Is there any type of financial aid or help with getting the $90 a month payment for having an interlock installed in my car?

I cannot afford $90 a month. I’m a full-time student who works 3 days a week.

Hello. Sometimes there are options. Also, in certain circumstances, there has been an option to forego having a driver's license for a time in lieu of using the interlock, and there can definitely be reasons to choose such an option, if available. Do confer with an attorney licensed in the involved state. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.
