Ignition interlock device

An ignition interlock device is an in-vehicle alcohol breath-sensing device that measures the breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) levels of the driver. The device prevents a vehicle from starting if it detects a BrAC over a pre-set limit. It is located inside the vehicle, near the driver's seat, and is connected to the engine's ignition system.
