The crime of ignition interlock device violation is defined under RCW 46.20.740 as operating a motor vehicle without a functional ignition interlock device when required by official DOL record. This charge is a gross misdemeanor offense and carries a maximum sentence of 364 days in jail in a $5,000 fine. Typically, this charge results when a driver has been convicted of a DUI (or related offense) and is found driving without an interlock device during ignition interlock device. Accordingly, if you are charged with Negligent Driving, it is wise to speak with an attorney who regularly handles these types of cases as they are often complex with many details that can be easily overlooked.
