How Ignition Interlock devices work.

A breathalyzer, about the size of a cell phone, is installed in a vehicle to prevent it from starting if the driver’s Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC) exceeds the state’s interlock limit.

These systems increase public safety while still caring for the dignity of the offender.

What the data says.

There are currently 35 states and the District of Columbia that have first-offender laws that require the use of ignition interlocks. In these states, drunk driving offenders with interlock devices are required to upload data about their attempts to start their vehicles. Our manufacturers collect data and report to monitoring authorities who then adjudicate cases involving offenders.

Through this data, we are able to provide comprehensive statistics about how many intoxicated drivers have been stopped behind the wheel.
