A number of States are considering the introduction of an alcohol ignition interlock program - entailing the fitting of a device to a vehicle to prevent an alcohol-affected driver from starting it. Within this ambit, Austroads established a team to develop guidelines which would result in the formulation of a nationally uniform program to complement existing rehabilitative programs for drink drivers, to ensure that: equipment is available and costs are minimal; administrative conditions are harmonised; jurisdiction applies when drivers visit other states. The guidelines detail all aspects of the program including technical specifications, participants, program organisation, servicing/calibration, monitoring/evaluation and cost.
