Exception for Employer-Owned Vehicles No Longer Applies With Regard to Ignition Interlock Devices

In most circumstances, a person convicted of a DUI in Arizona cannot drive a motor vehicle without a functioning certified ignition interlock device for at least 12 months. Prior to September 13, 2013, a person required to install an interlock device in their vehicle could drive their employer-owned vehicle(s) in the course and scope of their employment without an interlock device as long as they had proof that they notified their employer of any driving restrictions they had as a result of their DUI conviction. As of September 13, however, the exception for employer-owned vehicles no longer applies. Now, if you’re convicted of a DUI, an interlock device must be installed in any company vehicle you drive. It does not appear that employers must comply with this requirement, meaning your job may be in jeopardy if you are convicted of a DUI.  

If you are charged with a DUI offense, you face a number of possible consequences: jail time, fees and fines, driving restrictions, and more. An attorney can help you navigate through this process and discuss the alternatives available to you each step of the way.
