Illinois license reinstatement questions.


How often do clients have BAIID violations when on a restricted driving permit?

Posted by John Callahan | May 07, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a drivers license attorney in the state of Illinois, I have often been asked by my clients and others how often do clients have a BAIID violation while driving on arestricted driving permit from the Secretary of State? I would say that many of my clients and many other people have contacted me who have had some form of violation during the restricted driving permit or at least a warning sign pop-up from the device itself. I have seen violations that occurred when a person ate dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen and then left and blew into the device and it registered greater than a .08.

As an attorney, I have also seen situations where a female sprayed perfume in her car because the device to register a warning as well. In addition, mouthwash, lighter fluid, and cigarettes have also been known to give a high reading which would cause the BAIID device to warn or lockout.

Should you be driving on a restricted driving permit and have the BAIID device have a problem you should contact your attorney prior to writing the letter of explanation to the Secretary of State. What I have found is that most reasonable explanations are accepted by the BAIID the program monitors. Once the monitors find your reasoning acceptable it will not even be a remote issue at the full reinstatement hearing with the Secretary of State.

Should you have any questions about license reinstatement you can always feel free to give me a call.
