BAIID Laws in Illinois
In Illinois, the following scenarios require the installation of an Ignition Interlock Device or Breath Alcohol Interlock Device:
- Anyone with two or more DUI convictions.
- Any first-time DUI offender who is issued a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP) during their statutory suspension.
Once the BAIID is installed, the Secretary of State's office reads and monitors the BAIID throughout the duration of its installation, and the BAIID alerts the Secretary of State's Office if the driver attempts to drive under the influence or tamper with the BAIID device.
The BAAID uses state-of-the-art technology to read a driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) before allowing the driver to start the vehicle. The device is installed in the ignition, and prevents the vehicle from being started if the driver's breath sample registers a BAC of .025% or more. The driver is required to provide an initial breath sample to start the vehicle and at random intervals throughout the trip.
