PROGRAM AUTHORITY NHTSA may enter into an assistance agreement with a State or local agency, authority, association, institution, or person to carry out activities authorized 23 U.S.C. § 403. BACKGROUND Impaired driving is one of the most prevalent and preventable traffic safety and public health problems facing our nation. In 2018, 10,511 lives were lost due to alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for 29 percent of the overall traffic fatalities for the year. Over the past two decades, technology has advanced in the detection and monitoring of impaired drivers and is now an important complement to behavioral programs with breath alcohol ignition interlock devices playing a strategic role as a proven countermeasure to reduce recidivism by preventing drivers from operating their vehicle while impaired. All fifty (50) states and the District of Columbia have ignition interlock laws, thirty-two (32) of which have all-offender laws, incorporating ignition interlock devices into monitored, state regulated programs. The number of currently installed ignition interlock devices in the United States has increased from 101,000 in 2006 to more than 337,000 as of August 2016 and continues to grow. NHTSA continues to support states and regions to increase the use of ignition interlocks and provide guidance on state ignition interlock program administration.
