What happens if I commit an ignition interlock device violation?

New York drivers convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) will be required to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in their vehicle. Violating court orders regarding an IID can result in new misdemeanor charges for the driver.

The consequences of committing an IID violation vary based on the severity and type of violation. Penalties can include fines, jail time, loss of driving privileges and an extension of the device installation requirement.

Some examples of IID violations are driving a vehicle without the court-ordered device installed, tampering with the device, failing to provide a breath sample or getting someone else to blow into the machine instead.

IID requirements in New York can be complicated. As a driver, it is your responsibility to make sure you understand how to use the device so that you can avoid any potential penalties.

An experienced DWI defense lawyer can protect you from the harsh consequences of an IID violation. Brill Legal Group can show the court that the violation was an error and that the penalties are unjustified.
