Ignition Interlock Research Project.

Tenders are invited for Ignition Interlock Research Project

Overview :

While Colorados Ignition Interlock (IID) program is not PDD funded, it is in line with the activities and tasks of the PDD Committee in that it is an impaired driving intervention strategy intended to deter persistent drunk driving and protect public safety. The PDD committee has supported the States IID program because research shows that IIDs reduced recidivism and the IID is believed to bolster the effectiveness of other system-wide impaired driving interventions. The PDD Committee has previously supported Colorados IID program through the development and implementing the Ignition Interlock Enhancement Counseling program, a therapeutic companion to the IID intended to extend the efficacy (survival rate) of the device. The PDD Committee has chosen the Ignition Interlock Device to be one of the impaired driving interventions encouraged and supported by the PDD Fund where possible. In 1995, the Colorado legislature approved the implementation and evaluation of an Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (IID) pilot program (SB 95-011). The evaluation resulted in several changes to the authorizing law, including making the device mandatory for all motorists with two or more DUI/DWAI offenses within a five year period. There has been no additional research in Colorado to determine the programs effectiveness and efficacy in reducing impaired driving recidivism and improving public safety.etc.
