Ignition Interlock in Maryland
The Ignition Interlock Program involves installing an Alcohol Breath-Analyzed Ignition Interlock Device in the participant’s vehicle’s ignition system. Once installed, the vehicle will not start if an unacceptable level of alcohol is detected in the driver’s breath after blowing into the device. The Interlock program can be made available either optionally or as a requirement by order of Maryland District Court, the Office of Administrative Hearings, the Medical Advisory Board, or the MVA’s Administrative Adjudication Division. Drivers in the program will have a restriction added to their license, which may be removed upon completion of the program. Once the restriction is removed, the interlock device may be removed.
