A: If you have an interlock restriction on your license that means ANY vehicle you drive must have an ignition interlock equipped. Driving without an interlock is a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months jail, $2500 fine, and 3 years probation. That's the absolute maximum. Furthermore, if convicted the time period for the ignition interlock requirement will be extended by not more than one year.

If you or someone you know is charged with violating an interlock restriction, he or she should seriously consider scheduling a consultation with an consulting to discuss the case.

Hope that helps!
