Is there ever an instance where someone would voluntarily choose to have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle? Yes, as a matter of fact, there are several instances where one may voluntarily choose to have a device installed. They happen more often than you might think.
Parents of teen drivers make up a large percentage of those voluntarily installing ignition interlock devices. If their child were to make a poor choice, they want to protect them by ensuring they are unable to drive, potentially causing harm to themselves and others. Some insurance companies will offer lower rates to individuals who have an ignition interlock device installed in their child’s vehicles. Check with your insurance company to see if they offer this benefit.
Spouses of individuals who drink heavily make up another category of those who voluntarily install interlock devices.
A third category are people who want to self-monitor, just as a precaution. Perhaps they have had an issue with overindulging in the past and getting behind the wheel, or have had a court-ordered interlock device installed before and want to be as careful as possible to never find themselves in that situation again. Whatever the reason, it never hurts to be overly cautious when it comes to alcohol consumption and driving in any capacity.
