There has been a license reinstatement issue that I haven't seen one time in the past 18 years that I have seen happen two times in the past two months. After seeing people get granted for a restricted driving permit from a DUI revocation where a BAIID device is mandatory, the BAIID devision at the Secretary of State gives these petitioners 14 days to get the BAIID device installed in their car. What happens if the BAIID isn't installed in a car in those 14 days. The restricted driving permit is cancelled and the petitioner has to start the whole process over again.
This is not fair. What if the petitioner didn't own a car yet. This means that after being granted for the restricted driving permit the petitioner never drove on the permit at all because they were waiting to be able to afford a car. It would take a lot to purchase a car and have a BAIID installed in two weeks after having not driven for several years. The 14 day time limit is flawed.
What if the person was on vacation or out of state when the 14 day clock starts ticking against them. I understand we want those who have a successful license reinstatement hearing to install the BAIID device, but we also should be more flexible in allowing for a few more days if the petitioner can give a written excuse for the delay.
