Ignition Interlock Device Providers
As a result of a change in the law operative July 01 2010, people convicted of a DUI in Los Angeles will be required to install in their vehicle an ignition interlock device. This device is about the size of a cell phone and is able to measure alcohol on a persons breath. If a driver has a breath alcohol level of over .03%, the device will not allow the driver to start the vehicle.
Courts in Los Angeles County will be providing defendants with a list of approved providers. This list can also be viewed on the DMV's website www.dmv.ca.gov.
Companies providing IID installlation include;
Guardian Interlock Systems, (800) 499-0994
Autosense International (800) 325-2656
Lifesafer Interlock, Inc, (800) 210-8087
Consumer Safety Technology, Inc, (877) 777-5020
Smart Start Inc, (800) 880 3394
Alcohol Detection Systems Inc, (800) 786-7394
Alco Alert Interlock, Inc, (888) 663-9847
It remains to be seen how the change in the law will be applied and enforced in practice. However, it is one more hurdle to overcome for those arrested for DUI in Los Angeles and as defendants will be responsible for the cost, one more expense in an already expensive system.
