I was convicted of DWI and installed a Ignition interlock in one of my vehicles( I have four vehicles). I also have an employee exemption that allows me to drive my company vehicles without interlock as long as I am working. My question is can My fiancé drive one of my other vehicles without being pulled over all the time and officers searching for an interlock device or do they already know which trucks have them installed.
The officer can determine which vehicle has an interlock by running the license plate. However, any stop of the vehicle must be supported by reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed.
If you have a license that is limited to a vehicle with interlock and an officer runs a plate that comes back registered to you without an interlock, arguably, the officer could state that he has a reasonable suspicion that your driving privileges are being exceeded and stop the vehicle SO LONG as he is unable to determine that the driver is not you before the stop

Officers will have this information. However, the fact that a vehicle is equip with interlock is not a basis for police to pull over a vehicle. Even if the vehicle has whiskey plates.
