Who’s My Ignition Interlock Contact if I Live in a Hybrid State?

Smart Start Ignition Interlock Device (IID) the SSI-20/30

Every state has their own Ignition Interlock regulations to some degree. The Interlock programs in the U.S. can either be administrative, judicial or a mix of both, which is usually called a hybrid state.

The Ignition Interlock Hybrid State Program

Hybrid states’ Ignition Interlock programs combine both administrative and judicial authorities. This could mean different requirements in your program, which means proper coordination needs to be implemented among different state offices and courts.

If your state requires the use of your device as a prerequisite and condition of a modified driver’s license, that oversight is on the administrative side. If your judge then orders the installation of a device followed by a criminal proceeding, it’ll be judicial.  Either entity could require your Ignition Interlock.

Although this may seem worrisome with various authorities involved, hybrid Ignition Interlock states can combine the strengths of both administrative and judicial programs.
