Ignition Interlock Devices IID With Halley, No Concern is Too Small

Southern California DUI Ignition Interlock Devices

Protect Your Rights with a Leading Defense Attorney

Individuals convicted of Driving Under the Influence (“DUI”) offenses in Southern California may be required to use a special device on their vehicles as a prerequisite to retaining their driving privileges to commute to and from work and school.  These Ignition Interlock Devices (“IIDs”) are increasingly being utilized in California as a measure to address DUI offenses.

A judge may order the installation of an IID in almost any DUI case, regardless of whether it is a first-time offense. A judge may order you to install a California ignition interlock device (IID) for: 1) first offense of violating Vehicle Code 23152(a) driving under the influence, especially if the defendant’s BAC of .015% or higher; 2) a first offense of refusing to submit to a breath, blood or chemical test; 3) a first offense of violating Vehicle Code 23152(b) driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or greater; or, 4) Vehicle Code 14601 suspended license violations stemming from DUI convictions. A judge will order you to install an IID if you have multiple or repeat DUI convictions or violating Vehicle Code 23153 by causing injury in a DUI.

The use of IIDs is becoming more prevalent across the state, and their requirement may be determined based on the specific details of the case.

What Does an IID Mean for You?

An ignition interlock device (“IID”) is commonly and nearly always ordered in cases where a person’s blood alcohol content (“BAC”) is .15 percent or higher or in subsequent DUI offenses. If a judge mandates the installation of an IID on your vehicles, you will be responsible for the associated expenses, including installation costs and other fees that can accumulate quickly. Additionally, you must ensure that the IID is inspected and calibrated at least once every 60 days.

Functioning like a breathalyzer test that is attached to your vehicle, an IID requires you to blow into a collection tube before starting your car or continuing to drive. Failure to provide a breath sample to the device, or if the sample exceeds the set limit, the device will prevent your vehicle from starting or continuing to operate. Furthermore, the IID collects usage data which is transmitted to the court or the California DMV, depending on the specifics of your case.

Ignition Interlock Devices (“IIDs”) are costly, and following the regulations can be a hassle, but they do allow many people to get their driving privileges back sooner following a DUI first offense.

Without an ignition interlock device, people with multiple DUI offenses or a DUI with aggravating factors may face lengthy license suspensions with very restricted privileges — or no privileges at all. This impacts their freedom to travel and earn a living by commuting back and forth to work or school.
