MICHIGAN IGNITION INTERLOCK LAWYER
The use of breath alcohol ignition interlock devices (BAIID) is gaining favor throughout the country and throughout Michigan. Often, judges and probation agents will order placement of these devices in drivers' cars. Department of State hearing judges will likewise order them and issue a restricted license that requires their use. Unfortunately, these devices can present a host of problems:
- They are expensive and embarrassing
- They are overused by hearing officers who may monitor a driver for years
- They have glitches or errors which may result in your license being re-revoked or suspended

If the Department of State alleges that a driver violated his/her interlock device, it will often re-revoke that person's license. If the Department of State desires, it can order extended use of BAIID. This could mean being on the interlock device for several years.
