New Ignition Interlock Device Laws for California

Posted by Amy Morell | Mar 11, 2019 | 0 Comments

What is an Ignition Interlock Device (IID)?

An ignition interlock device (IID), is a breathing device that is attached to a car.  Once installed, a person is required to breath in it periodically in order for the car to continue to operate.  California has passed recent laws that give DUI offenders a chance to avoid any suspension time by installing the IID.  However, refusal cases are not eligible for relief and still require a one year suspension on a first refusal.  Also, DUI Drug cases are not eligible for the IID restricted license.

If you want more information about the new IID law, please call Amy at 510-293-9440.
