A BAIID (Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device) is a breathalyzer installed in your vehicle that tests your breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) before you start your vehicle. If your BrAC is above a certain level, you will not be able to start your vehicle.
As required by the Office of The Illinois Secretary of State, you will also have to submit a sample of your BrAC at random intervals while your vehicle is on, commonly referred to as a random retest. This random retest prevents you from operating your vehicle while intoxicated after you’ve already started your vehicle.
If you have been arrested for a DUI in the state of Illinois, you may be required to install a BAIID in your vehicle. Depending on your offense, you may need to install a BAIID in order to obtain a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP), a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP), or as a requirement from a court order. #BAIID,
