DUI cases present challenges to citizens in Virginia due to increased and severe penalties now assessed on this type of infraction. In 2012, the Virginia legislature further amended the statutes to provide that a person who is convicted of DUI is required to have an ignition interlock on the first offense as a condition of a restricted license. This amended a longstanding requirement for an ignition interlock to be imposed only upon a second or subsequent offense or when the offender’s BAC is above 0.15 percent. The new law also provides that a court may authorize a restricted license for travel to and from the interlock installer and adds further restrictions on the type of vehicle allowed to be driven in vehicles with an interlock device installed. DUI cases are won through knowledge of the law and procedures required throughout the DUI arrest process.
