The pilot program requires all people convicted of a DUI in Sacramento, Alameda, Los Angeles and Tulare Counties to have a breath testing device installed in their cars. First offenders have to have it for at least five months, and second offenders have to have it for a year.

The car will not start if there is alcohol on the driver's breath.

These devices have been around for a while, but were rarely required in first offense DUI convictions.
