Do I Need an Ignition Interlock Device?

Ignition interlock laws vary greatly by state. Unfortunately, there isn’t one simple answer to this. In many states, if you’ve been convicted or arrested for drunk driving, you will need to install an ignition interlock device. Failure to install an interlock device if you're required to could result in serious legal and financial consequences. 

Driving Without an Interlock

The costs involved with getting caught driving while suspended or revoked and possibly, the costs of getting another DUI are much greater than the cost of installing an interlock when you’re required to.

Most states have programs in place to monitor ignition interlock device installation to ensure those who are required to install them follow through. Interlocks are the quickest and easiest way to regain driving privileges after a drunk driving conviction.
