Nevada motorists convicted of DUI who want to reinstate their driving privileges must now, in most cases, install an ignition interlock device on any vehicle they operate, under a law that took effect this month.
The Breathalyzer-type device measures blood-alcohol levels and won’t allow the vehicle to start if the reading is over the legal limit to drive.
The device is equipped with a camera to make sure the convicted motorist is actually the one blowing into the mouthpiece, officials said.
