      Victory Auto Service & Glass partners with Intoxalock

      Find Intoxalock ignition interlock press release information and the latest in DUI state laws and legislation.

      MINNESOTA – Victory Auto Service & Glass has 3 of the 35 installation centers in Minnesota that helps drivers get back on the road safely as an Authorized Intoxalock® Service Center. The Intoxalock® device was developed by Iowa-based Consumer Safety Technology, Inc. (CST) and is the first driving safety device of its kind to offer advanced technology that enhances the performance standards of ignition interlock devices.

      As of July 1st, ignition interlock devices (IID) will be required in vehicles of Minnesota DWI offenders who want to regain their driving privileges. Until recently, drivers could request the installation of an IID, but starting July 1, 2011, IIDs will be mandatory for any first time offender with a blood-alcohol level of .16 or higher at the time of their offense, and all repeat DWI offenders who wish to drive.

      Victory Auto Service & Glass has been installing and servicing the Intoxalock® since early 2010 in Brooklyn Park, Fridley, and Ham Lake, Minnesota. Victory Auto Service & Glass is a 2010 BBB Integrity Award winning automotive service facility with three locations in the Twin Cities metro, specializing in automotive maintenance and repair needs for all vehicles, both domestic and import.

      “All of us at Victory Auto are pleased to partner with CST in working toward making our roads in Minnesota safer,” said Jeff Matt, Owner of Victory Auto Service & Glass. “The mandatory use of ignition interlocks in DUI offenders’ vehicles will save lives, no question. We are very proud to play a role in this dramatic change!”

      The Intoxalock® is a discreet, hand-held alcohol sensor that tests a driver’s breath to determine their breath alcohol content. The device will prohibit the vehicle from starting if the driver fails the test. The Intoxalock® is primarily used by people who are legally required to have an ignition interlock device in their vehicle because of a drunk-driving violation. However, more and more users are beginning to voluntarily install the device for safety preferences.

      “Intoxalock® is first and foremost a driving safety device and it has a range of benefits,” said Dave Arringdale, CEO of CST. “For example, a family might choose to use Intoxalock® to ensure the safety of a loved one who has a drinking problem. Large companies that have a fleet of vehicles on the road also use our equipment to ensure the safety of their employees and reduce liability risks.”

      Service Centers like Victory Auto Service & Glass are sought out in different areas of each state across the nation to help ensure that Intoxalock® customers receive premium customer service. Victory Auto Service & Glass also offers complete maintenance and repair services for all vehicle makes and models, both import and domestic. Locations like Victory Auto Service are able to offer customers full service to keep their vehicles running smoothly.

      Intoxalock® users lease the device from CST and CST’s support center puts users directly in touch with their local service center for installation. To use the Intoxalock®, a driver simply pushes a button, submits their breath sample, and waits for the LED screen to display their breath alcohol content reading. If the driver passes, they can start the car and head to their destination. If a driver doesn’t pass, they will be unable to start the car and will have to wait a period of time before submitting another breath test. Installation of the Intoxalock® takes about an hour. Intoxalock® does not affect the vehicle performance, and the device alerts a driver when it’s time to return to a service center for recalibration.

      In conjunction with researchers at Iowa State University, CST developed the Intoxalock® using alcoholspecific fuel cell technology. CST was the first company in the country to use this cutting-edge technology, which is now the ignition interlock industry standard. In 2010, CST added the option of advanced technology features to their Legacy device and now offers GPS functionality, imaging technology, real-time reporting, and instant event notifications.

      “Intoxalock® involves state-of-the-art technology and is the most accurate device on the market,” said Arringdale. “Our technology, reliability, and attention to customer service are what set us apart from every other interlock provider out there.”

      Jeff Matt founded Victory Auto Service & Glass in 1997, with a commitment to providing exceptional service to those in need of automotive repair and maintenance. He, himself, worked as an automotive technician before opening Victory Auto, and he dreamed of opening a shop where the customer always felt cared for, never felt taken advantage of, and always receive the highest quality service at the best price.

      After seeing several vehicles come through the shops with cracked, sandblasted or rock chipped windshields and knowing how unsafe this can be, they also began offering auto glass repair in February 2000. Victory Auto Service & Glass now repairs and replaces all types of auto glass throughout the entire Twin Cities metro area, working with all insurance companies and providing mobile service.

      In 2010, Victory Auto Service & Glass was chosen to receive a prestigious BBB Integrity Award. Additionally, their Fridley location became a 2011 AAA Top Shop. Victory Auto is also one of the only auto repair businesses in the Twin Cities metro to be Ask Patty Certified Female Friendly.
