Missouri’s Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock
Device (BAIID) Program
In 1996, the Missouri Legislature passed an Ignition Interlock law, PDF 577-600 through 577-614 RSMo requiring second time intoxication-related traffic offenders to install and maintain a state approved ignition interlock device (IID) in their vehicles. 577-608 RSMo directs the Highway Safety Division – MoDOT to certify devices, adopt guidelines, standards and approval of ignition interlock devices. In 2009, the Highway Safety Division – MoDOT contracted with the Missouri Safety Center at the University of Central Missouri to carry out the monitoring component of the State’s ignition interlock program, specifically, inspection of the installation sites throughout the state. Currently Ignition Interlock Rules and Regulations are governed by Code of State Regulations Title 7 Division 60 Chapter 2.010 through 2.060. Click here for a PDF of the afore mentioned CSR.
Currently there are five approved IID manufactures and eight different IID devices approved for use in Missouri. At the present time there are 7000 to 8000 drivers required to install and maintain an IID on any vehicle that they operate. This number fluctuates from month to month because of divers being ordered by the courts or the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) to install the devises and complete the program. A list of certified manufactures and installers, by city, can be found on-line at http://www.modot.mo.gov/safety/IgnitionInterlock.htm. This list is updated monthly by MoDOT.
As noted earlier, oversight of the State’s Ignition Interlock program rests with the Highway Safety Division – MoDOT and Mrs. Jackie Rogers, Senior System Management Specialist, Jacqueline.Rogers@modot.mo.gov or 800-800-BELT. Mr. Donald DeBoard, with Missouri Safety Center, is the State Ignition Interlock Monitor responsible for monitoring the approved installers and reporting to MoDOT and DOR. If you have questions or concerns please contact Mr. DeBoard by email (email@example.com) or at (660) 543-8004.
