Ignition Interlock Devices in Wyoming
An ignition interlock device (IID) is a handheld breath-testing device that is installed into a vehicle. Before the vehicle can be started the individual must exhale into the device: if the results of the breath test are .02% or higher, the vehicle will not start. Random breath samples while the car is in motion are required as well. Failure to provide a sample, or samples over .02% will start up the car alarm (e.g. horn honking and lights flashing) until the car is pulled over. The ignition interlock device must be installed in every vehicle the offender owns and operates and the offender is prohibited from driving in any vehicle that does not have the device installed. Further, your driver’s license will have an “I” restriction: “IRR- Must operate vehicle equipped with an approved ignition interlock device.”
If this is your first DUI and you have a BAC of 0.15% or greater you will be required to install an IID for six months from the date of your conviction. For your second DUI you will be required to install an IID for one year from your date of conviction. Your third DUI will result in an IID being installed in your vehicle for two years from your date of conviction. Finally, your fourth or subsequent DUI will result in a lifetime installation of an IID in your vehicle. However, you may appeal after five years from the date of your conviction.
Lastly, you must pay for the IID to be installed into your vehicle. You are responsible for the cost of the installation of the device as well as a monthly lease.
