Miami DUI Defense Attorney: Ignition Interlock Device Installation
Will you be forced to install an Ignition Interlock Device?
After a DUI conviction, one of the penalties that could be imposed is that you will be required to have an Ignition Interlock Device installed in any vehicle you operate. An IID is essentially a breath testing device that will not allow you to start your vehicle if you have consumed any alcohol. The device not only requires that you "blow" before starting your vehicle, but will randomly require that you blow again at intervals while you are driving. If you fail the test while operating your vehicle, your horn will begin to blow, and lights will flash, alerting law enforcement that you have violated the law, at which point, you will be arrested.
Any person who has been convicted of a DUI who had a BAC level of .15% or higher will be required to install one of these devices. The costs of installation range at around $75, with monthly fees for maintenance and calibration - you will owe it all. You do have options. You could fight back with the help of an aggressive Miami DUI lawyer. At Seltzer Law, P.A., we take pride in our professional service to those who are facing criminal charges, including both misdemeanor and felony DUI.
