From The New York Times:

"Here are two compelling facts about ignition-interlock devices for preventing drunk driving. One is that these devices are highly effective, despite the logical possibilities for bypassing them. The second is that they are rarely installed in the cars of people who have been known to drive while intoxicated.”

The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility supports mandatory ignition interlock use for hardcore drunk drivers and for people who refuse to take a BAC test. For first-time, non-hardcore offenders, we support judicial discretion on a case by case basis regarding the decision to install an ignition interlock device.
