Intoxalock is one of the most common brands of ignition interlock devices (IIDs). State law in New Jersey requires first-time DUI offenders with a blood alcohol count of .08 percent to .10 percent to have an IID installed in their vehicle for three months. The length of time that the IID must be installed increases with the severity of the offense.
To have this device installed, you’ll need to visit a qualified mechanic to get the job done. At Lentz Auto Body, our team of Intoxalock installers in Middletown, NJ has you covered when you need to outfit your vehicle with the device for a certain length of time.
Here are a few common questions we get about Intoxalock installation.
How long does it take to install the device?
We encourage you to schedule an appointment in advance to have the work done. It will take us one or two hours to get the job done—the length of time can vary a bit based on the make, model and year of the vehicle. You can trust that we will get the job done as quickly as we can without compromising the installation quality.
Am I able to drive to the technician to get it installed?
Your legal judgment will likely specifically outlaw you from driving without an IID installed on your vehicle. If you have had your driving privileges revoked or suspended outside of the use of an IID, you’ll need to have another person with a valid license drive you in your vehicle to the appointment. You’ll want to make sure you have a family member or friend who’s free and can help you out.
Will the IID cause any damage or lasting effects to my vehicle?
It is a common concern for people who must have IIDs installed on their vehicle that it will have some sort of lasting effect. However, there is no cause for concern—when the device is installed correctly, it will not cause any damage to your vehicle. Of course, this is just one reason why it’s so important to work with a mechanic who is actually qualified to do this kind of work and who performs it on a regular basis. Make sure your Intoxalock installer is trained and certified in the work they’re doing so you can trust there will not be any unwanted effects on your car.
Are there any warranties or protections on the breathalyzer device?
The IID does not have any automatic protections in the event of a car accident, natural disaster or theft unless you add on extra device protection through a comprehensive protection plan. This isn’t a particularly expensive plan, so it’s a good idea if you want an extra form of insurance to give you some peace of mind.
Can you install the IID on a motorcycle?
Most states do not allow drivers to have IIDs installed on motorcycles, and that is not work that we do here.
