The commitment required when you have a car breathalyzer or an ignition interlock device is vital to your successful recovery after a DUI. Whether you have the device for a few months or over a year, each time you submit a breath sample, you are proving that commitment to yourself, your loved ones and the people in charge of monitoring your sober driving record. Those ignition interlock reports are your “golden ticket” to moving past your DUI conviction, and ensuring they get to the right people is a big part of the process.
Lucky for you, your responsibility pretty much begins and ends with sober driving and attending your ignition interlock service appointments. Your ignition interlock reports and the data they contain are collected during your service appointments, and then transmitted to the proper authority. That can be your parole officer, probation officer, or a state agency that has been designated as your monitoring authority. Your DMV or state motor vehicle agency will likely be a part of that loop, as well, especially if your ignition interlock requirement is part of an administrative license suspension or revocation.
The best thing about your ignition interlock requirement is that you have a chance to continue to prove your commitment to sober driving. You have the facts and data that show, despite the error you made when you were driving under the influence of alcohol, that you intend to always remain sober when driving. As long as that is a part of your recovery plan, your ignition interlock service provider can take over from there, especially where your data reports are concerned. They handle all of the paperwork, you get a chance at a fresh start, and the roads are ultimately safer for everyone’s hard work and personal (and professional) commitments!
