Ignition Interlock Device

Posted on:12/2/2011
If you are convicted for DUI, the court can order the installation of an ignition interlock device in your car. This device is similar to a breathalyzer. This device is fixed to the dashboard or some other place in the car.


You must breathe into the device before you can start your car. The device is programmed to detect BAC over the legal limit or a pre-determined limit. If you BAC is over the legal or the pre-determined limit, then you will not be able to start your car.

The duration of the time this device will be attached to your car will depend on law of the state where the DUI occurred. In many states, a second DUI conviction will result in the installation of the ignition interlock device. In some states, even first time DUI convictions can result in the installation of this device.

The ignition interlock device is not 100% fool proof. It can be circumvented. However if your car has been fitted with an ignition interlock device, do not attempt to circumvent it. If you attempt to circumvent the device or tamper it, you will be committing an offense. You will only make the situation worse. In addition to the penalties for DUI conviction, you will now have to face the penalties for tampering with the device.
