Ignition Interlock Devices & DUI in Scranton
Avoid Consequences with the help of a Scranton DUI Defense Lawyer
In an effort to improve road safety and dissuade habitual DUI offenders, the State of Pennsylvania enacted the Ignition Interlock Law that requires that all individuals who have been convicted of a second or subsequent DUI offense to install an ignition interlock device in each car they own and use.
Working like a breath test, an ignition interlock device requires the driver to breathe into the device in order to determine if the driver's BAC level is below the set limit. If the device detects alcohol, it will not allow the car to start. The driver will also be prompted to blow into the device while driving at periodic intervals.
