There is no denying that the active enforcement of DUI laws has helped discourage drunk driving across the United States as well as in other countries. Consequently, there have been fewer reported injuries, deaths, and even fewer cases of property damage caused by alcohol-related accidents. Suppose you’re arrested and convicted of a DUI. In that case, there are many penalties you have to deal with, including fines, legal fees, license suspension, and community service, and you may have to adhere to an ignition interlock program. You have to undergo all these as part of regaining your full driving privileges. It’s very important to note that many states have adopted the installation of ignition interlock devices for all DUI offenses, including first-time DUI offenses. Additionally, the length of time you will have a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) or IID installed in your vehicle depends on the rules in your state and how well you follow them. Here is everything you need to know about ignition interlock devices and how they work.
