Alcohol Detection System (ADS) / Ignition Interlock Device (IID)
We Install and Calibrate Alcohol Detection Systems
If you have been convicted of DUI in the state of California, then you need to have an ADS or IID installed in your vehicle before you can go back to driving. These devices are similar to a breathalyzer test and can estimate your blood alcohol level. Failing the test will keep the car from starting. This is for your benefit as it will significantly reduce the risk of a second offense, which can result in significantly larger fines, license suspension, or even jail time.
There are two companies that are approved by the state of California and the city of San Diego to sell these devices. They are:
Both companies recommend Soundiego as an installer in southern California. We also offer regular maintenance and calibration on these devices. Having your ADS or IID properly installed, maintained, and calibrated is vital because a false positive could keep you from being able to drive even when you are sober, and a false negative can result in driving under the influence by accident.
To avoid a false positive, the manufacturer of one such device recommends caution with:
- Cough medication
- Perfume or cologne
- Fermented foods such as hot, yeasty bread or ripened fruits
These items may leave trace amounts of alcohol on your breath or in the air around you and cause the device to think you are under the influence.
