For your second offense, the driver’s license is revoked for 1 year, just think that you cannot excursion for 1 year. Won’t you get nuts? The probation period is the same as the first offense – five years. Fines and penalties will be imposed and the prison term is 60 days to 280 days in the filthy jail. You will also be unprotected to mandatory training on alcohol treatment. Your car will also be installed with the ignition interlock device.
For a super extreme, the driver’s license is forever suspended or revoked. You will undergo a 5-year probation period and 45 days to 180 days in prison cell. Just like the extreme case, you will be in participation in the mandatory alcohol treatment program, with installation of the ignition interlock devices.
