Ignition Interlock
Ignition Interlock  
This is a statutorily mandated requirement for offenders convicted of Driving Under the Influence. In this program, a device is attached to the offender's car which prohibits it from starting unless the offender is alcohol free. The ignition interlock is a device that is attached to the offender's car which prohibits it from staring when the driver has been drinking. The driver must blow into this device before starting the car. The equipment records the blood alcohol level and photograph of the driver, and detects any tampering or circumvention of the device. Additionally, while driving, the operator will be required to give breath samples randomly. If the operator tests positive while driving, the car's horn will sound, and its lights will flash on and off. Any tampering or circumvention of the interlock device is a separate offense (Class I misdemeanor).
