Since 2009, Smart Start Australia has partnered with a network of professional automotive technicians to provide alcohol interlock installation and service to offender, commercial and voluntary markets across Australia.
An alcohol interlock is an electronic breath test device connected to a vehicle’s ignition that requires the driver to blow a non-alcoholic breath sample into the device allowing the vehicle to start.
The primary goal of the interlock program is to reduce the road safety risk posed by drunk drivers to themselves and other road users.
Interlocks can be installed on any type of vehicle including push button, key start, EV, hybrid, gasoline, heavy duty vehicles and motorcycles; Smart Start Australia says it has even installed one on a tractor.
Installation requires a certain level of knowledge with 12-volt electrical systems and the proper tools. All equipment to install and service the device, including vehicle specifications and wire color reference manuals, are provided as part of Smart Start Australia agent support, which includes on-site training with ongoing online technical support /by phone.
With several thousand alcohol interlocks installed at 130 service points in six states and one territory, Smart Start Australia says it prides itself on offering innovative, industry-leading products and services that have garnered industry recognition from customers. , monitoring authorities and partners.
Each service agent can install, repair and maintain the device with a focus on quality and consistency of service as the number one priority.
Smart Start Australia reports the following comments from agents: “We have doubled our turnover and moved to a bigger, brighter factory. In the winter when our workload slows down, we still have our flow of interlocking clients to keep things running” and “Installing and servicing interlocking clients is a fantastic way to educate trainees on basic cabling testing and the extraction of plastic panels”.
As well as keeping the roads safe, Smart Start Australia says that for some of its participants having a deadlock can be a life-changing experience and help with their rehabilitation. Comments from some participants include comments of gratitude associated with monetary savings, health benefits, and social benefits, all by reducing their alcohol consumption.
