IID or Ignition Interlock Device

Ignition interlock devices are in-vehicle devices that are usually issued by a local authority to ensure that a driver is not operating a vehicle while impaired by alcohol. Generally these devices can allow someone who has received a DUI/DWI charge with getting their driving privileges reinstated. Automotive safety and law enforcement have always prioritized driver sobriety, leading to the adoption of various devices that ensure this. An ignition interlock device is the most cost-effective way to accomplish this and can be referred to in different ways depending on the state or region they are issued. Learn more about IIDs here.

The Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID)

While the name might sound different, the Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device, or BAIID, serves the same fundamental purpose as the IID. The emphasis here is on the device’s ability to measure breath alcohol levels, ensuring the driver’s sobriety before the vehicle is operational.

Car Breathalyzer

Many might recognize the term “breathalyzer” from its use in law enforcement. When it comes to vehicles, a car breathalyzer accomplishes the same purpose as IIDs and BAIIDs, ensuring a vehicle can only be operated under safe conditions. Learn more about car breathalyzers.

It’s worth noting that different states might refer to ignition interlock devices using varying names in their local laws and regulations. Whether it’s BAIID, IID, or car breathalyzer, they all aim to achieve the same goal: ensuring driver sobriety for safer roads.

When it comes to automotive safety and alcohol monitoring, the main goal remains clear: safeguarding lives on the road.
