Ignition Interlock Required For First Time DUI Offenders

More and more states are beginning to require that first time DUI offenders install ignition interlock devices in their vehicle. An ignition interlock device requires drivers to breathe into a tube prior to starting their vehicles. If the device detects alcohol, the vehicle will not start. The device also randomly requires drivers to breathe into the tube to test for alcohol; if alcohol is detected, the vehicle will be disabled. So far, about fourteen states have passed laws requiring first time DUI offenders to install such devices. 

Last July, California started a pilot program requiring that first time DUI offenders install ignition interlock devices. So far, these devices are only required in four counties, but one of those counties is in the Central Valley. If you are convicted of a first offense DUI in Tulare County, you will be required to install an ignition interlock device. Installation costs approximately $100 and monthly fees are approximately $75.
