The DUI laws in Los Angeles California require the installation of an ignition interlock on all vehicles owned by a person convicted of a DUI. The question is often asked, how do you I get around this requirement? There is a possible exemption from compliance with this pilot program if within 30 days of the notification of the IID requirement, the person certifies to the department all of the following:
• The person does not own a vehicle.
• The person does not have access to a vehicle at his or her residence.
• The person no longer has access to the vehicle being driven by the person at the time of arrest for a violation that subsequently resulted in a conviction for a violation of VC §23152 or VC §23153.
• The person acknowledges that he or she is only allowed to drive a vehicle that is fitted with a functioning ignition interlock device.
• The person acknowledges that he or she is required to have a valid driver license before he or she can drive.
• The person is subject to the requirements of this section
When he or she purchases or has access to a vehicle. Installation of an IID device on car(s) does not allow the person to drive without a valid driver license. For the purposes of this pilot program, vehicle does not include a motorcycle until the state certifi es an IID that can be installed on a motorcycle. Further, a person subject to an IID restriction shall not operate a motorcycle for the duration of the IID restriction period.
