Examining the Feasibility of Alcohol Ignition Interlocks for Motorcycles
Impaired driving is a major factor in vehicle crashes and traffic fatalities. The use of alcohol ignition interlocks is growing as a countermeasure to combat the high rate of offender recidivism for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI); however, while there is an increase in interlock use on passenger vehicles to reduce DWI recidivism, there has been only limited use of these devices on motorcycles. Of the approximately 279,000 interlock devices
installed in the United States in 2012, estimates show that only 0.1 percent to 0.2 percent of that total were installed on motorcycles.
