An Ignition interlock device (IID) is a mechanism similar to a breathalyzer which is installed in a vehicle’s dashboard. Before the vehicle can be started, the driver must breathe into the device. If the analyzed result is over a programmed blood alcohol concentration the vehicle will not start.

You probably want to generally make sure you only have one vehicle in your name.**
Although there is some confusion in the California Vehicle Code where it says: “To install on every vehicle the person owns or operates”**, both the police and DMV are usually requiring one (1) proof of installation to satisfy either’s requirement.
If needed, the IID company can help you make calls to DMV Mandatory Unit in Sacramento which sometimes gives conflicting information.
Minimum Installation: $25 for 95% of all cars some high end imports and push button start cars will usually cost more, case by case basis.
Monthly monitoring: $77
On the bright side, the ignition interlock device will probably guarantee you will not be at risk for another DUI with significantly increased penalties, or being charged with Penal Code Section 166 – Violation of Court Order not to drive with a measurable amount of alcohol and a Vehicle Code Section 23154 DMV mandatory 1 year suspension without any restriction option if you blow .01% or higher upon being stopped while on what is commonly referred to as “DUI probation.”
LifeSaver’s FC100 breath-tester/IID is generally not prone to giving false positive readings, and only responds to alcohol. However, the manufacturer indicates many substances do contain alcohol such as:
Foods such as ripened fruit or hot pizza dough/white bread.
These trace amounts of alcohol can give a positive reading even though you have not been drinking. Some of these are valid breath test defenses in a DUI case.
To alleviate the possibility of this happening, do not smoke, eat or drink anything, take oral medications, or use mouthwash at least 5 to 15 minutes prior to testing.
If you ever think you registered an alcohol reading because of a contaminant with trace amounts of alcohol, rinse your mouth with water and/or take a few deep breaths and then wait a few minutes before testing again.
Any traces of alcohol in your mouth will soon evaporate and disappear. It is important to continue testing and pass a test as soon as possible to prove you were not actually drinking alcohol, San Diego attorneys remind.
