Iowa’s 24/7 Sobriety Pilot Program Closes Loophole

A recent statutory change to Iowa’s 24/7 sobriety pilot program is expected to increase the usage of Temporary Restricted Licenses (TRL) and Ignition Interlock Devices through a novel approach to close a glaring loophole in the previous law.

Iowa’s new law took effect on July 1, 2020. However, it won’t officially be enforced in pilot program counties until the state’s Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.

How Does Iowa’s 24/7 Sobriety Pilot Program Work?

It all started in July 2019 with a pilot program in Woodbury County, Iowa that established a 24/7 sobriety testing requirement. The court could order clients who met certain criteria to be tested for alcohol or drugs via breathalyzer twice a day at the county sheriff’s office.

The 24/7 program is for first-time offenders:

  • With a blood alcohol content of greater than 0.15, or;
  • Who are involved in a personal injury or property damage accident.
  • Who refuse a test.

It also applies to any driver with a second or subsequent violation of the OWI law in Iowa.

Changes Enhance Safety, Encourage Accountability

From its beginning, the major goals of the 24/7 pilot program included:

  • Encouraging individual accountability and alcohol-free behaviors.
  • Reducing recidivism by enforcing strict restrictions and rigorous testing.
  • Reducing pressure on the jails in Woodbury County. They often hold anywhere between 25 and 35 alcohol-related offenders on any given day.

Attorney Doug Struyk is a lobbyist for Intoximeters, Inc. The company provides alcohol breath testing devices for law enforcement and other agencies.

“In the partnership with Smart Start and Intoximeters, we believe in 24/7 and the sobriety that comes with it,” he said. “We see the benefit of proven, long-term impacts on recidivism rates through participation in the program, combined with the reduction in alcohol-related accidents and arrests with the use of Ignition Interlock.”

A Catch-22 for the Courts

In the original program, 24/7 would be ordered by the court as a condition of sentencing or probation. In order to take part in 24/7, however, the participant had to obtain a Temporary Restricted License (TRL) and an Ignition Interlock Device (IID), among other requirements.

However, Struyk said, the pilot program had a rather large loophole. By law, the judges weren’t allowed to require participants to get a TRL – or an IID – even though they were a prerequisite for the 24/7 program.

In other words, a participant needed a TRL and IID to take part in Iowa’s 24/7 sobriety pilot program as ordered. But the courts couldn’t compel them to get a restricted license. That meant that judges would eventually have to rescind the 24/7 order.

“Offenders could simply say, ‘I don’t want to get my TRL because I don’t want to do 24/7’,” Struyk said. “What we saw was a reduction in use of Ignition Interlocks by two-thirds. That was obviously the opposite of what we wanted to happen.”

So, many offenders simply chose to continue driving with a suspended license, with no Ignition Interlock and no 24/7 program requirement.

“It’s been called a ‘get out of jail free’ card,” Struyk said. “You get put on the 24/7 program, but you don’t have to get a restricted license or an IID. And if you don’t get those, then you never have to participate in the 24/7 program.

“It was a Catch-22 for the judges,” he added. “They couldn’t compel the offenders to do anything. So, we needed to fix that.”

Closing the Loophole

Getting rid of the loophole is all about saving lives, Struyk said.

A temporary license and IID are still not required in order to begin the Iowa 24/7 sobriety pilot program. However, an offender now has to prove that they have an IID on their vehicle in order to complete the 24/7 program.

The court can still order them to participate in Iowa’s 24/7 sobriety pilot program. But now they can’t be released from their 24/7 program requirement until they show proof of a TRL.

So instead of constantly having to figure out how to get to the sheriff’s office twice a day, it’s easier just to get the temporary license and IID.

“The judge can say you have to show up twice a day at the sheriff’s office and blow,” Struyk said. “If you don’t get a TRL to drive yourself, you’ll have to figure out an alternate way to get there. If you’re foolish enough to drive to the sheriff’s office or anywhere else in your vehicle, you’re driving without a license.”

The pilot project will continue in Woodbury County, which includes Sioux City and other municipalities. Other counties will have the option to participate in Iowa’s 24/7 sobriety pilot program.

How Long Do I Need an Ignition Interlock Device?

It’s important that anyone who has been drinking should avoid driving. But if you have been convicted of a DUI and have to install Ignition Interlock, there’s probably one major question on your mind: “How Long Do I Need an Ignition Interlock Device installed?”

That’s largely up to state and local laws, as well as other factors. But no matter where you live, we’ve got a location near you for quick and easy Ignition Interlock installation. As the leading Ignition Interlock provider for more than 27 years, you can trust us for the lowdown on state Ignition Interlock requirements wherever you live.

We’re the Experts in State Regulations

All 50 states have laws on the books regarding the use of Ignition Interlock Devices. Studies have shown that Ignition Interlock Devices make the roads safer by preventing a vehicle from starting if there is an unlawful amount of alcohol on a driver’s breath.

There are a number of factors that go in to deciding how long you will have to keep your Ignition Interlock Device. But they vary greatly state-by-state, so it’s important to clearly understand the laws and requirements from the beginning of your monitoring.

Basic Ignition Interlock FAQs

DUI Frequency is a Major Consideration

The length of time you have to keep your Ignition Interlock Device is typically correlated with the number of DUI convictions you have received. Some states  become progressively harsh with Ignition Interlock Device requirements after the first offense.

Regardless of which penalties apply, it’s important for Ignition Interlock users to stay current with device calibrations and all other requirements. In most states, missing these appointments can result in your Ignition Interlock Device not working properly, making you subject to additional penalties.

Stay on Top of Your Testing

Alcohol Levels Also Make a Difference

In virtually every state, the legal limit for DUI is blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher. However, there are a number of exceptions. For example:

  • In Utah, the legal BAC limit is .05.
  • Commercial drivers typically have a limit of .04.
  • For drivers under 21, the levels range from zero tolerance to .08.

Higher BAC levels typically require harsher penalties. Some states have established the threshold for felony DUI as any level higher than 0.15. This often has a great impact on the required length of Ignition Interlock Device usage. Felony DUI often involves longer use.

Misdemeanor DUI vs. Felony DUI

Judicial Discretion and Other Factors

In many jurisdictions (unless there are mandatory minimums), judges or legal authorities often have a great deal of discretion regarding DUI penalties. This can include fines, classes, rehabilitation programs, community service and (of course) the use of Ignition Interlock Devices.

Judges will often consider:

  • Previous DUI convictions or other criminal history.
  • Impact on any victims, such as death or injury.
  • Other extraneous factors, such as whether children are present in the vehicle.

Another potential pitfall is not adhering to the terms of your probation or monitoring. Violations can sometimes result in an extended requirement for Ignition Interlock.

COVID-19 Highway Safety Panelists Offer Insight

COVID-19 has affected virtually every aspect of everyday life, and the highway safety community is no exception. A roundtable of highway safety officials recently shared their thoughts and findings about COVID-19 highway safety during the first webinar in the Governors Highway Safety Association’s 2020 webinar series. The webinars revolve around the theme of “Forging a New and Safer Normal.”

Smart Start was the exclusive sponsor for “Quarantined! Managing Highway Safety Programs During a Public Health Emergency.” Experts included officials from the Texas Department of Transportation; Delaware Office of Highway Safety; Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration; National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); and the Idaho State Police. The panelists all shared their recent experiences with COVID-19 traffic safety.

Smart Start CEO Matt Strausz and Vice President of Government Affairs Debra Coffey shared a brief presentation with webinar attendees, outlining the company’s response to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Their presentation stressed the importance of quick reaction and effective communication.

Quick Reaction is Crucial

Although the effect of COVID-19 is unprecedented, Smart Start has developed effective response strategies through experience with natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, or flooding.

“That kind of experience is valuable during a crisis,” Strausz said. “We know that our top priorities are to establish a response plan, and communicate that clearly to our customers and partners in every way possible.”

Even now, he added, Smart Start continues to monitor events surrounding COVID-19, staying ready to adjust strategy as the situation changes.

COVID-19 Highway Safety: A Rapidly Evolving Situation

The webinar panelists all agreed that COVID-19 highway safety presented challenges that immediately affected virtually every aspect of their daily operations.

“It’s really hard to believe how quickly so much of our lives and plans changed,” said Terry Pence, Traffic Safety Director at the Texas Department of Transportation. “There’s no question that it shocked the highway safety community in the same way it impacted so many other parts of life.”

Barbara Sauers of NHTSA agreed. “The pandemic has left very little untouched,” she said. “I really have been amazed to see how agile and responsive the highway safety community has been.”

Virtual Participation Plays a Major Role

Kimberly Chesser, Director of the Delaware Office of Highway Safety, echoed the thoughts of all the panelists by saying that technology played a critical role from Day 1. It was more than just mandating or allowing employees to work from home. The agencies quickly turned to virtual video-based solutions for a wide range of business requirements, including meetings, workshops, training, planning, and monitoring.

Pence added: “We’ve so many positive things as a result of moving so many things to a virtual environment. We found that a lot of folks are interested in opportunities to be involved in events that don’t require them to travel.”

As an example, he used a recent statewide traffic safety conference in Texas. He said the event typically draws between 275 to 325 participants in person. By switching to virtual attendance, there was a record participation of 536 participants.

The panelists generally agreed that virtual technology will continue to play a role even as the pandemic response eventually subsides. “It’s going to be a work in progress,” Kerns said.

The Importance of Staying Connected

Chesser noted that it was important to stay in close contact not only with stakeholders, but also with employees.

“We learned over time that it’s not just communicating one message with one staff member that affects them directly, but letting everyone know what the impacts are on everyone in the organization,” she said. “Keeping those lines of communication open over time, we realized it’s important to share all of that information.”

Tim Kerns is Director of the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration Highway Safety Office, as well as an epidemiologist. He noted that staff concerns often went beyond just performing their duties, but also included overall anxiety about COVID-19.

He agreed that effective response underscores the need not just for increased communication, but for active leadership.

“We felt like we had done a pretty good job at communicating,” he said. “But we started hearing from our employees as they returned that they had felt isolated. It’s important to have a positive message from the leadership team, and let our people know that the situation will pass.”

What Does the Future Hold?

There was also a strong level of agreement among panelists that it’s no longer possible to ignore the possibility of a far-reaching event like a pandemic.

Col. Kedrick Willis, Director of the Idaho State Police, said that while their existing crisis planning was robust, “a pandemic was not on our radar. In the future, it certainly will be.”

Kerns spoke about a broad-based approach to the future using lessons learned so far from COVID-19 highway safety.

“Hopefully, we’ll never have to do this again,” he said. “But this may be something we have to hang on to for a while. While we’re adapting to the short term, I have a feeling that this is going to drag on for a little while longer, at least. We’ll have to change some of the ways that we do business. We’ll have to adapt to that as we move forward as well.”

Important Changes to Ignition Interlock Laws in 2019

Last year is now in the rear-view mirror. Here are some legislative highlights from 2019 with meaningful changes to Ignition Interlock laws in several states.

Many thanks to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) for the valuable information about changes to Ignition Interlock laws. They’re a powerful voice in the efforts to save lives through drunk-driving legislation and awareness.

Here’s a quick overview of changes to Ignition Interlock laws last year.

How Does an Ignition Interlock Device Help with a DUI?

Ignition Interlock for All Offenders

New Jersey and Kentucky both passed all-offender changes to Ignition Interlock laws. The changes placed a strong emphasis on allowing first-time DUI offenders to maintain their driving privileges. The changes to DUI laws allow them to continue their everyday responsibilities without compromising highway safety.

New Jersey began requiring an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for every drunk-driving offender. The change to the DUI law, which took effect on Dec. 1, 2019, drew heavy bipartisan support. Proponents said the law allows first-time offenders to continue performing important duties while still driving safely with an Ignition Interlock Device. That includes driving to work or transporting family members.

Kentucky’s new DUI law starts on July 1, 2020. It will allow first-time offenders to retain their driving privileges by installing an Ignition Interlock Device for at least six months. That’s a powerful incentive, since that also allows the user to continue driving to work, fulfilling family duties, and so on.

Refusal to install the device will mean a nine-month driver’s license suspension. Repeat offenders, as well as first-time offenders with a blood alcohol concentration of over 0.15, will still be required to install an IID.

Ignition Interlock Incentive Laws

Idaho, Oklahoma and Texas passed changes to DUI laws that incentivize first-time offenders to use an Ignition Interlock Device. They require an IID as part of any plea agreement.

According to MADD, goals in 2020 include:

  • Passing all-offender changes to Ignition Interlock laws in California, Massachusetts, Michigan, South Carolina and Wisconsin.
  • Also passing Ignition Interlock incentive laws in Maryland, Ohio and Wisconsin.
  • Improving Ignition Interlock incentive laws in Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The list of achievements is impressive, but there’s always more work to be done. That’s why we’re grateful for everyone who fights for meaningful changes to drunk driving laws at every level of government.

New Jersey Expands Ignition Interlock Requirement

Beginning Dec. 1, New Jersey will become the 34th state to require Ignition Interlock Devices for every drunk-driving offender. That includes first-time DUIs.

There’s no debate about the effectiveness of Ignition Interlock Devices as a way of keeping drivers safer on the road. Dozens of studies by groups like the National Institutes of Health to Johns Hopkins University confirm it. Ignition Interlock unquestionably has a positive effect on alcohol-involved crashes and fatalities.

Heavy Support for New Jersey Ignition Interlock Requirement

The New Jersey law drew heavy bipartisan support and was overwhelmingly passed last summer in the state legislature. Sen. Nicholas Scutari was one of the bill’s sponsors, along with Assemblywoman Joann Downey.

“There’s strong evidence that Interlock Devices go a long way in reducing re-arrest rates when they’re installed in offenders’ vehicles,” Downey said. “By requiring more drivers arrested for DUIs to install Interlocks in their cars, we could see a substantial reduction in alcohol-related crashes.”

Believing in the Effectiveness of Ignition Interlock

Downey said the New Jersey Ignition Interlock requirement will reduce the amount of time that a first-time offender loses their driver’s license while Ignition Interlock decreases the likelihood of a repeat offense.

“Traditionally, intoxicated drivers have also had to forfeit their driver’s license while penalized. That can keep them from getting to work or performing their duties,” Downey said. “If that leads to the individual being fired, it’s not uncommon to see emotional consequences like depression. That can encourage even more of the substance abuse that led to the penalty in the first place.

“This law creates a more humane solution that’s also more effective in the long run, making New Jersey roads safer for everyone.”

Scutari, who is a longtime proponent of the law, said it solves a major problem while striking a suitable balance.

“Drunk driving is a serious issue in New Jersey,” he said. “Having prosecuted for 16 years, my experience is that the use of Ignition Interlocks is the best way to safeguard our roads but allow minor offenders to continue their employment.”

MADD Continues Pushing for Strong Ignition Interlock Laws

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was a heavy supporter of a New Jersey Ignition Interlock requirement. According to a MADD press release, studies show that states with all-offender Interlock laws can reduce repeat offenses by 67 percent. Also, they can reduce drunk driving deaths by 16 percent.

Steven Benvenisti, an attorney in Teaneck, N.J., was nearly killed by a drunk driver as a college student in 1989. Benvenisti has served as a MADD national board member, and is a longtime MADD volunteer. He has worked for years to pass an all-offender Interlock law in New Jersey.

“I know the anguish this violent, preventable crime inflicts on survivors and family members,” Benvenisti said. “In 2018, Ignition Interlocks kept 13,500 drunk drivers off our roads. Now this lifesaving technology will be used to its fullest potential.”

Video Shows Value of Smart Start’s Ignition Interlock Program

When you need answers about Ignition Interlock, there’s nobody better to ask than a Smart Start Business Development Representative (BDR). With expertise that comes from more than seven years in the business, Kathy Riley does a marvelous job representing Smart Start’s Ignition Interlock Program in an informational video.

Working in her region of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, she recently joined forces with attorney Robert J. Schefter of York, Pa. to create a valuable 30-minute video. It includes specific tips and pointers for what to do after getting a DUI in Pennsylvania, as well as things that set Smart Start’s Ignition Interlock Program apart from the competition. Here are some highlights.

A Fan of Smart Start’s Ignition Interlock Program

During the video, it’s clear that Schefter is a Smart Start believer. That’s not just because of Riley’s skill and expertise, but also because of Smart Start’s reputation. He is quick to point out that many of his clients have had difficult experiences with other interlock companies.

“It’s so important to have a vendor that is reliable, and that you can trust,” Schefter says in the video. “Based on my experience, I recommend Smart Start to my clients because I know Kathleen is an expert. Whether it’s Kathleen or someone else from her company, Smart Start is an expert and is trustworthy, especially in our area.”

What makes Smart Start better?

Expertise Plays an Important Role

Expertise has always been a huge factor in the success of Smart Start’s Ignition Interlock Program. While Schefter’s valuable insight about DUI laws is specific to Pennsylvania, he points out that Ignition Interlock requirements vary widely between states and jurisdictions.

Smart Start has the latest information about all of our locations, but Schefter notes that our knowledge about laws and requirements in Pennsylvania is particularly useful. The information about Ignition Interlock requirements isn’t always crystal clear, he added.

“Even for attorneys and people who do this every day, there are still gray areas and questions that can be difficult to answer,” Schefter said. “That’s why I work with Kathleen. She knows all the updates, and she keeps me updated as well. That’s why it’s so important to have a good lawyer and a good Ignition Interlock vendor to help you through the process.”

Deceptive Sales Practices Create an Industry Challenge

Schefter points out a problem that has surfaced in Pennsylvania and a number of other states. Many Ignition Interlock Programs will try to send DUI offenders information that looks official – in this case, like it came officially from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

“I’ve had clients who call and tell me that they got a letter that looks very official, like it’s from PennDOT, telling them that they have to get Ignition Interlock right away,” Schefter said. “It looks like an official letter but it’s not. It’s a letter from a vendor – not Smart Start – that looks like an official notice.”

In Pennsylvania and many other jurisdictions, he said, “You need to understand that you’re going to get an official letter that’s going to notify you about your suspension. It will have a specific effective date, and all the information about your suspension.”

After that initial communication, he said, any other letter that looks like it’s official is going to be an advertisement. “It’s misleading because it looks like it’s from PennDOT, and it gives you the wrong information about your Ignition Interlock,” he said. “In my mind, this is false advertising.”

“You’re not going to get that kind of misleading advertisement from Smart Start,” he added. “They’re not going to send out false information.”

Locations in Pennsylvania – and everywhere

Be an Informed Consumer

Riley says that potential Ignition Interlock clients can do themselves a big service by doing their homework before getting a device installed. It isn’t just about equipment, she added, but about the company that’s providing the service.

Partners like Robert Schefter trust our expertise, integrity and transparency. Our clients count on convenience, superior service, easy-to-understand pricing with no “gotcha” charges, and 24/7/365 multilingual customer care. That’s exactly what sets Smart Start apart.

Attorney’s Video Praises Smart Start Ignition Interlock in Georgia

We’re always pleased when attorneys, judges and other influencers clearly understand the value of Ignition Interlock Devices. They’re the best way to help drivers get back on the road safely after a DUI. As a result, Ben Sessions of the Sessions Law Firm in Georgia took some time recently to provide an attorney’s point of view through a short YouTube video. He makes some great points about the benefits of Smart Start Ignition Interlock in Georgia for his clients.

A Solution for Refusal Suspensions

Sessions’ firm practices in Atlanta, Macon, Columbus and other cities throughout Georgia. Starting a couple of years ago, the state legislature changed the license administration process to allow Ignition Interlock in Georgia as a way of dealing with a refusal suspension.

That really didn’t change the rules in instances when a client submitted to testing, he said. However, he said, “in those cases where a client refused a blood, breath or urine test, you absolutely have this option if you can meet certain preconditions.”

What makes Smart Start different?

Timely Installation for Ignition Interlock in Georgia

Sessions says that one major issue has been finding a product that can be installed in a timely manner for his firm’s clients. Then they have to get to the department of driver services so they can get their limited permit. That all has to be done within 30 days of the date of arrest, he added.

“That’s a pretty tight timeline when it came down to installing Ignition Interlock for a lot of clients,” he says. “Smart Start solved that problem for me.”

He notes three major reasons why Smart Start Ignition Interlock in Georgia works well for his clients:

  • Exceptional representatives who are easy for his clients to work with.
  • Quick installation of Ignition Interlock Devices, even on cars that can be difficult.
  • Peace of mind that comes from dealing with an industry leader.

Ask about same-day installation

Peace of Mind Makes All the Difference

For Sessions, the latter point is no small matter.

“It’s something that really alleviated a lot of pressure from our practice, because otherwise I was out there trying to track down a client to make sure they were getting the device, and getting the permit timely,” he said. “I don’t have to worry about it anymore.”

Check Ignition Interlock Laws in Your Jurisdiction

Remember that laws for Ignition Interlock in Georgia may differ from other states or jurisdictions. But one thing never changes: Smart Start is the leader for Ignition Interlock and other alcohol monitoring solutions.

“I know that (our clients are) in good hands with professional people, doing a great installation that will leave the client walking away knowing that ‘Hey, my lawyer gave me a good referral to a great service that did what they were supposed to’,” Sessions said.
