Critical overview of alcohol ignition interlock programs in Australia

In Australia, interlocks were initially viewed with considerable enthusiasm by the relevant experts and national standards were established for both the device and the model for implementation. The Australian standard was revised in 1993 and there are now several manufacturers producing interlocks that meet that standard. For a variety of reasons the standards did not simplify or facilitate the development of research into interlock programs in an Australian legal setting so that it wasn't until the Queensland trial commenced in 2001 that court-based implementation was introduced.
