What Is an Ignition Interlock?

 

An ignition interlock device is a breathalyzer system that is installed into a vehicle in order to prevent anyone that is over the legal limit from driving. The vehicle operator is required to pass a breath test before they are allowed to drive. If the ignition interlock registers an alcohol concentration below the legal limit, the vehicle will start. However, if the alcohol concentration measures above the legal limit, the vehicle will not start. The driver will also be required to take periodic retests. This will help to ensure that alcohol has not been consumed after the initial test. The device is most commonly used as a way to help suspended drivers regain their driving privileges and may also be used to help those seeking to combat personal drinking issues.
