About Ignition Interlock Devices
IIDs are installed on automobiles or other motor vehicles that test a driver's breath alcohol and prevent a vehicle from being started if a driver is alcohol-impaired. Twenty-five states require first-time offenders of Driving While Impaired or similar offenses, as part of their sentences, to use an IID. In addition, 21 states have IIDS as part of the sentencing options for repeat or High BrAC offenders.
Numerous studies have concluded that ignition interlock devices not only stop impaired individuals from driving but also have a significant impact in reducing repeat DWI offenses. There is an estimated 334,000 ignition interlock devices currently installed in vehicles in the United States.
