This book describes an effort to document alcohol ignition interlock programs in the United States in order to highlight those programs or program features that are believed to be best able to serve traffic safety interests. Information has been gathered into this book bearing on important interlock program features together with some recommendations for states to consider as programs are developed.

The general topics in the body of this book include program enrollment issues; interlock program ramp-up and expansion; standardization of reporting and information flow; program compliance, noncompliance and interlock removal; linkages to treatment; differences in court-based judicial programs and motor vehicle administered interlock programs; and suggested core elements of interlock programs. The authors believe that the single major difference among panelists interviewed centered on whether interlocks should play a role in the monitoring of court- ordered alcohol abstinence.
