This morning as I was about to leave for work , I blew into my Ignition Interlock device and it registered as a fail . 5 minutes later , it asked me to blow again and it failed a 2nd time . I am locked out for 4 days for service . I had to have my father pick me up and take me to work because I didn't want to risk having any more failed start - up attempts ; on the ride to work , we discussed what could possibly have triggered a false positive . I have not had a sip of alcohol since my arrest ( AggDWI ) , which was over a year ago . So many of my household items contain alcohol , from mouthwash & whitening strips , to cologne & body spray . Perhaps these caused it , but I'm sure the courts will believe their machine over the " drunk " . I'm NOT on probation ( cons . discharge ) . I appreciate any help .Requirements of my conditional discharge were to complete a Drinking Driver's Program, be evaluated and do treatment if necessary, and have the Interlock installed, all of which I've completed. I was not required to abstain from alcohol -- that was a personal choice, sparked from this life-changing mistake. Also paid $1250 to the court, and $3000 to my attorney. This is my first DWI (a misdemeanor) as well as my first failed sample. It's a class I device. I did not have the key in the ignition, nor was the car running at all, so I'm not sure what I could be charged for other than the breath sample, which I assure you was false. Also, does the IID company notify the DMV, the courts, or both?
