Ignition Interlock Device DUI Heroes - Leaders in DUI Defense

Ignition Interlock Device

DUI Ignition Interlock Devices

Persons found guilty of DUI charges are usually required to install an ignition interlock device on their vehicle. The driver is required to blow into this device before starting their vehicle to establish their sobriety. The vehicle will not start if the device detects the presence of alcohol on the driver's breath. Drivers will also need to provide breath samples while driving to prevent alcohol consumption.

A Seattle criminal defense lawyer should be contacted at once if you have been charged with DUI for qualified legal representation. Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device is one of many penalties in a drunk driving case.

You may also be facing:

  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Probation
  • Jail time
  • Fines and restitution
  • Driver's license suspension or revocation
  • Alcohol evaluation and treatment
  • Mandatory alcohol/drug education and counseling
  • Required attendance at a DUI victim's panel
  • Community service

A DUI can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony depending on the facts of the case. Sentencing is often severe when a person convicted of DUI has a prior DUI criminal history, had a blood alcohol content (BAC) well above 0.08%, or caused an accident resulting in injuries or fatalities.
