    Utah’s New Program To Keep Your Drivers License After A DUI

    The state of Utah has recently initiated a program called the 24/7 Sobriety Program, where people convicted of DUI or DWI while driving under the effects of alcohol and or drugs are able to keep their driving privileges after being convicted.

    The 24/7 Sobreirty Program was first tested back in 2017 and has since been adopted by 17 of the 29 counties in Utah. The counties that participate in the 24/7 Sobriety Program are: Cache, Weber, Davis, Tooele, Salt Lake, Summit, Wasatch, Unitah, Utah, Juab, Sevier, Grand, Beaver, Iron, Washington, Kane, and San Juan. With counties: Box Elder Rich, Morgan Duchesne, Sanpete, Carbon, Millard, Emery, Puite, Wayne, and Garfield pending participation, and that will hopefully adopt the program soon.

    How Does the 24/7 Sobreity Program Work?

    According to the Utah Department of Public Safety:

    The program works to keep qualified offenders accountable daily to stay sober and clean. They are put into a program of ongoing scheduled or random testing (twice daily for alcohol or random testing for drugs). Failure to pass the test results in immediate short-term incarceration. This system of continual monitoring paired with immediate consequences for failure has been demonstrated to be effective in causing offenders to change their behavior and maintain sobriety.

    What if I am unable to go to a testing site twice a day? 

    The program allows for remote alcohol testing bracelets to be worn by an offender who cannot report to the testing site twice a day. Those reasons might include travel distance, work schedules, or lack of transportation. The bracelets measure alcohol every 30 minutes through the skin and transmit the data to a base station every night. The bracelets allow for greater flexibility while maintaining accountability. The bracelets are referred to as CAM bracelets (Continuous Alcohol Monitoring).

    Do You Qualify for the 24/7 Sobriety Program?

    DUI laws are complicated in Utah and when you are cited/arrested for a DUI the first thing you should do is contact an experienced Utah DUI Lawyer, Greg Law. Greg can examine your case and see if there are any flaws or missteps during the arrest or any other circumstances of your case and help you avoid a DUI conviction altogether. He may even be able to help you keep your license at the 10 Drivers License Hearing. If you are convicted of a DUI and whether this is your first conviction or if you have had several similar convictions Greg can help you determine if you are eligible for the 24/7 Sobriety program.
