Every vehicle in France has one and NZ should do it too I reckon.
Some repeat drink-drivers here, will be given the choice of paying for devices that stop their cars being driven if the gizmo senses alcohol on their breath.
For about $150 a month, the drivers will be able to have the "interlock" installed in return for a shorter period of disqualification.
The new option will begin on September 10, along with special "zero-alcohol" licences, which require drivers to be completely sober for three years.
NZ's 60 worst repeat drink-drivers, have more than 750 convictions between them, according to the Official Information Act show.
Repeat drink-drivers would still face three months' disqualification before they could use the interlock devices.
These would be installed for 12 months at least and drivers would have to have sober readings for at least six months, to get back onto normal licence conditions, or three months, if they did an alcohol treatment course.
The devices will allow for trace alcohol, such as in mouthwash, perfume or cologne, but will still effectively have a zero limit.
