I live in MO and have all my life. In December of 2010 i got a DUI in KS. I was given probation for a year no license for a year and now they want me to put an interlock device on my car. Since I live in MO and have a valid drivers license do I have to get the device installed?

I plead no contest to a dui charge in December of 2011 in Kansas (dui arrest was back in 2008, and I have had a valid license since 2008 due to improper paperwork by the officer).

In Iowa his license was suspended for 2 years, he served a 3-day jail sentence, did community service, met with a probation officer for 1 1/2 years, and attended mandated alcohol education classes and alcoholics anonymous meetings.

When he went to renew his license in MO he was told that it had been suspended for 5 years even though all his requirements had been successfully completed for IA. He now has no way to drive to work (which recently moved across the border to KS and may complicate things more). Isn't this a double penalty for something he did in IA and completed his sentence for?
Most states now report driving infractions to the driver's home state. The home state imposes a suspension pursuant to...
