Interlock Requirements

Colorado Law will require the installation and use of ignition interlock systems for most people convicted of DUI.  An ignition interlock is a device which requires the vehicle's driver to provide breath samples when the vehicle is started, and then, at random intervals while driving.  The interlock will prevent the vehicle from starting if it detects alcohol in excess of a setpoint  value or will work the vehicle's horn and lights to alert police if the setpoint is passed will the car is running.  Persons subject to the interlock are issued a  "restricted license," i.e., a license that reflects that they may only drive vehicles with an interlock installed.  During the period of the restricted driving, the Colorado DMV will monitor reports from the interlock provider to determine whether the restricted driver has been "locked out" or whether circumvention has been attempted.   Where three lockouts occur within any of twelve consecutive month, DMV may extend the interlock requirment.  Where circumvention occurs the interlock restricted driver will have his or her license revoked and may be subject to criminal prosecution.


Effective January 1, 2014,interlocks laws have significantly changed the previous law involving alcohol violations, Persistent Drunk Drivers (PDD) and the Ignition Interlock program.  Those changes include:  
 

  • The reduction of the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) on a chemical test from 0.17 to 0.15 to designate the driver as a Persistent Drunk Driver.  
  • The refusal of a chemical test at a traffic stop on or after January 1, 2014, will now result in a Persistent Drunk Driver designation.  
  • If a driver refused a chemical test prior to January 1, 2014, and was previously ineligible to reinstate early with Interlock, they may now either finish serving the remainder of their revocation and reinstate with full driving privileges, or serve at least two months and apply for early reinstatement with Interlock for one year.  They are not eligible for Financial Assistance in this case.   
  • If a driver has multiple alcohol violations or refusals on their record, the wait time for early reinstatement with Interlock has been reduced to one or two months, respectively.

CDOT is Providing Technology to Eliminate Drunk Driving

By Amy de Held

November 10, 2016


Each year in Colorado, more than 26,000 people are arrested for DUI, and over 150 people are killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes—representing more than one-third of all traffic fatalities in Colorado. CDOT's R-U-Buzzed app is a BAC calculator and handy resource to help drinkers gauge their BAC levels and get a safe ride! The app allows people to plug in the amount of drinks they consumed and their weight. It will be able to tell the person their BAC and what time they will be sober. If the person is at risk for a DUI (.08 BAC or above) or a DWAI (.05-.08 BAC) there is a link to apps that can provide a safe ride home, such as Uber and Lyft. Check it out!
