First time DUI offenders may apply for a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) during a period of statutory summary suspension. Once the application for an MDDP is submitted, a BAIID (Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device) will be installed in that person’s vehicle.
Anyone who wishes to drive while their license is suspended for a DUI offense must have a BAIID installed in their car. If you refuse to participate in the BAIID program and are caught driving while your license is suspended, you may be charged with a Class 4 felony offense.
