Ignition Interlock Devices After NJ DWI Convictions
In 2010, DWI law in New Jersey was subjected to several revisions including a bill called Ricci’s Law. This law made it mandatory that an ignition interlock device be installed on all vehicles at a cost of $100 per month for those convicted of subsequent DWI’s, refusal to submit to a breath test, and even for first offense DWI’s if the persons blood alcohol content was over .15%. The ignition interlock device is a breath test machine that gets installed in a vehicle and prevents the car from starting if a person’s blood alcohol level is over .05%. Further, the device requires the driver to provide new breath samples every 15-20 minutes while the car is being driven.
