WHAT IS AN IGNITION INTERLOCK DEVICE?
An Ignition Interlock device is an instrument that is connected from your vehicle’s ignition system to a breath analyzer that measures a driver’s alcohol concentration. The driver must blow into a mouthpiece connected to the device, and if the device registers a reading of a .025 or higher breath alcohol content, it will not allow the vehicle to start or operate. This device will also ask for additional retests while the vehicle is being operated. It is not necessary to stop driving to submit to retesting. Your vehicle must be returned to the service provider every 30 days to review testing results and calibration information stored by the device.
