The installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) is one of many penalties of a Wisconsin DUI. The WI DUI IID gets installed to the starter of any and all vehicles in the name of the Wisconsin drunk driving offender. This device takes readings of alcohol levels on the breath during start-up and intermittently while driving to ensure the driver has not consumed too many alcohol beverages prior to driving. If the driver has a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) over the legal limit of .08, the vehicle will not start.
IID Install Locations in Wisconsin
The judge will order the use of the IID for a Wisconsin DUI offender. The Wisconsin driver must show proof of the installation to the Court and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT). Do not be fooled by places offering installation of the IID, because not every service center is approved by the Wisconsin DOT. For a list of service locations approved in the state of Wisconsin check out the Wisconsin DOT website. Each service center is listed by county, city, and name of location.
Wisconsin IID Price and Length of Time
The WI DOT website lists the price of the install at each service center, along with the monthly fee, removal fee, and annual cost. The amount of time a Wisconsin DUI offender has the IID installed on each vehicle is determined by the number of Wisconsin DUI offenses and BAC for the current offense. The judge will make a determination; however, taking the initiative to install the IID before ordered by the Court is a mitigating factor (beneficial factor) in sentencing.
