How long you’ll be required to lease, maintain, and use an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) in New Jersey correlates directly with whether you are a first, second, or third offender.
For first offenders, the judge may, or may not, order you to use the device for six months to a year once your license is reinstated.
If your BAC was above 0.15%, the judge has no discretion in the matter. You will be required to use it for six months to a year.
This isn’t simply an inconvenient punishment when it comes to starting your car.
You’ll have to pay to lease the device from one of a handful of companies in New Jersey licensed to install them, and every 30 days, you’ll have to take your car in to have the device calibrated, and you will pay the bill.
