My smart start malfunctioned and the company disconnected it. This caused my license to be suspended.
I had a DUI in Oct 2010 and another in Jan 2011 and went through a sobriety program which I finished in record time and have remained 100% sober since. I have not had one drop of alcohol in almost 3 years. One of the requirements of the program was to have an interlock device on my car. Well I was driving about a year ago and the device failed with an error message so I called the company. They told me to drive to their location, they said they had to disconnect and reconnect it and it would be fine they would just document it. However, as a result of this the Secretary of State suspended my license as a result. They believe I disconnected the Smart Start even though I have record from Smart Start that they disconnected it. My license is now suspended for another 2 years.

What are the chances of getting your license back?
My son got a DUI in jan 2013 and was off probation in July 2014. He still has the interlock device. He is applying to the state to get his license back and the annual report from his device shows a .03 back in July. He was able to start it two days later without it being serviced. Does that mean it was a false positive? Should he even try to get his license back ? Will that be a guaranteed denial ? He doesn't care if the keep the machine in he just wants to drive where he wants and have less restrictions. He indicates he hasn't drank since his arrest. Sounds like if he is going to submit the paperwork to the state he will have to admit to drinking.
I would kindly but strongly recommend your son consult with a lawyer who handles a lot of AHS cases (used to be called...

Can I sue a drunk driver who hit my park car
I was at work and the dishwasher came and told me a man just hit your car
That he was drunk doesn't add much but yes - his insurance should cover your damage and you can sue him if it doesn't.
