Do Not Tamper with an Ignition Interlock Device

Ignition Interlock device (IID) are installed as a penalty for a DUI charge and intended to test the blood alcohol content of the driver before they take to the road. It requires you to "blow" into the IID before allowing you to start your engine and drive. In California, these devices are installed in cars after a second or subsequent DUI conviction.

The state of California sees it as a privilege for individuals convicted of drunk driving to have an IID installed in their car, versus having their driver's license revoked altogether. If you have been charged with a DUI and have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed in your vehicle, it is important to realize that tampering with this device will result in additional penalties.

Penalties for tampering with an IID, include:

  • Fines up to $5,000
  • Up to 6 months of imprisonment in county jail
  • DMV will be notified and suspend or revoke your license for the period remaining on what would have been the suspension or revocation at the original DUI conviction

Do not attempt to beat the system or try to drive while intoxicated or it could result in serious consequences. Having an ignition Interlock Device installed in your car is not a right, but a privilege.

If you have been accused of interfering with your IID, please do not hesitate tocall the Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman for help from a top-rated Orange County DUI lawyer.
