DUIs can ruin your reputation, as well as your personal and professional life. The consequences can be lifelong, as the law takes these convictions incredible seriously. If you have been charged with one or more DUI, you may be subject to installing an ignition interlock device in your car. This device acts as a breathalyzer device, wired to the ignition of your vehicle.
Your car will not be capable of starting until you have blown into the device and proven you are not attempting to drink and drive. Through the installation of these devices, the state can then determine with certainty that you are of safe driving conditions every time you get behind the wheel.
Not only does ignition interlock devices prevent you from turning on your car at all, they also are programmed to include various tests known as rolling tests. These make it more difficult for drivers to get away with drinking and driving. Every once in a while, after your car has already been turned on, you will be asked to give another sample, ranging anywhere from a few minutes to an hour after you began driving. If you fail this test, the DMV will be notified and the response will be recorded.
