How many interlock violations can you have?

The number of interlock violations allowed can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific circumstances. Generally, any violation of the terms and conditions associated with an ignition interlock device (IID) can have consequences and may lead to extended IID requirements, additional penalties, or even license suspension.

Common interlock violations can include:

1. Tampering or circumventing the device: Any attempt to tamper with or bypass the IID is considered a violation.

2. Failed or missed breath tests: If a driver fails to provide a breath sample or registers a positive alcohol reading on the IID, it may be considered a violation.

3. Failure to report: Some jurisdictions require drivers to report regularly for data downloads or maintenance appointments. Failure to comply with these reporting requirements may be considered a violation.

4. Non-compliance with servicing: If the IID requires regular calibration or maintenance, failure to schedule and attend those appointments may be considered a violation.

The specific number of violations allowed before penalties are imposed can vary. It’s important to familiarize yourself with the laws and regulations of your jurisdiction regarding IID requirements and violations. Consulting with your local DMV or a legal professional specializing in DUI/DWI law can provide you with accurate and up-to-date information on the specific rules and consequences associated with interlock violations in your area.
