Condition of Probation: Ignition Interlock Device

Posted by Richard Lawson | May 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

Sometimes, as a condition of your Roswell or  Alpharetta drunk driving probation, an ignition interlock device is required to be installed in your vehicle for a six month period.  This period follows a one year suspension of your Georgia driving privileges.  These are specialized devices and there are facilities where you have to pay to have them installed in your car.  You also have to pay a monthly maintenance fee for the months in which you have the interlock device. 

Typically, the ignition interlock is for repeat DUI offenders.  There can be a potential probation violation and problems getting driving privileges restored if the person on probation moves out of the state of Georgia.  An ignition interlock is Georgia specific.  However, you cannot just serve the time you are supposed to have the interlock on a license suspension.  You must obtain a waiver of the requirement of the ignition interlock.  Roswell / Alpharetta  DUI attorney Richard Lawson is well versed in the areas of drivers license suspension and ignition interlock issues.  He has helped thousands of clients get back on the road following DUI cases.  Call the Roswell area office of Richard Lawson for your free consultation of your DUI case or probation violation / ignition interlock dilemma today.
