What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

An ignition interlock device (IID) is essentially a portable Breathalyzer test that is installed in a vehicle. Before the vehicle can be started, the driver must blow into the IID. If the individual’s blood alcohol content level registers above the designated limit, the car will not start.

In certain counties in California (including Alameda County, Tulare County, Los Angeles County, and Sacramento County), an individual who is convicted of drunk driving for the first time must install an ignition interlock device in his or her car. Otherwise, an IID is typically installed after an individual is convicted of DUI for the second or subsequent time.

The length of time an individual is required to have an IID installed in his or her car varies, but can range from a few months to a few years. An IID can cost a lot of money. Many companies charge individuals a daily rental fee, plus the cost of installing the device.
