Are you a Utah Alcohol Restricted Driver
Driving With Alcohol Restrictions
A DUI in Utah has many potential negative consequences such as having to drive with an interlock ignition device, possible jail time, and significant fines. Another
consequence is that you will automatically become a Utah alcohol restricted driver. This means that you are prohibited from driving if you have any measurable amount of alcohol in your body. It is not difficult to have a measurable amount of alcohol in your body. You can basically smell a beer and get a measurable amount in your system…well that may not be true but the point is, it doesn’t take a lot to show positive on a breath test.
You can also become a Utah alcohol restricted driver if you failed to use an interlock device when ordered to do so or if you have been convicted of impaired driving, which is considered a reduction from a DUI.
