I had a DUI in NJ which got my CT license suspended as well. I got a three month suspension, BAC level was dropped and I was not required to install an Interlock Device. In order to get a NJ license I need to reinstate CT license. They require me to install an interlock device for a year. Is there a work around to this( any appeal process) . If not can i remove the interlock device once I get the NJ license rather than waiting for a year. I reside in NJ now.
While in Connecticut you need to comply with Connecticut law . Ct law does not go beyond the borders of Connecticut and therefore when driving in another state you need to comply with the other states law, many of which are different.
You won't be able to remove the device. In fact, your car will not start if the device is tinkered with.
In addition, in Connecticut it is illegal to tamper with, or remove, an interlock device. If you removed it in New Jersey, you might face additional charges.
You may be able to appeal the suspension, but it depends when the suspension occurred. You have a limited time period from when you receive the suspension notice to the time you request the appeal.
