Ignition Interlock Devices in Wisconsin

  • Birdsall Obear

According to Wisconsin law, if your BAC is .15 or above, your charge is a repeat OWI offense.  If you refuse chemical testing when your arrest occurs, you will be required to install an ignition interlock device in each vehicle you own. An ignition interlock device poses as a personal breathalyzer. You are required to blow into the device each time you aim to start your vehicle, in order to determine your BAC level. If your BAC level is above the permitted limit, then your car will not start.

Aside from the embarrassment that comes along with an ignition interlock device installation, being convicted of a Wisconsin OWI has the potential to come with many other additional consequences. Even for a first offense, you could face heavy fines, license suspension and a criminal record. In order to guard your reputation, integrity and freedom, contact Birdsall Obear & Associates LLC in the face of an OWI charge. Our DUI attorneys have a proven success track record.
