I have a had a Smart Start on my car for 15 months more than my original requirement due to faulty violations. What are options
I was ordered to have an interlock on my car for 1 year as of Dec 2012. Throughout that time I received numerous letters about violations that I didn't commit (Tampering, Circumvent, Requesting someone to blow, etc.) I tried speaking with DMV, SmartStart, and my PO. I'm off probation. Noone seems to have an answer about how to have this resolved.. The tech that I bring it to for re-cal said he can't help me, its a DMV thing. I've had 4 separate units installed. Now the device goes off every 3 minutes, and sometimes doesn't even beep or time my blow period until lockout. I've tried pulling my records, but it's no longer an option for customers to access this via the SmartStart hotline. I can't even speak to a rep with the company, get put on hold, then they hang up. Please advise.
Trying to get what resolved? You'd have to prove the machine screwed up. Call a local DUI attorney for help.
