Ignition Interlocking Devices Can be Very Costly

The International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety’s statistics show that the proper use of ignition interlock devices, when combined with a comprehensive monitoring and service program, reduces repeat drunk driving offenses between 40-95%.
If you have been convicted of a DUI, the court may order you to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle.

The ignition interlock device is like a breathalyzer in your car. It requires you to breath submit a breath sample, and if no alcohol is detected on your breath, you will be allowed to start your vehicle. Periodically, as you drive, you will be required to provide additional breath samples.

The ignition interlock device must be installed by an authorized company, and proof of the installation must be provided to the court. The court notifies DMV, who then makes a note of it on your driving record so law enforcement is aware. If you fail to comply with the court’s decision, DMV will suspend your license until you are in compliance and have the ignition interlock device properly installed.

It is up to you to make sure the ignition interlock device is inspected and calibrated at specific intervals. Again, should you refuse to comply, DMV is obligated to suspend or revoke your license.

Tampering or attempting to by pass the ignition interlock device, or failing three or more times to comply with any requirement for the maintenance of the ignition interlock device, will result in DMV suspending or revoking your license.
