In NY they are being ordered both ways. I've seen 6 months probation and 3 years of interlock.
Hi Judy, There was a stipulation for when I was on probation that I must drive with an interlock! I was even granted a license after 6 months on probation with the lock, but I hated it so much, my car kept stalling in traffic, not to mention the expense, that I then turned in my license. My probation period ends next month after being on for 3 years. I'm worried because 20 years ago I had a previous DWI and when I called Albany they said probation has to stipulate I don't need an ignition lock anymore. I have been through 3 PO's, and my most recent probation officer has never even met me. I call in on the phone. I have met all conditions of probation, I was in a certified weekly program for a year, and I haven't been in any trouble. I tried to call my PO, but she is on vacation for the next 2 weeks. My life has become so dependent on others driving me around, I have so learned my lesson, and just want my license back, but w/out the lock! Thanks for your quick response!
