What Is Life like with an Ignition Interlock Device?

Have you been arrested for drunk driving in Nebraska? Even if you have not yet been convicted of any charges, now is a good time to learn about the potential consequences just in case. Being prepared can help make the process easier.

Among the various penalties you may experience is the loss of driving privileges but you may have the ability to drive by installing an ignition interlock device. While you can drive, life with an IID will be different than when you have your normal driving experiences. Intoxalock is one of many IID manufacturers and explains that for starters, you will have to take a breath test before starting your vehicle every single time.

Before you can pass such a test, your mouth must be completely clean. Running late for work and want to brush your teeth and head out the door? You'll need to wait about 15 minutes before your mouth is clean enough to pass the test. Do you enjoy having your coffee or a latte on the way to work in the morning? That will not be possible as you must always be prepared to take a test even while you drive. Even the act of getting gas will be different as you must take a new test when you are ready to start your car again.
