  • Description:
    In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NHTSA began collaborating on a project to evaluate ignition interlock programs in selected States. The purpose of the evaluation was to provide information and best practices to States for ignition interlock programs. The project was managed by the Governor’s Highway Safety Association and conducted by the Preusser Research Group. Research was conducted to determine the following:

    • How States can increase interlock use among DWI offenders who are required or eligible to install one.

    • Which changes in ignition interlock programs led to increases in ignition interlock use.

    • Identify the key features of ignition interlock programs.

    • Which key program features were related to higher ignition interlock use rates.

    This report provides the results from the first part of the project that had the following objectives: determine how States can increase interlock use among DWI offenders who are required or eligible to install one; determine which changes in ignition interlock programs led to increases in ignition interlock use; identify the key features of ignition interlock programs; determine which key program features were related to higher ignition interlock use rates.

    NHTSA would like to acknowledge the support and contributions of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Injury Center on the development and funding of this report through Interagency Agreement 10FED1011913. The partnership between NHTSA and CDC is critical to advancing the use of effective programs that can help safeguard the health Americans.
