Man accused of operating car without ignition interlock device

Posted: Updated:

A Rockland man was arrested Sunday night in Yonkers for operating a vehicle without the ignition interlock device that he is legally required to have.

Javier Vazquez, a 39-year-old resident of Pomona, was stopped for a traffic violation on the Saw Mill River Parkway by a Westchester County police officer.

The ignition interlock device is required for all persons who have previous DWI-related convictions as part of Leandra's Law, which went into affect last month.

Vazquez was also arrested for driving without a license and having insufficient headlights. He is to report to Yonkers City court Oct. 14.
