  • Description:
    Ignition interlocks reduce repeat offenses for driving while intoxicated (DWI) by about 70% while they are installed. All states have implemented ignition interlock programs to manage interlock issues and monitor offenders who are required or eligible to install them. Despite these laws and programs, only about one-fifth of those arrested for DWI have interlocks installed.

    This publication is based on an evaluation conducted in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). The evaluation looked at key features of interlock programs and use of interlocks in 28 states from 2006–2011. Each state’s key features (Program Keys) were rated and correlation analysis was used to determine which keys were related to higher interlock use.
