What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video what an Ignition Interlock Device is and what it’s used for in a DWI case.

Hi, Tyson Mutrux here again with the Mutrux Law Firm and today I’m answering the question of, “What is an ignition interlock device?” An ignition interlock device, or an IIED as you may hear it called sometimes, is simply a device that you blow into.

It’s hooked to the computer in your car, you blow into it whenever you turn on the car, and then you have to blow into it again say a mile down the road. It prevents a person from drinking and driving. Typically a court will make you put that on your vehicle for 6 months to a year, depending on the judge, and depending on your situation.

So, hopefully that answers your question as to what an ignition interlock device is. For more information like that, check us out on the internet or call us at (888) 550-4026. Thanks.
