Consumers can do so many thing with smartphone apps. Learn more about an app that gives DWI offenders information on ignition interlock devices and alcohol monitoring systems.
May 26, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Smartphone applications (or apps, for short) are helping people in almost every facet of life. Apps can help us with driving directions, find movie listings, scan coupons, check flight reservations, and even convert metrics when measuring ingredients. It comes as no surprise that there is a new app to help people convicted of drunk driving. In Arizona, drivers convicted of DWI must use ignition interlock systems for up to one year. With that, Smart Start, Inc. has developed a smartphone app that provides helpful information about its ignition interlock and IN-HOM alcohol monitoring systems.
In addition to product introductions and enrollment information, the app provides training videos for its interlock systems, as well as a BAC calculator that explains how a person's weight, gender and the number of drinks consumed could affect his or her blood alcohol content level. The Texas based company expects an increasing number of people to use ignition interlock devices as 17 states (including Arizona) now requirefirst-time DWI offenders to install such devices. It currently has more than 1000 service centers throughout the United States.
The app is free and can be downloaded from the ITunes App Store or the Android Market.
Smart Start President Jim Ballard believes that it is an important tool that will help offenders comply with court ordered mandates by providing easy access to enrollment and information about the company's alcohol monitoring devices. It recently launched a portable breath alcohol monitoring device that could be a viable alternative to transdermal monitoring or jail time.
If you have questions about ignition interlock device requirements or alcohol monitoring as part of a DWI sentence, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help.
