Ignition Interlock

What is Ignition Interlock? 

Just blow into your Ignition Interlock Device to provide a breath test sample in order to start the vehicle. It measures your Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC).

The car breathalyzer tracks your vehicle activity anytime someone attempts to start the vehicle and while anyone is driving. The data provides a record of violations to your state/state authority.
