Ignition Interlock Devices: New York Guidelines
New York laws require drivers convicted of Misdemeanor DWI or Felony DWI to install ignition interlock devices on any cars they own and operate for a minimum of six months. In certain instances, the interlock device requirement may be extended into the probation period beyond the time your driver’s license is under revocation because of your conviction. For expert advice and representation, contact experienced Ignition Interlock Device Attorneys in New York at the Law Offices of Mark J. Sacco. We handle all DWI charges, including Underage DWI and Aggravated DUI.
Convicted Driver Pays to Install and Monitor Ignition Interlock Device
An ignition interlock device is installed at the convicted driver’s expense and is designed to measure blood alcohol content and disallow operation of the car if the driver’s alcohol level is above a certain amount, as measured by the device. Users also pay for monitoring. Our attorneys are seasoned DWI Defense experts; we also defend against CDL Violations, Chemical Test Refusals, Vehicular Assault and Vehicular Homicide.
Can an Ignition Interlock Device Be Averted in Your Case?
You may be hoping this requirement can be averted in your case because of the extra hardship it would cause you. Perhaps you’re a medical professional or car salesperson, or you transport patients, clients or customers as part of your job. Maybe your driving privileges have been suspended because you allegedly failed to install or failed to monitor the ignition interlock device—but you dispute the allegations. Your concerns are valid, and you need knowledgeable legal counsel urgently.
