As we have previously reported in our May 7, 2009, January 18, 2010 and July 26, 2010 blogs, the installation of ignition interlock devices will be come mandatory on all Driving While Intoxicated convictions effective tomorrow, August 15, 2010.
These devices are expensive to install, require monthly monitoring and can be embarrassing to explain. DWI’s, DUI’s and DWAI’s are serious offenses that require serious criminal attorneys who know the science and the law behind DWI cases. Besides the mandatory ignition interlock device and the mandatory revocation of your license, offenders face probation or jail and severe fines and surcharges.
As we approach Labor Day, this is a good time to remind people not to drink and drive. If you or a loved one are arrested, charged or questioned about a DWI or other alcohol related incident including Vehicular Assault or Vehicular Manslaughter contact the law firm of Tilem & Campbell.
