I started my car from home ( around noon, tested .000 on IID ), stopped at the gas station to get gas and a drink. Restarted car ( tested .000 as well ). Rolling retest on the way to my girlfriend's house from there, tested a .010. Will this be seen as a violation by my P.O. since I am supposed to abstain from alcohol? I did not drink at all that day and this is my first month having the IID, and I've already had several problems with it, none alcohol related, but with faulty equipment. I just don't want to get in trouble for following rules. This device is only making my path of sobriety more difficult.
Document your problems with the machine. The IID device is not always perfect. Discuss these problems with your PO as quickly as possible, preferably before your PO receives a report from the company monitoring the IID. You may need to have the unit exchanged if it is giving faulty readings.
