You correctly state the law as it is now, however, recently the Legislature passed a change to the suspension on a second offense. The new law will allow people convicted of a second offense to receive a restricted license after 90 days of suspension when the driver installs an ignition interlock device and jumps through some other hoops.
Unfortunately, there are numerous unanswered questions including whether it will affect those who are currently suspended for second offenses, or only those suspended after the operative date. We also do not know if it will go into effect ONLY if the mandatory interlock device requirement goes into effect in July 2010. These remain uncertain, as of now, you should count of being suspended for the year, although you may want to check in with Mandatory Actions to see if the law change will affect you.
As Mr. Mueller stated, you are not eligible for a restriction until the year has passed. Although there is pending legislation to change this law, the funding has not yet been approved. If it is approved, it will probably not be in place until July of 2010, which will not be helpful for you.
