Lynnwood DUI Attorney
I have to appear at review hearings for
several times a year for just such a situation. Often times my clients
have allowed someone else to use their vehicle, or a friend has wanted
to see how the ignition interlock system works. In these cases, the person
borrowing the vehicle, or the friend who is just messing around with the
ignition interlock after drinking, blows into the ignition interlock and
then the vehicle fails to start based upon the ignition interlock registering
alcohol on the breath. Everything seems fine until the ignition interlock
company later reports the positive alcohol reading to the court and the
court sets a review hearing to put my client in jail for the apparent
drinking. Luckily, as an
experienced DUI attorney
I have been able to avoid jail time for my clients in these situations.
Still, it is better to not risk being put into jail falsely. Make sure
that no one blows into your ignition interlock besides you.
