Camera now part of ignition interlocks
January 28, 2013 · 9:13 AM
Alcohol ignition interlocks in Washington now have a feature designed to prevent others from performing breath tests for the driver – a camera that snaps a picture every time the machine is used, verifying that the driver is the person who took the test.
Interlocks are required on the vehicles of those who’ve been accused or convicted of impaired driving. The machine requires a legal breath sample from the driver before allowing a car to start.
