Everyone knows how difficult navigating the wake of a DUI charge can be. It’s a mistake that can be very costly and lead to a lot of confusion. But it doesn’t have to ruin your life.
Depending on the number of DUIs you’ve had in the past and the severity of your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) at the time of your DUI charge, you qualify for the state’s ignition interlock program by getting an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle. Ignition interlocks allow you to keep driving while removing the risk of injuring yourself or others.
Ignition interlocks are installed through your vehicle’s dashboard and work by disabling a vehicles starter or starting system until a clean breath sample is provided. Once an alcohol-free breath sample has been given, a driver can then start his or her car normally. Although many view this as a pain, it sure beats getting your license revoked.
To make the process a little simpler, we’ve created a video that breaks down the steps of starting an interlock-installed vehicle.
We post a new Mini Video every other week. So keep an eye out around October 23rd for the next video in which we will show you what to do if you fail a breath test. If you have any questions you’d like for us to answer in our Mini Video series, contact our Market Coordinator.
Remember to like these videos and share them with your friends who may be in need of some interlock advice.
