I'm "suspended for life",3rd d.u.i.. I live in Ct. The last two were in 2001. Do I need interlock to ride 49cc scooter-moped?
suspended for life means a hearing at M.V.D. I was suspended back in 2001 for third D.W.I. I have become fully disabled since 2002. Since then I served 1 year of incarceration where I was allowed to attend an alcohol treatment and education program that was required by the court. It seems that after 12 years absolutely nobody has any record of this, including M.V D. , I'm a totally different person these days with alcohol use way behind me. I can hardly walk and need a simple moped-scooter-49cc to relieve the burden to the tax payers for local transportation around town for doctors and small necessities. I can't afford a car or motorcycle on tiny fixed income, so do I need another alcohol class and an interlock device to occasionally use it for very local errands ?
This is an easy answer. They don't make IIDs for mopeds or motorcycles, so the question is mute.
