Why your Ignition Interlock Device is a friend, not an enemy

At Wolff & Sonderhouse, LLP, we know that nobody wants to have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in their vehicle. These devices require you to blow into them, and if you have the smallest amount of alcohol on your breath, the device will render your car undrivable. You will also have to intermittently blow into the device while operating your vehicle.
