This may be old news to some, but it caught me completely offguard.
A relative of mine in Iowa just recently was recently charged with a DWI. Being from Kansas/MO I gave him my sympathies and asked what the fine/penalty ended up being. The monetary costs and suspended license didn't shock me all that much, but the use of an ignition interlock device as a requirement to receive a temporary license did. I honestly had never heard of the thing and thought he was pulling my leg. Anyone ever had or known someone with one of these bad boys?

It was his first, but knowing my cousin he was extremely far gone.
I wouldn't think it would be that hard to get around either. Suppose you were out at a bar and had a few too many. Just stagger over to one of the girls and say "If I pay you ten bucks could you go out to my car and blow on my thing."
