    Answered . This question is best answered by an attorney who practices DWI law in Austin. There are several Austin DWI lawyers who post regularly here, and they can best answer your question, as all judges have different proclivities. In Houston, you could have the in-home device removed if you had the interlock device installed in your vehicle. Typically, it is an either or proposition. There is only one judge I can think of, who routinely requires both. Hope this helps

    Answered . Simple answer is NO. They'll usually do one or the other. Ignition Interlock is usually cheaper.
