal law proceeding.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
