Keeping Drunk Drivers Off the Petaluma Roads
Petaluma, CA has a lot going for it. It's situated in a beautiful area of California and it is populated with some really good people. As such, they understand the importance of keeping their residents safe and keeping drivers who have been drinking off the roads. That can be easier said than done, but it's not so hard if you install the interlock device into your auto. Once it is professionally installed, you won't need to fret over someone borrowing your car and driving under the influence of alcohol.
How the Ignition Interlock Device Works
When anyone wants to take your car out for a spin, the first thing they must do is blow into the tube of the interlock device. Shortly thereafter, the device will spit out results on the alcohol level of the potential driver. If the levels are low, there is no problem starting the engine and driving off. The only thing that will happen afterwards is that randomly, the device will alert the driver that another check will soon be due. Just in case there's alcohol in the car, the driver will need to repeat the test periodically. However, if the alcohol level is too high to drive, the person won't be able to turn on the engine.
Staying Away from DUI
It's such a pity for someone who is driving your car to be pulled over and charged with DUI. It could have all been avoided by professional installation of an interlock device in Petaluma. Along with the charge of DUI, the driver probably lost their driver's license. The good news is that the court is more lenient towards those who have an interlock device, so it can be easier to get it back.
Petaluma is located near Sonoma Mountain in Sonoma County, California. The Coast Miwok words peta luuma mean the backside of a hill, so is most likely how Petaluma got its name. After the Sonoma County Bank Building was built in the 1920s, the city gained a reputation for its chicken processing and grain milling industries. Even to this day, these industries are an important part of the Petaluma commerce. However, it used to be called the "Egg Capital of the World." That is why Petaluma (or P-Town) was also referred to as Chickaluma or the Egg Basket. Additionally, Lyman Byce invented the egg incubator in the town of Petaluma.
