About Ignition Interlock Devices

Ignition interlock devices are installed in an automobile or other motor vehicle to prevent the vehicle from being started when the driver has an unacceptable amount of alcohol in their system.  Many states across the country require the use of an ignition interlock device after someone is convicted of 'Driving Under the Influence – DUI' or a similar offense.  The use of an interlock device is now mandated in some fashion for first-time offenders in 23 states, up from six states just five years ago.  There are numerous widely regarded studies that have concluded that ignition interlock devices have a significant impact in reducing repeat DUI offenses.  Supporters of ignition interlock devices include MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving.  At present, it is estimated there are approximately 275,000 ignition interlock devices installed in vehicles in the United States.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal.
