Connecticut Strikes a Blow Against Drunken Operation of Vehicles.

Posted on

connecticut lawsConnecticut passed into law a bill that won’t effect your local Glendale car accident attorney but changes the effects of having your license suspended for a DUI inside of it’s own state. If you have had your license suspended, and would like to get your license back to continue driving places, you will need to install an ignition interlock device, also known as an IID, in order to have your license back. This device, while installed, is meant to deter you from being under the influence while attempting to operate the vehicle in question. With the device installed in the ignition, the car will only start if the operator can blow less than a 0.025 blood alcohol content level. Anything above that will result in the operator being stranded at their location unless they walk or wait until their BAC level is below the limit. Moral of the story, don’t get temporarily mentally impaired before attempting to operate your vehicle.


Lower Tuition for Illegal Immigrants

The state is also granting lower tuition rates to illegal immigrants who have attended a state high school for at least two years. Previously, this benefit was granted after attending for all four years of high school. This law only pertains to those immigrants without proper documentation and only at in-state public colleges and universities. In case of doubts you should hire a civil rights lawyer to evaluate your case.


College Students Succeed

College students at UCon succeeded in getting legislation passed that allows for treatment of sexual assault victims within hospitals run by colleges and universities. Previously, students at UConn would have had to travel 8 miles to receive any treatment or examinations. Now, they will feel comforted in being able to stay on campus to receive this treatment.

Immunizations Win a Victory

In the past, immunizations were a requirement. Then, people started having the choice to opt out of immunizing their children, causing uproars around the country. This year, Connecticut has amped up their requirement for a parent opting not to immunize their child but expose them to public school. These parents must sign a letter stating the conflict to their child’s religious belief (the old rule) AND NOW must also have an official signature endorsing the note from someone such as a town clerk.
