Ignition Interlock Device - IID

Program Highlights

Ignition Interlock is a device installed in a motor vehicle, which prevents the ignition from starting unless the driver blows a satisfactory breath sample into the device. If the alcohol concentration of the breath sample exceeds 0.05, the motor vehicle engine will not start.

Requirements:
Section 316.193, Florida Statutes, requires ignition interlock devices to be installed on the vehicles of persons convicted of DUI. The ignition interlock program affects anyone convicted of DUI after July 1, 2002 upon eligibility of reinstatement for driver license.

A person convicted of DUI who applies to the FL DHSMV for driver license reinstatement will be directed to an ignition interlock provider. The ignition interlock device must be installed on the vehicle prior to receiving a license.

Costs to the Defendant:
The average cost to the convicted person for installation of an ignition interlock device is $70.00 and for monthly monitoring and calibration is $65.00-$75.00

Purpose of Ignition Interlock Device (IID)

The Florida Safety Council will act on behalf of the DHSMV to insure uniformity and consistency of the implementation of the ignition interlock program throughout Orange, Osceola, Brevard, and Seminole Counties. Approved by the state of Florida. MAY BE COURT ORDERED.

Goal

Upon referral from DHSMV, the Florida Safety Council will discuss issues related to Ignition Interlock Device (IID) violations with the offender in order to prevent future violations. For second time referrals, the client must meet monthly with an evaluator to discuss IID results and an ongoing plan to prevent IID violations for the remainder of their IID requirement. For third time referrals, the client will be provided a list of treatment agencies to choose from.

Objectives

  • Ignition Interlock devices, when embedded in a comprehensive monitoring and service program, lead to a 40-95% reduction in the rate of DUI offenses of convicted DUI offenders.
  • Reducing the DUI rate is an important factor in public safety, as continued involvement with alcohol when ordered to install an IID in the vehicle is a strong predictor of future crash involvement.

Client Interaction

  • Upon violations, as defined in Section 15A-9.010, the convicted person must contact the DUI Program Provider (FSC) within twenty (20) days from the date of the DHSMV referral letter to schedule an appointment.
  • The DUI Program Provider (FSC) shall notify the DHSMV immediately when the convicted person contacts the DUI program, and schedules an appointment.
  • The DUI Program Provider (FSC) shall meet with the convicted person, and complete the Ignition Interlock Device Interview Report, HSMV Form 77036 to document the face-to-face interview.

Registration

Appointments are scheduled by enrolling at any of our Brevard, Orange, Osceola, or Seminole County locations.
