If you have been arrested for a NY DUI, chances are you may be required to install an ignition interlock. Since Leandra’s Law went into effect a year ago, NY DUI laws require DUI offenders to install an ignition interlock.
However, many NY DUI offenders have been able to avoid installing an interlock. They do so by transferring the title of their vehicle to a relative or someone they know. Furthermore, this is often done by the advice of their attorneys.
Currently, lawmakers are attempting to create an addendum to this law to plug this loophole. Soon enough, NY DUI laws will no longer allow DUI offenders to transfer their vehicle’s title. Therefore, if you are caught without installing your required ignition interlock, you could have a hard time getting out of trouble.
