An ignition interlock device (IID) is a breathalyzer device that is installed in an individual’s vehicle and wired to the ignition. To start the vehicle, a driver must blow into a mouthpiece without registering a blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If the device detects alcohol, it prevents the engine from starting.
