What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

Phoenix DUI Attorneys

When individuals are charged with and convicted of a DUI, there are numerous penalties that are often handed down by the court. One of these may include the installation of an ignition interlock device on the defendant’s vehicle. This device requires the driver to blow into a breathalyzer before they can start their vehicle. If they pass the breathalyzer, the vehicle will be allowed to start. If they fail, it will create a lockout period during which time, it will halt the ignition and the vehicle cannot be started.

At MayesTelles PLLC, our Phoenix DUI lawyers aim to help individuals when it comes to ignition interlock devices and their convictions. These devices are part of the sentence of a DUI conviction and the defendant has to pay for the device themselves. Should a driver begin to drink after starting a vehicle, the device may require another breath test at a random time while being operated. This is to prevent drunk driving and help reduce the repeat rates in DUIs.

DUI with Ignition Interlock Device

Oftentimes, individuals who have been ordered to install an ignition interlock device try to find ways to get around the laws. They’ll often either have someone else blow into the device or drive without the device installed. This is illegal and subject to further penalties.

An individual caught driving intoxicated with an ignition interlock device or without the IID face the following penalties:

  • More jail time
  • Fines
  • Extension of the ignition interlock device requirement
  • Suspension of driver’s license

It is important to follow the laws setup to make sure the IID is used for its intended purpose. Failure to do so can be detrimental to your future career opportunities and more. The ignition interlock device must be installed within the 30 days after an order. If this is not completed, your driver’s license may be suspended immediately.
