Suspects Allegedly Attempted to Bypass Ignition Interlock Device
MINEOLA — Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced the arrest of 25 convicted drunk drivers for allegedly attempting to bypass ignition interlock devices installed on their cars. During a 10-day sweep, investigators followed 141 offenders who were required to have the device in their car, and 25 were arrested and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device. The device became mandatory in 2010, requiring drivers to pass a breath test in order to start a vehicle, along with rolling re-tests until the vehicle is stopped and turned off.
