Sec. 14-111n. Reports of comparable convictions. Suspension of operator's license. (1548)(Text)

(a) If the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles receives a report from any member jurisdiction of the conviction in such jurisdiction of any person licensed to operate a motor vehicle in this state, for acts or conduct of the nature described in subsection (b) of this section, the commissioner shall suspend the operator's license of such person for the period of time required for a conviction of the equivalent offense under the provisions of the general statutes, as listed in subsection (b) of this section, for the same acts or conduct occurring in this state.

(d) If the commissioner is notified by a member jurisdiction that a person who is the holder of a motor vehicle operator's license has been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, in accordance with subdivision (2) of subsection (b) of this section, the commissioner may consider the conviction as a second or subsequent violation of section 14-227a if such person has been convicted previously of a violation of section 14-227a or has been convicted previously of a substantially similar offense in a member jurisdiction, as shown by such person's driver control record, within the past ten years, and the commissioner may impose the suspension for the period of time required for a second or subsequent offense by the provisions of subsection (h) of section 14-227a.
