California Violation of Ignition Interlock Rules Charges and Penalties

What is Ignition Interlock Device?

An ignition interlocking device (IID) restricted license can be requested from the DMV. An IID  is installed in your car and measures the breath alcohol content of the driver before the vehicle will start. The device can also periodically require additional breath samples during vehicle operations. If any alcohol is detected by the device, the car will not start or will not continue normal operation. 

If you are ordered to use an ignition interlock device, you may only operate vehicles that have an ignition interlock device and cannot tamper with the device at all.  The period that the IDD will be required varies, as does the cost of installation.

What are Ignition Interlock Rules?

It is unlawful for a person to remove, bypass, or tamper with an ignition interlock device.  

It is unlawful to blow into an ignition interlock device or to start a motor vehicle equipped with the device for the purpose of providing an operable motor vehicle to a person whose driving privileges were restricted.

It is unlawful for a person to knowingly rent, lease, or lend a motor vehicle to another person known to have had his or her driving privilege unless the vehicle is equipped with a functioning, certified ignition interlock device.

What is the Punishment for Violating Ignition Interlock Rules?

Any person convicted of violating of ignition interlock rules can be punished by imprisonment for up to six months, a fine of not more than $5,000.00, or both.

Additionally, if a person is convicted of violating ignition interlock rules, then the Department of Motor Vehicles shall immediately terminate the ignition interlock restriction and suspend or revoke the person’s driving privilege for the remaining period left on the restriction.

It is important to have knowledgeable legal counsel as the sentence can range so widely.
