Ignition Interlock Laws in the State of Alabama


In 2012, Alabama became the 50th state to enforce driving under the influence (DUI) legislation that includes the use of ignition interlock devices (IIDs). Alabama courts are required to order the installation and maintenance of IIDs for first-time offenders, if their blood alcohol levels are .15 percent or higher, they are involved in an injury type accident, a child under the age of 14 is in the vehicle or if they refuse to submit to a breath test. All repeat DUI offenders are required to install an approved interlock device on their vehicle. The offender is responsible for any and all costs associated with the IID, including installation, monthly lease payments, service fees and removal. Offenders must obtain IIDs from service providers that are certified by the State of Alabama.
