Ignition Interlock Programs Reduce Recidivism

Ignition Interlock Programs Reduce Recidivism

The benefit of ignition interlock devices is very well known, both during the time they are used, as well as after the devices are removed from a vehicle. Repeat DUI offenses are a concern in the headlines, as well as for law enforcement and other drivers on the road. Research shows that up to 90% of people who complete their ignition interlock requirements never receive another DUI violation.

Whether as a deterrent to drinking and driving, a safety measure for those convicted of DUI, or after the device has been removed from a car, an ignition interlock is a strong weapon in the fight to keep our streets safe from drunk drivers.
