Ignition Interlock Devices

A person may apply for an ignition interlock driver's license anytime, including immediately after receiving the notices under RCW 46.320.308 or after his or her license is suspended, revoked, or denied.

The installation of an ignition interlock device is not necessary on vehicles owned, leased, or rented by a person's employer and on those vehicles whose care and/or maintenance is the temporary responsibility of the employer, and driven at the direction of a person's employer as a requirement of employment during working hours. The person must provide the Department of Licensing with a declaration pursuant to RCW 9A.72.085 from his or her employer stating that the person's employment requires the person to operate a vehicle owned by the employer or other persons during working hours.

My Legal Commentary
The installation of an IID represents a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it allows a person to continue driving under inconvenience and payment of fees as well as costs. On the other hand, an IID Driver's License may be cancelled if the holder has been convicted of driving a vehicle in violation of court-ordered or Department of Licensing conditions.

If a driver so chooses, he or she can avoid driving altogether for the suspension or revocation period. However, the inconvenience of public transportation must be weighed against the monthly costs and presence of the IID which can be humiliating and quite expensive.

The Department may waive the requirement for the use of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) if it concludes that such devices are not reasonably available in the local area.

The installation of an IID is not necessarily on vehicles owned, leased, or rented by a person's employer and on those vehicles whose care and/or maintenance is the temporary responsibility of the employer, and driven at the direction of a person's employer as a requirement of employment during working hours. The person must provide the Department with a declaration pursuant to RCW 9A.72.085 from his or her employer stating that the person's employment requires the person to operate a vehicle owned by the employer or other persons during working hours.

The Ignition Interlock Device shall be calibrated to prevent the motor vehicle from being started when the breath sample provided has an alcohol concentration of 0.025 or more.

Anyone who manipulates an IID by having a higher breath alcohol concentration, failing to take a re-test and not meeting maintenance or repair requirements is looking for more trouble and more time. A prior plea deal could also fall apart.
