Alcohol Countermeasure Systems announces five-year agreement with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to continue as an approved service provider to the Ontario Ignition Interlock Program.
Alcohol Countermeasure Systems, ACS, is pleased to announce that ALCOLOCK Canada, a division of ACS, has been selected by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to continue as an approved service provider to the Ontario Ignition Interlock Program.
As stated by Felix JE Comeau, President & CEO of Alcohol Countermeasure Systems, “We were the first supplier to the Ontario government with the inception of the Ignition Interlock Program in 2002 and remain the leader in program services. This contract award solidifies our unparalleled commitment to quality products and the delivery of exemplary interlock services to the people of Ontario. Thank you to the dedicated staff in our service delivery network throughout Ontario and to the many who recognize the value of ALCOLOCK customer service.”
Vehicles with an alcohol interlock device installed will not start unless the driver provides a breath sample below the preset limit. ALCOLOCK leading anti-circumvention technology also ensures that the breath sample is from a human subject and has not been altered in any way; the electrochemical sensor only responds to human breath samples and is not affected by environmental or biological vapours such as ketones, cigarette smoke or vehicle exhaust.
“Alcohol interlocks are an essential and highly effective tool for preventing impaired driving with Ignition Interlock Programs shown to be more effective than licence suspension alone” advises Mr. Comeau. “Studies show that over 50% of impaired driving offenders continue to drive even after losing their licence. As the only device that can physically prevent an offender from driving while impaired, the alcohol interlock is an essential tool for keeping impaired drivers off the roads.”
Alcohol Countermeasure Systems is an international group of companies with over 40 years experience developing innovative technology to prevent impaired driving. A technology leader and manufacturer of alcohol interlock devices and breath alcohol testers, ACS provides products and services to law enforcement, automotive, industrial, public and personal safety markets.
