Acetone on your breath can lead to a false DWI

Imagine driving home from work one night. During your evening commute through Queens, a police officer pulls you over. You had been feeling a bit off, dizzy even, so you were not totally surprised when the officer asked if you had been drinking. You were surprised, however, when the breathalyzer test came back positive for alcohol. You had not had a drop of alcohol since the weekend, so there was no possible way the test could be correct. Unfortunately, the officer's first reaction was to arrest you for driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Failing to install an ignition interlock after a DWI is a crime

Under New York state law (“Leandra’s Law”), all people convicted of a driving while intoxicated charge must install an ignition interlock device in all vehicles they own or operate. It is a crime to drive without an ignition interlock device when your license is restricted in such a way. Doing so is a misdemeanor.
