DUI and Medication Drugs
A major difficulty faced by anyone arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles is that a conviction will lead to a requirement by the DMV to install in any vehicle owned or operated by the defendant an ignition interlock device. This device is expensive, inconvenient and embarrassing. It requires the defendant to blow into a tube attached to the device before starting the vehicle. If alcohol is registered on that persons breath, the vehicle will not start. Failure to comply will lead to a longer suspension.
