During this scene, the 40 year-old virgin should have definitely driven.
In Florida, the device he blew into to start her vehicle is known as an ignition-interlock device. Although she mentions that a “judge recommended it,” it was almost certainly ordered that she place it in her vehicle by the judge from her previous DUI arrest. Did you know that if you are placed on probation for a DUI and ordered to have an ignition-interlock device, you would be required to pay for it’s installation and per diem costs? Furthermore, having another individual blow into it so that you may drive would constitute a violation of her DUI probation terms.
If she were to be pulled over and arrested for DUI, she would not be eligible for the “Back on Track” program because she has a previous DUI arrest and caused a number of accidents when she grinds against a number of parked vehicles. Furthermore, assuming she was arrested for the crime of DUI within 5 years of her previous DUI arrest and conviction, she would be facing enhanced statutorily required penalties including a minimum of 10 days in jail, 30 day vehicle impoundment, and a 5 year license suspension.
