I just received a citation for Driving Without an Ignition Interlock Device. What Should I expect?
First, driving without an ignition interlock device when one is required is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 364 days in jail and a $5000 fine if convicted.
However, more serious is the impact that such a charge (not even a conviction) would have on prior court cases. For example, if you are on probation for a DUI and get a charge of driving without the ignition interlock device when required, a court will likely summons you in for a probation violation hearing, and may impose additional jail, often up to thirty days.
If you are on a deferred prosecution program, driving without an ignition interlock device is grounds for revocation of the deferred prosecution, which typically results in automatic conviction and imposed jail time.
Remember, driving any vehicle, including motorcycles and scooters, without an ignition interlock device when one is required is a crime, and may be prosecuted.
