What is the Draeger Interlock XT?

The Draeger Interlock XT is installed in automobiles to prevent driving while intoxicated. (DWI) BAIID devices measure a driver's BAC before allowing the engine to start. The automobile cannot be started if driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) is above preset limit as defined by Iowa Secretary of State. While operating the automobile, BAIID will prompt drivers to take random breath sample (rolling test) and stores the information for monitoring authorities.


I was greatly impressed by the customer service experience at Safe Start. I had the pleasure to work with Lissa who went above and beyond what I was expecting of her. Not only did she help answer all my questions (and I had a lot), she made sure I was fully aware and prepared for the process of gettting my IID removed. I got a strong sense that Lissa truly cares about her clients which I appreciated. I would highly recommend this company to anyone!


Hey Lissa,

Just wanted to give you a heads up that my license has been reinstated. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done to help me through this tough time. You have gone above and beyond the expectations someone in my situation probably deserves.

Your team over at has made this embarrassing experience that much easier as well. You all deserve to congratulate each other on a job well done. Your team treats me like a person, rather than a criminal, and I cannot thank you enough for making this bumpy road as smooth as possible.

Please let your team know that I appreciate all of their work and patience.

Thank you again
