What is this new DUI ignition interlock thing?

Our new DUI law in Mississippi allows most people to use an ignition interlock device for a period of time instead of losing their license to drive. What does that mean, exactly, and how do they work?

Intoxalock is one of the more popular manufacturers of ignition interlock devices, and they have two models that have been approved for use in Mississippi. If you wind up having to install an ignition interlock device as a result of a DUI charge in Mississippi, it will either be an Intoxalock device or one very similar to it.

You can see what they look like and how they operate at Intoxalock’s website.
