Virginia cracks down on DUI offenders with new system
Posted on Mar 02, 2007
The Ignition Interlock System is one way Virginia is cracking down on DUI offenders. Any first time offender who has a blood alcohol level above .15 is required to have the device for 6 months. Second time offenders are required to have ignition interlock for at least 6 months, and up to three years.
The system registers your alcohol level. If you blow below a .02, you've passed the test. You can then start your engine. Because the device requires a special breathing technique, it makes it difficult for someone else to blow into it for you.
