Starting next month, New York will require anyone convicted of drunken driving to install a device in their cars that will determine whether they are sober before the vehicle will start. Those convicted of driving while intoxicated must have the ignition interlock breathalyzer device installed at their own expense, and data will be analyzed once a month to determine how often the driver exceeded blood alcohol limits. Nine other states require drivers convicted of alcohol-related offenses to use such devices.
