Whether you’re tooling around the university campus, running errands or visiting the State Capitol building, it’s important to use your best judgment wherever and whenever you drive in Madison. Other drivers on the road expect and depend on us to drive responsibly to ensure they will reach their destinations safely, especially when it comes to deciding when it’s safe to get behind the wheel.
Although we always want to use our best judgment when on the road, there are some situations in which we may not be able to do so, such as when we’ve been drinking. Without someone else present to help us make the best choices for our safety and the safety of others on the road, ignition interlock systems can be the difference between making the right decision and making the worst possible decision.
How Ignition Interlock Systems Save Lives
The use of ignition interlock systems — such as those sold and installed by Integrity Interlock at our convenient Madison location — help protect drivers from making the wrong choices. Whether they are installed as the result of a court order or voluntarily, these systems prevent drivers who are impaired by alcohol consumption from starting their vehicles and becoming a potential danger to themselves and other drivers.
Ignition interlock systems consist of a device similar to the breath analyzers used by law enforcement agencies to conduct field sobriety tests. Before a driver starts his or her car, he or she gives a breath sample. If the driver’s blood alcohol content is found to be above the legal limit, the ignition interlock system prevents the driver from starting the engine. This ensures that the driver does not drive while intoxicated — preventing accidents, saving lives and helping drivers avoid the legal trouble and higher insurance premiums that come with a DUI arrest.
These devices also require drivers to re-test themselves periodically after the engine has started, so they continue to remain under the legal limit while they are driving. The ignition interlock systems installed by Integrity Interlock in Madison are capable of providing accurate results even in extreme cold or heat, and they feature extensive anti-tampering measures. Every attempt to use the device is recorded in the device’s internal memory, which can be retrieved using special software.
