New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/11/2017 -- Ignition interlock device is an advanced breathalyser installed in vehicles to measure the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of the driver, wherein the driver needs to blow breath into the device to give his breath sample. If the alcohol content in the breath sample is more than pre-set limit of the device, the vehicle would not start. Ignition interlock device is used as a tool against drunk driving.

The ignition interlock device can be used by drivers convicted of DUI as well as by voluntary users who are not convicted of DUI. In order to use this device, the user needs to pay a number of fees, such as installation charges, monitoring fees, device calibration charges, etc. Use of ignition interlock device helps the convicted driver to regain his license much before the completion of his suspension period.
