A court may order an ignition interlock device be installed in your vehicle for any of the following law violations:
- A drunk driving conviction (DUI).
- Conviction of an interlock violation (this means if you are suppose to have an interlock and are cited for not having one, the court can further order an interlock and give you more time for the violation).
- Second or more subsequent offense for any related drunk driving charge including, a DUI, an impaired driving offense, an alcohol related reckless driving offense, or a metabolite charge.
- Refusing to submit to a breath or other chemical test.
- Automobile homicide.
You will notice above a couple of different things: First, if you are convicted of a DUI it is very likely you will have to install an interlock device on your vehicle for a period time. Second, if you were cited for not having an interlock when you were suppose to, you will get more time on that interlock requirement. Third, a second related offense no matter if it is plead down to an impaired or something similar, will require an interlock. Finally, refusing to submit to a chemical test not only can lead to an automatic license suspension, but you will very likely be required to install an interlock device as well.
