Short Answer: No. Having anyone else take the test and then have you start driving is considered circumventing the device. Most states have laws that include fines and jail for individuals assisting in the circumvention of an interlock. Additionally, interlocks randomly ask for additional tests while the engine is running.
If the retest is not taken or failed, the unit will log a Retest Violation and the alarm horn will honk until the vehicle is turned off. A wide-angle camera may be required to take a picture during each test as a measure against this type of circumvention.
Our blow pattern is easy to master
Making sure you provide a correct breath sample is essential to the proper functioning of any interlock device. We train you on the proper use of our equipment before you leave the shop. We make helpful videos to support you at home. And you can always call our understanding and patient customer service agents to help you get the hang of it. Plus, no inhale/exhale into a device someone else used.
Monitech values your privacy
Our state-of-the-art data encryption and security measures ensure that only authorized individuals access your information. We’ll NEVER ask for your social security number (we identify you by your driver’s license number, and so does the state). Be wary of any interlock company that says a social security number is required because it’s not necessary.
