Outlining the Facts About Ignition Interlock Systems
Colorado has implemented harsh DUI penalties to deter second and third offenses. Repeat offenders and motorists with a blood alcohol content of .17 or higher are required to install a Breathalyzer-type system on their vehicles, known as an ignition device. The small device is installed at the end of the license suspension period to detect the level of a motorist’s blood alcohol content.
A car will not start until the motorist blows into the device. If the blood alcohol content is too high, the car will simply not start. Drivers are also prompted to blow into the device at random times when driving. This prevents intoxicated motorists from driving after sober passengers blow into the interlock device.

The costs associated with interlock devices are more than just driving inconveniences. Individuals are required to install the device on every car registered to them and cover the installation fees for each car. Drivers must also cover the costs of monitoring the devices, which costs about $75 per month. This can add up to more than $1,000 for drivers required to install the device for two to five years.
