I obtained my DUI in April of 2012 and had it installed recently October 2014. The delay was due to my grandmother being sick and needing a second caretaker. My end date for the Interlock device is June 11th 2015

I have high blood pressure meds I'm supposed to take 4 times a day. (I also take paxil, beta blockers & I took my diet pills (2 phentermen) that day, I rarely take anymore) I hadn't ate anything that day & was having a bad reaction to my meds. The chp claims he pulled me over for loud music (turned it down way before I saw chp). He makes me do all 3 sobriety tests 3 times each which I passed all of them. I take the breathe alayzer & pass w/ 0.00. He told me that everyone in this area is on drugs, told me my parents, friends my family were all on drugs; my parents are dead. I didn't do the blood test cuz after listening to him for over a 1 & 1/2 hours I said I've had enough of him bashing my deceased parents & my brother that was it. I've never been arrested before!

I was convicted of CAVC 14601.2 on 10/25/13 in Kern County. Upon renewing my CA DL two weeks ago my new license was followed by an order to install a IID from the DMV not the court for a term of 2 years. My question is since it has been over 14 months from my conviction if I am able to dispute the installation or at the least get the term reduced to a year or hopefully 6 months? Reason being is I am a federal employee and it is part of my duties to drive a government vehicle. The paperwork sent by the DMV says I am required to have an IID in every vehicle I operate. Also I complete my DUI 18 month program by the end of January 2015.
You should be able to operate a vehicle owned by your employer without having to install the IID. You will need to...
