Cameras installed in Illinois breathalyzers

Posted: Updated:

Convicted drunk drivers in the state of Illinois will now have a tough time cheating the system. 

That's because the state's breathalyzer ignition device now includes a camera.

Chicago officials and Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD, unveiled the new breathalyzer device that also takes the driver's picture.

Before the use of the cameras, there was no way to really be sure the person blowing into the breathalyzer was actually the person that would be driving the vehicle.

The new device now erases that blind spot.
