Shortly after 2000, PA changed it’s Drunk Driving laws to mandate the installation of an interlock device. Usually this is required only after the second DUI charge. These devices require a user to blow into it before the vehicle can start. In the event that alcohol is detected, the vehicle will not start.
Mobile Edge has been the area’s leading service center for the installation and monitoring of these devices. We work with a company called Consumer Safety Technology (CST). CST is a very well respected provider of interlock devices (sometimes called Breathalyzer devices).
When a client is required to have a device installed, they first need to call CST at 1-877-777-5020. They set up their equipment leasing with CST and then CST contacts us to set up the installation. We perform the initial install and train the client on the workings of the device. It is actually very easy to use.
After the initial install, the state requires that the information contained in the units be transmitted to them. I would guess that this information includes any failed attempts to start the vehicle due to alcohol being sensed. We do this at our facility by swapping out the unit with one sent to us by CST. At the same time, we are required to inspect the installation for any obvious signs of tampering.
At the end of the term, Mobile Edge removes the equipment and sends it back to CST.
The process is very simple and we make it as painless as possible. Our fees are reasonable, we are very discrete, and we are flexible with scheduling. We do not answer any questions pertaining to the law or anyones’ particular circumstances. We are not qualified to do so. We will, however guide you through the initial process and describe to you in more detail how our process works. If you are in the unfortunate need of an interlock device, please give us a call (610-377-2730) and we can point you in the right direction. (Only Carbon and surrounding county residents please!)
