Ignition Interlock Devices
Fort Lauderdale Ignition Interlock Devices - Defending DUI Cases in Ft. Lauderdale
In many DUI convictions, the court will mandate installation of an IID (Ignition Interlock Device) in each vehicle owned by the convicted person once the suspension period has ended. The IID is connected to the ignition and will prevent the vehicle from starting if the presence of alcohol is detected. The IID is like a breathalyzer test. The driver must blow into it and have an alcohol reading less than the device is set to. Depending upon the requirement the device can be set to a reading of such as 0.0, or 0.02.
The device will be required for the duration of the sentence and your driving license will have a “P” to indicate this requirement. Upon completion of a sentence the DHSMV will remove this designation from your permit. A Ft. Lauderdale DUI lawyer with our firm has the expertise needed to mount an effective defense for a client facing a conviction of DUI.
On the whole these devices have been effective in preventing convicted drivers from reoffending while attached to a vehicle, but may not always be precise in their readings which can be a problem. Additionally there is no control on whether the driver or another person blows into it so this test is fairly easy to bypass.
