What is a BAIID?

Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID), is a breathalyzer that is installed in a vehicle and tests the breath alcohol concentration (BAC) before starting your vehicle. If the BAC registers above a certain level, you will not be able to start your vehicle. 

Any first-time DUI offender who wishes to drive during their Statutory Summary Suspension is required to have a BAIID installed on their vehicle. A person who gets a BAIID installed in their vehicle is responsible for all the costs associated with the BAIID. Including, issuance, installation, and monitoring of the BAIID.

Obtaining a BAIID

A DUI offender who is eligible to get a BAIID during their Statutory Summary Suspension must first obtain a Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP). After that, a BAIID can be installed on the vehicle through the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office. The MDDP and BAIID will allow the driver to travel anywhere and at any time as long as they are driving with the installed BAIID. The Illinois Secretary of State monitors the device.

For More Information On BAIID and MDDP visit the Office of the Illinois Secretary of State’s Website Here: https://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/BAIID/baiid.html
