SB1150 ignition interlock device; regulation; installers

The following information provided in this overview of SB1150 ignition interlock device; regulation; installers is a brief summary of provisions and is not inclusive of all requirements.

The new provisions in Senate Bill 1150 require the Ignition Interlock Service Providers (IISP) to enter into a Contract/Agreement with the department for a term of at least three years.  The Ignition Interlock Service Providers must maintain at least one readily accessible service center in each county in this state.  Each service center must be adequately staffed and equipped to provide all ignition interlock device support services.   Provisions specify that the IID Service Provider must include a business implementation plan that outlines the steps and time frame necessary to become fully operational.  The IID Service Provider is required to comply with all county and municipal zoning regulations for commercial businesses and provide ADOT with a corresponding business license.  New requirements prohibit an ignition interlock service center from providing services for more than one IID Service Provider.  The Ignition Interlock Service Provider must clearly post all fees for installation, removal and inspection.  Requirements include that the Ignition Interlock Service Providers must collect a fee for each certified ignition interlock device that is installed by the providers.  The Ignition Interlock Service Provider shall remit collected fees to the department on a monthly basis. 

The certified ignition interlock device must meet or exceed National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards including the ability to wirelessly transmit and receive information, take a digital image and include the global positioning system location of the device at the time of a requested test (camera, GPS and real-time reporting).  The Ignition Interlock Service Providers are required to electronically transmit reports that include driver activity; bypass approval; compliance; client violations; unique identifying numbers for each device; and unique employee numbers identifying the person who installed or removed an ignition interlock device.
