* PEI - Atlantic provinces buy 1,000 alcohol ignition locks
The governments of Canada’s four Atlantic Provinces have completed a joint procurement process for 1,000 alcohol-screening ignition-interlock devices to fight impaired driving on the region’s highways... The deal was announced May 2 under a five-year joint-procurement initiative between each province and Alcolock Canada of Toronto, the company providing the ignition devices... Atlantic Canadians install the alcohol-screening devices as part of driver licence reinstatement following a conviction for impaired driving. Once installed in a vehicle, these devices prevent it from being started and driven unless the driver can provide an alcohol-free breath sample free. The use of these devices is typically imposed by courts or voluntarily assumed by a driver as part of conditions following a suspension for an impaired driving conviction. The costs of installing and monitoring will be paid by the individuals involved...
