Smart Start Worldwide: Denmark Ignition Interlock Law Gets Tougher

driving on the road

Smart Start, the only approved vendor in Denmark, is about to supply more Ignition Interlocks to drinking and driving offenders. Denmark’s drunk driving law has changed to let individuals get back on the road sooner, but only with an Ignition Interlock in their vehicle.

The Changes in the Denmark Ignition Interlock Law

The updated Ignition Interlock law means that a person convicted of drinking and driving can now drive within their 3-year suspension period if they have an Ignition Interlock. They must also pass a driving test.

An Ignition Interlock Device is installed in vehicles and tests the amount of alcohol in someone’s system before the driver can start their car. The driver must provide a breath sample into the device before starting their vehicle. If there’s too much alcohol detected, their vehicle will not start.

For those who choose to use the Ignition Interlock, it means the freedom to drive again and get back to their everyday routine. At the same time, the device is keeping Denmark’s roadways safe from drunk drivers. In Denmark, the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit is .05.

Older Denmark Ignition Interlock Law

In 2015, there was a similar Ignition Interlock law that passed. This new, upcoming law is expected to be an even more effective program in the country.
