The date quoted for introduction of the alcohol interlock and zero alcohol disqualifications in the Waikato Times article (Automatic locks to stop drunks – June 18): was July 1 – this has now been delayed until later this year.

Alcohol interlock devices will be set with effectively a zero detection limit (not at the current legal limit), meaning it will prevent the vehicle starting if it detects any level of alcohol at all.

Alcohol interlocks are an initiative of the government's Safer Journeys road safety strategy and aim to reduce the harm of alcohol impaired driving on New Zealand roads.
