New DUI laws now in effect

January 3, 2012

The new year brings with it some new changes to the state’s drinking and driving laws, aimed at reducing the number of repeat offenders.
A handful of changes in Nebraska’s DUI laws went into effect Jan. 1, with perhaps the most significant change involves the use of ignition interlock devices. The new law passed by the Nebraska Legislature allows someone arrested for DUI, first offense, to forgo the 30-day license revocation that is automatic with most DUI arrests in exchange for six months of using the interlock device.
