Ignition Interlocks Will Soon Feature Cameras to Monitor Convicted Drunk Drivers
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Iowa is looking to make a change to the ignition interlock system used to monitor Iowans convicted of drunk driving. The Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau hopes that by July all new ignition interlocks will be required to have a built-in camera. “There is a possibility that someone other than the intended person is actually blowing into the device and starting it,” said GTSB Chief Patrick Hoye.
