Ignition Interlock Devices Help Get Driver’s Back on the Road

An ignition interlock device like a breathalyzer.  It is attached to a vehicle’s dashboard and will not allow a car to start if the driver has any breath alcohol. dui-defense-attorney-ignition-interlock-deviceThere many regulations that must be followed in order to properly use the interlock device.  For instance, you must never leave your vehicle running and unattended even momentarily.  If you fail to provide a rolling re-test for any reason that is a major violation.  If you are having your car worked on, then you must provide legible, dated and signed receipts.  There are numerous other concerns with an interlock device.  It is important that you understand each and every requirement so that you do not have to face a possible violation.

If there is an accusation of an interlock violation, you will get a letter from the Secretary of State notifying you of the problem and that your license will be revoked all over again in a few days.  The only remedy at this point is to file an appeal within 14 days to schedule a hearing so that you can, hopefully, win your license back again.  If you do not appeal, your license remains revoked and you will have to start all over again.
