If you are convicted of a DUI, you will not only have to pay all of the fines associated with the violation, but you will also have to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle. An ignition interlock device requires you to blow into the small device to determine your blood alcohol content in order to start your vehicle. If your blow over the legal limit, the car will not start. If the car does start, it will also require you to give additional breath samples as you continue to drive.
Anyone that is convicted of a DUI in Los Angeles, even if it is their first offense, is required to get an ignition interlock installed in their vehicle. If you drive more than one vehicle, you will have to get the system installed in each of the vehicles. You are required to pay for the installation of the device, which costs about $100 to install, and an additional $2.50 to $5.00 to maintain.
