How Does the Connecticut IID Program Work?
The IID takes the breath alcohol content of the driver before allowing
them to operate the vehicle. Even if you have a small amount of alcohol
in your system, such as .01, the zero tolerance device will not allow
the vehicle engine to start. It will not send a signal to law enforcement
that you have violated the conditions of the program. However, if you
manipulate the device and are caught driving with alcohol in your system,
you will face other charges and penalties. There are a group of vendors
across Connecticut who have been approved to install IIDs. Generally speaking,
the cost for installing the device is around $75 to $150, and $100 to
have it recalibrated each month.
