Breath device, camera to be required in DUI offenders' cars
July 2, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White introduced an upgrade to the 'breath alcohol ignition interlock device', or BAIID, program Tuesday.
All first-time DUI offenders who want to drive during their suspension will be required to install a camera along with the BAIID into their cars.
"The in-car camera technology provides additional accountability and eliminates any doubt that the user of the BAIID is, in fact, the DUI driver," said White.
Drivers are already required to blow into the BAIID, which measures their breath alcohol content levels.
Their cars will not start if the device registers alcohol.
