Can I request probation modification with the removal of interlock device with a clean Interlock record halfway threw probation?
I have served a year and a half on a 3 year probation for a first offense simple DUI from the state of New York. I live in CT and my CT license was never suspended. Payed fines to NY DMV. I was told after sentencing that I can drive anytime with the interlock on my car. I have a clean record, as I have abstained from alcohol and joined a community that being AA. I have completed the drug and alcohol classes and paid all fines. Because of financial hardship, can I request a modification of my current probation for just the removal of the interlock or financial assistance? I check in every month with robocop and will comply for the remainder of my probation. BTW my lawyer had one year with the interlock before the DA last minute changed it to 3 years.

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.
