If you’d done this right away it’d make perfect sense. You waited 7 years, and are complaining because it seems like it no longer makes sense, but it IS appropriate to the original situation, and part of the sentence. So yes, you’re on a kind of probation – because you didn’t do this step originally. Great that you don’t need it, but a sentence doesn’t stop on the day you figure out what it’s about. It’s fixed in advance. It’s not remotely a civil violation. It’s part of a conviction.
If it’s draining your battery than it’s a faulty installation.
Yes, some will continue to drive drunk and this device will identify some of them. And that’s why it was assigned to you — because the court can’t look at someone and know whether they’re going to be the one who’s learned.
It’s completely false to claim it’s a money pit. You yourself say it – some people even after everything – will drive drunk. It’s to identify them and get them off the road. For some people, quite a few here, it helps them get on board with no driving drunk. Some folks figure it out on day one — but it’s not everyone — so this is about the public protecting itself. It’s not a perfect way to deal with alcoholism, nor irresponsibly driving, but until a great way is invented — this IS about that, not money. And consider what I said before, injured people pay MORE per month, than these devices cost.
