Ignition Interlock (In-Car Breathalyzer) Devices

What Is an Ignition Interlock Device?
An ignition interlock device (IID) is a small handheld car breathalyzer device that calculates the amount of alcohol in the breath of the person using it. Its installation is a typical requirement after a drunk driving offense (DUI, DWI, DUI, OWI, or OVI).

To put it simply, an interlock device functions as an in-car breathalyzer that keeps the user from starting their vehicle until they take a breath alcohol test. An ignition interlock device is the proper term for what is also known as an “in-car breathalyzer” or “car interlock” or “blow and go.”

How Does an Ignition Interlock Work?
If the IID records the breath test results (BAC or Blood Alcohol Concentration) over the legal limit, the vehicle won’t start. On the other hand, if the BAC is registered below the limit, the vehicle will start. The IID needs to be serviced and calibrated on a regular basis at an authorized service center. State law determines the length between these appointments, but they generally occur every 30, 60, or 90 days.
How an Ignition Interlock Device Is Installed
Interlocks can differ from each other in several ways and the IID you receive depends on the legal requirements set by each individual state and the specifics of your DWI/DUI/OWI. Your device may come with or without a camera, in addition to real-time reporting or other additional features.
