Ignition Interlock  
This is a statutorily mandated program for offenders convicted of a second offense DUI or first DUI offense with a BAC of .15 or higher. In this program, a device is attached to the offender's car which prohibits it from starting unless the offender is alcohol free. The offender must blow into this device before starting the car. The equipment logs the offender's blood alcohol level during each use, and detects any tampering that is made to the interlock system.

Additionally, while driving, the offender will be required to give a breath sample every 5-20 minutes. If the offender tests positive while driving, the car's horn will sound, and its high beam lights will flash on and off. Any tampering with the interlock system by the offender (Class I misdemeanor) will cause the offender to be sent back to court as non-compliant. The offender can be jailed for this tampering, as well as pay a heavy fine.
