It’s important not to leave your vehicle running with your interlock unattended

POSTED ON: 09/30/2021

If you have an ignition interlock because of a DWI or DUI, your device is connected to your vehicle and works alongside it. It’s important not to leave your vehicle running with your IID unattended.

Don’t leave your vehicle running if you're not in it

There are times when you may take your initial ignition interlock test to start your vehicle then go back inside the house for a short time because you forgot something. Or you may start your car before it's time to leave to allow time for your vehicle to warm up during cooler weather or cool off during hotter weather.

Don't risk a program violation

Your breathalyzer device may prompt for a re-test when you’re not in the vehicle. If you don't return to the vehicle in time, the test window for that re-test may expire.

Your ignition interlock device will register this as a skipped rolling re-test which can be considered a violation of your program requirements. This can mean various consequences depending on your program.

Save yourself a lot of stress

It’s very important to remember not to leave your vehicle unattended while it is on if you have an ignition interlock installed. Your court or state-ordered program can be affected. You should also make sure to check your device for rolling re-test prompts before exiting your vehicle. These missed tests could cause violations, and we’d hate for that to happen! Stay alert to your device, and stay aware of your program's requirements.
