No matter what you call it, OUI, DUI or DWI, it's still drunk driving. If you are stopped for Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs in the State of Connecticut (OUI), you now will have to navigate a complete changeover in the law. In some ways the penalties are less punishing than before, but you will have to pay because of the introduction of ignition interlock device (IID). Before, a 1st offender faced an automatic 90 day license suspension, now it's 45 days. But once the suspension is over, you need to have installed the IID for a period of 6 months in order to drive, and for different periods if you are not a first offender. In order to properly deal with the legal maze of whys and wherefores concerning this new law, be sure to completely familiarize yourself with the law before going to Court or take the safer route of obtaining legal representation.
