An ignition interlock device (IID) is a device connected to the ignition, requiring the driver to breathe into it before starting the vehicle. This device detects the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of the driver, and whenever the concentration is above the legal limit, the vehicle’s engine will not start. Further details about the ignition interlock device (IID) are available at the Driving Laws website.
