Utah's Ignition Interlock Restricted Driver (IRD)

The ignition interlock device (IID) is a constant monitoring device which, when installed in a motor vehicle, prevents the motor vehicle from being started without first sampling the driver's breath alcohol concentration (BAC). If the driver's breath alcohol concentration (BAC) level is greater than a predetermined concentration level, the device prevents the motor vehicle from being started.

Under Utah Code Section 41-6a-518.2, the driver is required to install the ignition interlock system if ordered by the Court, Board of Pardons and Parole, or by Utah's statutory scheme. The driver must pay all costs related to the ignition interlock device and the records are maintained in an electronic database.
