IDAP in Oklahoma
When a person is charged with a DUI, they are in serious danger of having their license revoked. Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) is focused on forcing every accused driver into having an ignition interlock device (IID) placed on their car. This is commonly call the ‘blow and go,’ meaning you have to blow into it without alcohol on your breath before your vehicle will start and allow you to drive.
Impaired Driver Accountability Program
The Impaired Driver Accountability Program is a new fast-track program to an Ignition Interlock Device. This device forces a driver to breathe into a Breathalyzer and prove their sobriety before the car will start.
If a driver fails the test, they may face an extended period with the device before they are fully “rehabilitated.” The program offers an opportunity to not have a suspension on your driving record.
Is the IDAP Right For Me?
The simple answer is that it depends on the situation. The first problem with IDAP is that it requires a decision within 30 days, actually less to allow for processing. This normally will not be enough time for an attorney to secure the needed discovery and fully analyze the case. It is possible you could join IDAP and your attorney later learns of a defense that would have prevented this requirement—but it would be too late to change.
