Effective August 15, 2010, New York has new and enhanced penalties for those convicted of DWI. Leandra's Law mandates that all defendants convicted of Driving While Intoxicated under specified subdivisions of the Vehicle and Traffic Law and Penal Law, be required to install an ignition interlock device on their vehicles. Specifically, this means all vehicles driven, borrowed, owned or registered by the defendant. The interlock device must be in place for at least 6 months, but a Court can order a longer period. Driving a vehicle that is not equipped with the device, during the specified period, is a misdemeanor and will result in another arrest and additional penalties. The bottom line is, do not drink and drive. It’s not worth it.

I've seen a guy get their friend to blow because he's sober and the driver drive while drinking again. Maybe not drunk but definitely drinking while drinking. I wonder how long until a device to blow into the interlock device?

In some states they have a little camera to see who is blowing.

It's basically a breathalyzer linked to your ignition. You have to blow into it before the car will start. If you have alcohol on your breath, the car will not start.
The ones in IL also randomly go off, and if you don't blow or fail it either shuts the car off or alerts authorities.
