Alcohol Ignition Interlocks

An Alcohol Ignition Interlock is a breathalyser that prevents the vehicle from starting. When the driver blows into the handset, an alcohol specific sensor analyses the breath sample and calculates the Breath Alcohol. The interlock is connected to the vehicles ignition system. The engine can be started only if the Breath Alcohol is below a designated limit.
