The Ignition Interlock Device (IID) is essentially a breathalyzer attached to the ignition of a vehicle.  They are usually only required for alcohol related offenses.  The driver must blow into the device in order to start the vehicle.  The IID measures Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC).  The state may require a driver to maintain an IID for a designated period of time without violation in order to maintain a valid drivers license.  Some IID are equipped with camera and Global Positioning System (GPS) which allows monitoring of where the vehicle travels and who is blowing into it.  The ignition interlock device must be installed and maintained monthly by an authorized company.  Each monthly inspection verifies the device is working properly and transmits data to the state.  The IID can only be removed by the authorized installer after the designated time is met without violation.  The expense of installation and maintenance of the ignition interlock device falls on the driver.  Violations which require IID usually require the driver to carry SR22 or FR44 insurance.  The SR-22 and FR-44 are actually attachments to an auto insurance policy which require the insurance company to notify the state if the policy is cancelled or lapses.  Wessell Insurance Services specializes in filing sr22 and fr44. Helping thousands of drivers reinstate their drivers license for 16 years nationwide.  If you have any questions or wish to get a fast, free quote call us anytime at 866 663 7561
