    Answered . Driving without interlock is a class 1 traffic misdemeanor. It does not carry mandatory jail, but jail is a realistic possibility. You are also facing a license revocation of 1 year or the length of time remaining on the restricted license, whichever is longer.

    These cases are hard to fight if the officer had a lawfully reason to contact you, but if you want to ensure that you get the best outcome possible you should consider hiring an experienced traffic attorney.
