I'm required to have an interlock installed on my vehicle (recent DUI charge). I'm leaving the country in a couple months.
I was charged with DUI on 6/22/2016. I'm required to install interlock and buy SR22 insurance. I'm leaving the country for a job overseas next month (although I may have to postpone to fulfill community service if its required). If I'm overseas for a couple years and return, will I need to have SR22 and install an interlock to get my license in Colorado? Its a two year Interlock commitment . What if I'm gone more than 2 years and what is the statute of limitations? Thanks!
You are typically under no obligation to install the interlock device if you have no intention of driving. It is not...

The interlock and SR22 insurance are probably not part of your sentence. They are conditions required if you want to...
I was cited for DUI on 6/22/2016. I'm wondering if a have an extunating circumstances defense and the best interlock company.
I was at home when my friend/girlfriend texted me (and I've saved the text) at midnight that she had just swallowed a bunch of pills and didn't want to live any more. I knew where she lived but not the address. I called her, no answer, so then drove to her house, knocked on her door...no answer. I then called 911. Long story short, the police asked if I had been drinking that night, and I admitted that I had while at home and had driven. (Why oh why didn't I say I took a cab)?! I was arrested for DUI. My friend was OK by the way. My BAC was .19, so I'm required to have an interlock device for 2 years. Any advice? I'm also looking for the best deal on interlock in Colorado. Thank you!
No, what you described is not a legal defense. (Forget the statement you made. Why didn't you ACTUALLY take a cab...
Interlock statute of limitations
If I'm required to have interlock for 2 years and am out of the country, should I just keep it installed in my vehicle (if I still own it) and have someone to drive it to get the test done while paying the monthly rate? (Even if I'm not driving at all during this period). I think the answer is yes, but we'll see. Or do I wait until I return and have interlock re-installed? Is there a statute of limitations, or do I have to have an interlock for 2 years even if it's many years from now? Thanks.
" and have someone to drive it " Isn't that fraudulent? If you do not have it for 2 years, as required, you never...
2 year interlock requirement, leaving the country in a couple months.
I was arrested for DUI in May 2016 in Colorado and will be required to have an interlock device installed for two years in order to have my unrestricted license reinstated. I'm leaving the country in a couple months (provided I fulfill community service and probation requirements). My assumption is I will need to resume interlock when I return to the US, even if its been over 2 years since driving. Is this so?
You did ask it in a different way without the fraudulent suggestion in another post. Yes, you would have to resume the...
I received a DUI Charge and blew a .10 Can a seasoned attorney get this charged pleaded down to a reckless drive or dismissal?
The officer had me blow 3 times into the machine at the station and threatened a refusal each time. They had alot of trouble getting the breath test machine to work. This is my first offense. Also, I have an out of state license and understand the DLC Agreement bwtn states. I have just moved to to CO 2 months ago. I have enrolled in a level 2 alcohol program and am in the process of setting up public service all before my court date. Will alll this prep work be good faith for court?
A seasoned attorney is a great idea. It may be possible if the facts and you cooperate. The prep work is not a bad...
Can a Colorado driver be convicted of DUI if sober, but taking prescription BP and cholesterol medications?
Can a driver be convicted of DUI in Colorado if pulled over for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign ("rolling stop") If the officer says the driver appeared to be off balance, but refused roadside tests, and a blood test was positive only for Lisinopril and Amlodipine (blood pressure medications) and Simvistatin (cholesterol medication)?
