Traffic offenses Ignition interlock

In the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, if you have been found guilty of a DUI or certain traffic offenses, you may still be allowed to drive a vehicle but an ignition interlock must be installed for the duration of your sentence. An ignition interlock is installed in a vehicle which makes it inoperable until certain requirements are fulfilled.  defending dui cases These may include breathing into a breathalyzer to make sure that no alcohol is present in your system before driving. As of August 25, 2017, Act 33 officially became an enforceable law making it is mandatory for first time DUI offenders with a high BAC, repeat DUI offenders and people who refuse chemical testing to have an ignition interlock be installed in their vehicle. Act 33 also established an ignition license limited license which only allows the individual to operate vehicles with the interlock installed. On the physical license, there are big red letters saying "Limited License" and in the yellow outline of the state the words "Ignition Interlock" are written. This allows law enforcement to easily identify drivers who are only allowed to operate vehicles with the interlock system on.

Under Pennsylvania law, if a driver is found operating a vehicle in traffic offenses cases without the ignition interlock or violate any terms in the arrangement, that individual faces repercussions for their violation. In order to have an ignition interlock limited license, first you must apply through PennDOT.
