PRELIMINARY REPORT ON RIVERLAND ALCOHOL IGNITION INTERLOCK TRIAL

A six month trial of breath alcohol ignition interlock devices concluded in September 1998 in the Riverland district of South Australia. Alcohol interlock devices were fitted to vehicles to measure a driver's breath alcohol concentration. A vehicle cannot be started when a driver's BAC exceeds a predetermined level. The Riverland Trial was designed to identify administrative and technical issues that need to be addressed before a full scale use of breath alcohol ignition interlocks could be considered. Volunteers and their families gave useful advice on the advantages of interlocks and also provided some ideas that need to be considered before large scale use is introduced.
