The effectiveness of the ACT’s new alcohol interlock scheme is being negatively affected by high costs and mandatory delays,the state’s lawyers warn.

In the past 14 months, more than 80 drivers have had the mandatory devices fitted to their vehicles.

Last June, when the interlocks were introduced, the government accredited 3 providers to install the devices which would prevent drivers from starting their cars until they provide a clean breath test.
