A new Kansas law allows suspended drivers to install ignition interlock devices (IID) in their vehicles in order to drive on a restricted basis during the initial suspension period. A minimum 45 days (90 days if driver refuses) must be served on suspension before the DMV will issue a Permit. The Permit allows the driver to legally drive so long as it is within the restrictions outlined in the Permit. However, I have noticed an increase in younger suspended drivers who continue to drive without the required IID. The penalty for a first offense is that the ‘restricted period' starts over, plus a fine to the court. You simply can not circumvent the process and believe to be in the clear after a year (or more, depending on length of suspension) has run. The DMV will require proof of the installation of the device on file for a full year or more before lifting the suspension. The average monthly cost is $65 to maintain the device and installation fees vary.
