Ignition Interlock Devices as a DUI Penalty

In some states DUI offenders must have an interlock device installed in their vehicle. Unlike the interlock devices of the past, newer models are much more reliable and easier to operate. An ignition interlock device is installed in a vehicle to prevent an intoxicated driver from operating it. The driver must blow into the device to get a blood-alcohol reading. If the person is found to have a BAC over the pre-set limit on the device, the car simply will not turn on. There are certain tests that must be completed by the driver to prevent tampering with the device.

Should someone attempt to dismantle the interlock device, this attempt will be recorded electronically on the device's memory. As more and more states are attempting to crack down on drunk driving, they are utilizing these devices as just one of the DUI penalties a convicted drunk driver can be subjected to. If you were recently arrested for DUI in California and hoping to avoid such penalties as ignition interlock devices, you'll want to fight your charges with help from an Orange County DUI lawyer. To get legal assistance for your case, contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry now.
