The Ignition Interlock Program encourages safe driving by preventing those involved in the program from driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol.
An ignition interlock device is an in-vehicle, alcohol breath screening device that is wired into the vehicle’s ignition. The device will prevent the vehicle from starting if alcohol is detected or will sound an alarm if the vehicle is in motion.
The device is installed and maintained by Smart Start Inc., and results are monitored by Driver Fitness.
Drivers convicted of an impaired driving related offence (alcohol or drugs), and drivers who fail or refuse an approved screening device, are required to participate in the program.
