Is it okay to stop to buy groceries on the way home from work with a limited driving privilege? My limited driving privilege with an ignition interlock only allows me to drive for work-related purposes but say if there's a grocery store on the same road that leads to my house, would it be a problem if a cop questions me for any reason? Or am I way over-thinking this? My limited driving privilege allows me to drive 24/7 for work related purposes and I don't plan on misusing it but it is really hard to live without being able to get basic necessities.
It is a privilege to drive the vehicle. It is limited to work related things only. However, the chances of you getting pulled over are limited. Use your best judgement.
You must only drive for the purposes that your limited driving privilege allows. However, if you choose to use it for another purposes such as going to the grocery store just be very careful! Best of luck!
Since buying groceries is not work related then yes that would be a problem if an officer happened to stop you. Even with it being on the route. You can take public transportation, a cab, ask a friend or family member to drive, walk, etc. when you need to get "basic necessities".
