If you refuse to blow in the breathalyzer, your license will be immediately suspended and subsequently revoked for one year with no access to a conditional license. If you blow in the breathalyzer, your license will be suspended for the first 30 days of the case, and then you will have access to a conditional license. This license allows driving to and from work, while working if necessary, to and from the doctor for you or a family member, to and from school, to and from anything related to your court case including court dates, law office meetings, probation, community service, therapy programs, etc. In addition, it allows a certain window of time for running errands. License sanctions at the conclusion of the case depend on the outcome of the case. However, it is overwhelmingly likely that once you get the pre-conviction conditional license, your driving privilege will continue uninterrupted even after the conclusion of your case. Depending upon the outcome of the case, an ignition interlock device may be required to be installed in your vehicle. This is essentially a breathalyzer which must be blown into before the key will be able to be turned in the ignition. If alcohol is detected in your breath, the ignition will not function. This may be standard equipment in all cars someday, but for now it is part of the driver’s license sanction in many DWI cases. Vehicle seizures are a part of many DWI cases. In many cases, return of the vehicle can be negotiated with the County Attorney’s Office. In some, the County will oppose return of the vehicle, and your lawyer has certain remedies he can pursue. In some cases, the vehicle can be returned during the pendency of the case upon the posting of a bond. Then the issue of the ultimate fate of the vehicle can be addressed upon the conclusion of the case.
