The ignition interlock is blood alcohol screening device which is placed in your car and connected to your vehicle’s ignition system. Once installed it prevents the operation of a motor vehicle if a driver’s blood alcohol is over a pre-set limit. Once the vehicle has started the driver is required to provide random samples of breath during travel.
A person convicted of impaired driving may qualify to apply for ignition interlock after a period of time has passed under suspension. This program can be quite costly. There is a program fee, an installation fee and a monthly monitoring fee.
