This bill is an expansion of the current pilot program requiring the installation of Ignition Interlock Devices (IID) for DUI offenders in Los Angeles, Alameda, Tulare and Sacramento counties. State Senator Jerry Hill sponsored the bill to help reduce the amount of drunk driving accidents and associated fatalities that occur every year. California will join twenty-eight other states who already require the installation of IIDs for DUI offenders.

What Are the Specific Provisions Under This New Law?

  • First DUI Without Injury: Requires an IID for six months with complete driving privileges; or a restricted license for one year with no IID installation and participation in a court-mandated alcohol treatment program
  • First DUI With Injury: IID required for six months
  • Second DUI: Installation of an IID for one year
  • Third DUI: Installation of an IID for two years
  • Fourth and Any Subsequent DUIs: Installation of an IID for three years

What is an IID?

An Ignition Interlock Device (IID) requires the driver of a vehicle to blow into a device that checks their blood alcohol content prior to them being able to drive. If they blow and their BAC level is above the legal limit of .08 percent, they will not be able to start the vehicle. The IID is wired to the car's ignition and must be installed by an authorized installer. It costs anywhere from $100-$150 to install the device and $60-80 a month for the rental fee, all of which must be paid for by the DUI offender.
