What is a breath alcohol ignition interlock device?

As an Illinois resident who is currently facing DUI-related charges, it is important to understand how the state treats DUI-related crimes. If you are convicted, you could face a number of repercussions outside of fines. Today, we will look into breath alcohol ignition interlock devices, also known as BAIID.

How are first time DUI offenses treated?

As a resident of Illinois who is currently up against DUI-related charges, you likely know just how harsh these potential penalties are if you are convicted. Illinois takes DUI crimes very seriously and because of that, it is important to take your defense just as seriously.

Driving privileges after a drunk driving conviction

For residents in Illinois who have been convicted of an offense for driving under the influence of alcohol, losing their driving privileges can represent a major hardship. It can impede their ability to get to and from work, to get medical care when needed and to take care of their children or other family members. The state does offer some programs via which people can regain the ability to drive and these involve installing breath alcohol ignition interlock devices.

Understanding how alcohol gets into the lungs

The common perception of a drunk driver is one standing on the side of a road in Naperville blowing into a hand-held breath measurement device to determine the blood-alcohol content. Yet the comparison of the two elements being measured in this scenario (one's breath and their BAC) might prompt many to ask why law enforcement would measure a person's breath to determine the concentration of alcohol in their blood. Understanding how alcohol ends up in one's breath may help those facing DUI charges to challenge the results of breath test measurements being used against them.
