Samenvatting In 2002, 292 people were killed and 6,570 people were injured in 8,922 alcohol-related crashes. Alcohol-related crashes account for 6.9% of all crashes in the state, 40% of all motor vehicle fatalities, and 11% of all motor vehicle injuries. Public agencies are continually searching for new ways to deal with the frustrating problem of drunk driving. Although very little research exists on vehicle immobilization and seizure, communities to prevent drunk driving have used these tools on a very limited basis. In the late 1980s, Ignition Interlock Devices (IIDs) emerged as a high-tech solution to prevent repeat drunk driving. As a result, IIDs have become a popular sanction compared to other sanctions such as immobilization. In 1993, the Wisconsin Legislature passed Act 277, an omnibus drunk driving bill that allowed for the application of IIDs around the state. Ten years later, it was time to look critically at how IIDs and immobilization/seizure have been working. (Author/publisher)
