new hampshire ignition interlock device lawyer
rockingham county dui penalties attorney
If you have been convicted of aggravated DUI or a second or subsequent DUI, you are facing the high expense, embarrassment, and inconvenience of having ignition interlock devices, or IIDs, on every vehicle you own, for many months. You pay for the installation as well as a monthly lease. Contact an attorney to learn your rights and options.
The machines are very sophisticated, but are also capable of false positives — you may have had nothing to drink, but the car won't start. Before the car will start, you must exhale into the IID. If any alcohol is detected (or a BAC of .02 or more) the car will not start.
The machine keeps a record of "passes" and "fails." It also requires you to, at random, blow into the device as you are driving. If you "fail", your lights flash and the horn will honk until you pull over and stop. (If the engine were to simply stop as you drove this would pose a hazard).
Until recently, judges had discretion on whether to order an IID as a DWI penalty in these cases, but the law now states that it is mandatory.
