COVID-19: Your safety is our priority. Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, we are doing our part to keep our clients and team members safe and healthy. We are still open and accepting new cases everyday. However, during this time we will not be accepting drop offs and pickups from any of our Firm locations. The wheels of justice are still moving, but you can stay home while we fight for you.
An ignition interlock device is installed on a vehicle, and requires the driver to blow into a tube that detects the presence of alcohol. If alcohol is detected, the car will not start.
This device is quite expensive, costing approximately $100 per month plus a heavy insurance surcharge, and requires you to have it inspected once per month at an inspection station, regardless of whether or not you have a license. So it’s a major hassle.
It’s imperative you consult an experienced attorney, because in a first-tier DUI, there is some leeway regarding whether or not the court will impose installation of the device.
