Ignition Interlock Device and Drunk Driving

The installation of an ignition interlock device is utilized for those convicted of drunk driving in the state of North Carolina. Repeat offenders, those who blow .15 or higher on their breathalyzer test, as well as some repeat offenders are required to install an ignition interlock device on their car if they want to qualify for a DWI hardship license. An ignition interlock device is similar to a breathalyzer in that it measures a driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC). In order to your car to start, you must blow into the device first. The car will not start if your BAC registers at .02% or higher. You will be required to blow into the device periodically as your drive as well. If at anytime your BAC measures over .02%, your car will turn off.

This above information was forward to us by Sheriff BJ Barnes and our Chief Deputy County Attorney, is also found on The North Carolina’s General Assembly’s website page

Under North Carolina state law, you must pay for the installation of the ignition interlock device, as well as its monthly maintenance fee of approximately $160.00.
