What is a Car Breathalyzer for Vehicle Ignition?

A breathalyzer for car ignition (also known as an ignition interlock device, IID, BAIID, car breathalyzer, or interlock system) is a device that attaches to the starter of your vehicle and requires you to submit breath samples in order to start your vehicle. The breath samples taken by the IID will measure your breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) and allow you to start your vehicle if your recorded BrAC is underneath a specific amount.

Depending on the state you are required to install your ignition interlock system in, the amount of BrAC that prevents your car breathalyzer from starting your vehicle will vary. For more information on what are the ignition interlock device requirements in your state, visit our state requirements page.

How much does a car breathalyzer cost?

The cost of your car breathalyzer will vary based on multiple factors, including the type of vehicle you install the IID device into and the length of time you are required to have it.
