For instance, in Wisconsin, if you have an operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant first offense and you have a test result under a .15, you are not required to install an Ignition interlock Device on your vehicle. The complicating factor here is that if you are charged with a first offense OWI but you have a prior offense in your lifetime, even one that is more than ten years old and an alcohol concentration under .15, you would still be required to install an Ignition Interlock Device on your vehicle if convicted. Many individuals do not understand this complication to OWI law in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, there are significant complicating factors in a drunk driving case. If you are charged with an OWI in Wisconsin, it is important that you take an opportunity to speak with an attorney well versed in OWI laws.
