Ignition Interlock Device Penalties in Phoenix

What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

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.
