How does an IID work?
How does an IID work? An ignition interlock device, or IID, is a device that is installed in a vehicle to prevent the vehicle from starting if the driver has been drinking. Lifesafer Ignition Interlock is a trusted and reliable brand, recommended by courts and probation offices across the United States. Lifesafer IID’s are cost-effective and the most discreet in-car breathalyzer on the market.
Ignition Interlock Features
The way that the Lifesafer IID works is simple, when a driver gets into the vehicle, they must blow into the device. If the device detects any alcohol on the driver’s breath, the vehicle will not start. The device uses a fuel cell sensor, which is a type of sensor that is able to detect tiny amounts of alcohol. This means that the device is able to detect even trace amounts of alcohol, making it very effective at preventing drunk driving. In addition to preventing the vehicle from starting if the driver has been drinking, the Lifesafer IID also requires the driver to take random breath tests while driving.
Drunk Driving Prevention
In addition to preventing the vehicle from starting if the driver has been drinking, the Lifesafer IID also requires the driver to take random breath tests while driving. This is to ensure that the driver has not consumed alcohol after starting the vehicle. If the device detects alcohol during a random breath test, a loud warning sound warns the driver, and the driver will be required to pull over to take another breath test. If the device detects alcohol again, the vehicle will shut off, and the driver will be unable to start the vehicle again until a certain amount of time has passed.
IID Convenient Features
The Lifesafer IID also has a number of other features that make it a convenient and effective device to use. For example, it has a backlit display that makes it easy to read, even in low-light conditions. It also has a built-in tamper-proof mechanism that makes it difficult for someone to remove or bypass the device.
One of the key benefits of the Lifesafer IID is that it helps reduce the number of drunk driving incidents on the road, keeping the roads safer for all. When people know that they will be required to blow into an ignition interlock device before starting their vehicle, they are less likely to drink and drive. The random breath tests that the IID requires while driving act as a deterrent, making it less likely that someone will drink after they have started their vehicle.
Many states require people who have been convicted of drunk driving to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicle before they can have their driver’s license reinstated. By using the Lifesafer IID, people can regain their driving privileges, while also being safe on the road.
Overall, the Lifesafer IID is a powerful and discreet in-car breathalyzer for preventing drunk driving. Its ability to detect even trace amounts of alcohol, along with its random breath testing feature, make it a highly effective device. Its easy to use, tamper-proof design, and other convenient features make it a convenient and effective device for both individuals and organizations.
