For many people, the consequences of a DWI/DUI conviction that have the most immediate impact are those that limit their ability to drive. In Louisiana, you may be forced to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle after a DWI conviction, even if it is your first. Ignition interlock devices require the driver to submit a BAC sample that is below a certain limit for the vehicle to be able to start.
Apart from being an inconvenience, ignition interlock devices are also a financial burden. You need to secure the device and pay for it. The state will only grant you driving privileges once you have shown verifiable proof that the device is installed in your vehicle. Considering all of the other fines, costs and fees associated with a DWI conviction, the last thing someone needs is more expenses.
The only way to prevent having to deal with the cost and inconvenience of an ignition interlock device is to put forward the strongest defense against your DWI charges. Do not take you charges lightly or you may find yourself burdened by an ignition interlock device and all of the other consequences of a DWI conviction.
