Any way to avoid having an ignition interlock device installed in my car after husband convicted of second dui?
My husband has been convicted of a second dui and had his license suspended for 3 years. I have been told that all cars associated with our address will have to be fitted with an ignition interlock device. Does that include cars that are not owned by my husband? At the moment my car is jointly owned but I plan to have that changed so I am sole owner. I do not drink and am totally mortified at the thought of having to blow into the device every time I get in the car. I sometimes pick up or drop off our preschooler and friends at school or at home after play dates and am concerned about how this is going to look to other parents and the ramifications this might have for our child. Who wants to entrust their child to someone with this device in their car? I do not want me or my child to have to be penalized for my husbands stupidity. Short of moving to a different address is there any way I can avoid having this device placed in my car?

1 year suspension each. Do I just consider this a mistake on DMV part? 2nd conviction record has 0 points (this was a violation of probation because of the other DWI). Do I contact DMV for clarification, remain mute, assume additional 3 year suspension? Any thoughts?
