Abstract:     
The concept of installing alcohol ignition interlock devices (AIIDs) as standard equipment in all cars to prevent anyone from drunk driving is polarizing. For years, scholars, scientists, policymakers, and public advocacy groups have been exploring and debating whether alcohol ignition interlock devices (AIIDs) would effectively prevent someone from driving drunk. Indeed, technology supporting AIIDs has steadily improved. Progress toward a consensus that identifies and ranks the potential goals that can be achieved with the AIID technology is slowly crystallizing. AIIDs have found their way into legislation, both nationally and internationally, particularly legislation aimed at repeat offenders. And, installing AIIDs as standard equipment on vehicles has, indeed, been envisioned as the ultimate solution. This article discusses the aforementioned debate and whether AIIDs can be seen as a permanent fix to the drunk driving dilemma.
