Oregon DMV Ignition Interlock Camera Law
Beginning January 1, 2015 all ignition interlock devices that were installed in Oregon must operate on electro-chemical fuel sensor technology. Previously, the ignition interlock devices were based on semi-conductor technology. While the electro-chemical fuel sensor technology is more expensive, it is more reliable and gives fewer false-positives than that of the older technology.
More recently another requirement took effect. After June 1, 2015 all ignition interlock devices that are installed in Oregon must have a camera. These cameras take a photo each time the ignition interlock device is used. These pictures are used to help identify who blew into the device when and if a failed test result is posted to the ignition interlock device.
To comply with this new law, Smart Start of Oregon offers the SSI G4 Camera. The SSI G4 Camera is an add-on accessory for the SSI 20/20 and SSI 20/30 ignition interlock devices. This addition is mounted to the driver’s side of the windshield, which allows for individual adjustment for each installation.
