In the United States, almost 30 people die everyday from car accidents caused directly by drunk driving. Drunk driving fatality rates have become so alarming that more states are joining Arizona in requiring mandatory installation of ignition interlock devices into vehicles of every convicted drunk driving offender. The ignition interlock device (IID) basically works like a Breathalyzer for your car.

The ignition interlock is just about the size of a cell phone and is placed on the car’s dashboard. Before the driver can start the engine, he or she must first exhale into the ignition interlock device. This gadget then analyzes the breath-alcohol concentration (BrAC) and calculates the equivalent blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Should the blood-alcohol concentration of the driver be higher than the legal breath-alcohol concentration limit, the ignition interlock will prevent the vehicle from starting.
