Which Interlock Should I Get?

If you’re faced with the decision about which ignition interlock to get installed on your vehicle, you may be asking “What interlock is right for me?”

Do your homework. Not all ignition interlock devices are created alike. It’s an important decision – for a period of months, or even a year or more, the interlock device will be your companion on the road, helping you drive legally and safely.

So, what qualities should you look for in an interlock?

  • Small, discreet size. No one wants a big, visible interlock on their dashboard. Some of the devices out there are as almost as large as paperback books. You’ll want to opt for an interlock that is small enough to be tucked away in the palm of your hand and be unobtrusive on the dashboard.
  • Proven reliability. When you get in your car or truck, you expect to be on the road right away. That means your ignition interlock device needs to check your breath accurately and deliver a “pass” right away. That takes advanced and accurate alcohol-specific fuel cell technology.
  • Ease of use. You need to keep your mind on your driving. An ignition interlock device should be easy to use, so you can blow breath tests when you need to without taking your eyes from the road.
  • Wide acceptance. If you travel to another state, you want to make sure ignition interlock provider is there to support you.  Some providers are only certified in a small number of states, so if you want to go for an extended stay out-of-state, you won’t be able to make your monitoring appointment.
  • Experience. An ignition interlock is the link between you and the freedom to drive. You want a company with a lot of experience in every aspect of the field, from technology to installation and monitoring to local regulations.
