    Default Ignition Interlock Devices

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: New Jersey

    My wife is an alcoholic and has made some very poor decisions with driving while under the influence. She has not been arrested or pulled over yet, but I fear it will happen at some point. I'm also very concerned for the safety of our children. I'm considering getting an ignition interlock device installed on her car. I understand that these are sometimes required when a driver gets a DUI; what I'm wondering is, can I do it proactively without the courts getting involved? Can I just call a manufacturer and order one and have it installed on my own? Or are these only installed as a result of a DUI.

    Thank you.

    Sure, you can get one installed. Most of these send results to somewhere ....

    If the manufacturer will let them be installed is another question .. I don't see the issue other than liability concerns ~ say you do install one, it fails, she drives & crashes --

    There is nothing to stop you from ordering and installing the device on your personal vehicle.

    Only the private companies who may have liability concerns.
