Hall County DUI Ignition Interlock

Posted by Richard Lawson | May 10, 2011 | 0 Comments

Gainesville prosecuting attorneys and judges are very strict when it comes to drunk driving cases.  If you have been convicted of a Gainesville or Hall County DUI, particulary if you are a repeat offender, there are likely many stringent conditions attached to your probation.  One condition of your probation may have been to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.  An ignition interlock is a device that must be blow into before the car can be started.  It detects blood alcohol content.  If there is alcohol on the potential drivers breath, the car will not start.  These devices are specially designed to require an actual breath sample from the driver. 

Typically, the interlock is installed for a six month period following a year long drivers license suspension.  The ignition interlock is only available in Georgia.  If a probationer moves to another state during the time period when they are supposed to have an interlock device installed, they will need to apply for a an ignition interlock waiver.
