Boston DUI And Ignition Interlock Device Lawyer
Under certain types of DUI convictions, you will be required to have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed in your vehicle if you are to continue to drive. These devices are a requirement if you are getting a hardship license or have been convicted of a second DUI offense. You will be required to blow into the device before the car will start and it will not start if you have consumed any alcohol.
It is strongly advised that you contact a Boston DUI defense attorney at the Massachusetts Criminal Defense Group if you need to drive and have had your license suspended or revoked due to a DUI conviction. Recent laws make it more difficult to get a hardship license, and you must prove that it is not possible to take public transportation.

Cost Of A Massachusetts Ignition Interlock Device
If you get your license reinstated or are eligible for a hardship license, you will be required to pay for installation of an IID, which costs about $200, in every vehicle you drive. You will also need to pay a monitoring fee every month that you are driving with the device, which is about the size of a mobile phone.
Your Responsibilities When Issued An Interlock Device
If you register at .02 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or above, the vehicle will not start. It will also require you to blow into it on occasion when you have been driving the vehicle. You will be required to do specific maintenance on the device, and if you don't, you will lose your ability to drive.
