What’s the likelihood that your license will be suspended if you are convicted of a DUI in another state?
Answer: pretty high. As time goes on, states are communicating to each other more. DUIs are a serious offense and states want to protect themselves from drunk drivers who may frequent their state. Some states have a lot of people traveling between state lines. Therefore, it would benefit any state to limit drunk drivers from nearby states as well.
