Ignition Interlock Devices – More Important Info
Q – I’ve heard people try to cheat these devices. Is that possible?
A – Of course, wherever there are rules, there are also usually people looking to bend or get around them, and the same is true with ignition interlock devices. People have been reported to try to “cheat” these devices in various ways. However, authorities are vigilant about monitoring them and:
- Require drivers to continually and frequently submit breath samples to ignition interlock devices while driving
- Will run motorists’ driving records during traffic stops and will report when drivers with an ignition interlock device restrictions are driving vehicles other than their own (i.e., vehicles with an ignition interlock device installed).
Q – What happens if people get caught trying to cheat or bypass ignition interlock devices?
A – When interlock-restricted motorists are caught trying to get around this restriction (by cheating or bypassing these devices in any way), they will face at least an automatic one-year driver’s license revocation with NO driving for the entire one-year period.
Q – What else should I know about ignition interlock devices?
A – There may be a lot more that you need to know regarding these devices, so be sure that you are fully informed by discussing your requirements – as well as the requirements for maintaining these devices – with your probation officer and an approved vendor. Staying in compliance is the fastest way to get through this requirement and avoid additional problems with the court.
