WASHINGTON – The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) recently released a best practices guide for motor vehicle administrators across the country on how to successfully implement an ignition interlock program and reduce impaired driving recidivism.

“We know that over 300,000 people drive drunk everyday in this country and roughly one-third of them are repeat offenders,” said David Kelly, Executive Director of the Coalition of Ignition Interlock Manufacturers. “This report by AAMVA is a valuable tool to help reduce repeat offenses by those already charged with drunk driving.  State legislators should also understand these best practices so they can provide appropriate resources that meet the needs of motor vehicle administrators in their states.”

CIIM board member and Vice President of Government Affairs Debra Coffey of Smart Start Inc. served AAMVA as an advisory board member on this project.

“We’re so pleased CIIM could be a voice on this important project and industry played a role in its development. Collaborative efforts like this only serve to keep our roads safer,” concluded Kelly.

AAMVA recently released a video of their best practices. You may also click below to download AAMVA’s best practice report.
