You may get 5 violations a month but sometimes it depends on how bad. I believe if you blow .05 its an automatic violation. But if you blew a .12 i dont think they treat them the same. They might, but the fact is that when you read the report it shows that the machine stopped a guy from driving while impaired. Now if you had a false positive and you know that then I would wait a few mins and swish some water and then try again. Cause when you show a good reading after a false positive then when they read the report it likely shows a contamination. Your state should have a sheet describing whats a violation.
Like I stated before. If you cannot stop drinking then I would get a good personal breathalyzer and use that to gauge your BAC before trying the interlock. Cause what happened was that the machine did its job.
