The Draeger Interlock XT is the most reliable and affordable ignition interlock (BAIID) on today's market.

What is an Ignition Interlock?

The Draeger Interlock XT is an ignition interlock device installed in automobiles to 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, the BAIID will prompt the driver to take random breath test (rolling test) and stores the information for monitoring authorities.
