Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices

The laws relating to drink driving in Queensland require a person who has been convicted of a particular DUI offence, to drive only a motor vehicle that has fitted to it an alcohol ignition interlock device for a certain period of time (1 or 2 years) after the disqualification for the offence comes to an end.

The offences which trigger the imposition including driving while over the high limit of 0.15%, failing to provide a specimen, dangerous operation while aggravated by being affected by alcohol and some offences where even though less than 0.15%, they also have in the last 5 years a specified other offence.

The device prevents the vehicle from being started unless it is provided with a specimen of a person’s breath containing either no alcohol or under a particular level.  All drivers however must have a zero reading during the interlock period and they must only drive a nominated vehicle during that period of time.

The interlock device needs to be installed by a nominated provider and the costs appear to be around $2,000, which in itself, can be a significant punishment arising from the drink driving/DUI offence.

An exemption can be applied for based on locality, medical or severe hardship grounds. The scope for an exemption however are quite limited.
