Man accused of operating car without ignition interlock devicePosted: 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.
