What is an ignition interlock device(IID), and how does it work? These devices, manufactured by companies such as Intoxalock, are mobile breath test machines that are wired into your vehicle's electrical harness. They require that a driver submit a breath test in order to start the vehicle, and also submit rolling retests at random times while the vehicle is moving. Here is a short video provided by Intoxalock that explains how these simple machines function.
Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, installation of an IID may a requirement for obtaining a restricted license. However, an IID may be used to give an individual convicted of DUI much greater liberty than he or she would otherwise possess. In some cases, an IID can be installed in order to give the citizen motorist with a restricted license the opportunity to travel without geographic or time restrictions. This equipment is simple to install and operate and costs under $100.00 a month. Attorney William A. Young, Jr. has experience with ignition interlock devices, including the Intoxalock
brand of equipment, and can assist you with any questions you may have.
