California Drunk Driving limited by new device after first offense.
Posted on Nov 04, 2009
Sacramento, California: Recently the Counties of Tulare and Sacramento implemented adopted the implementation of a pilot program forwarded by Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-Los Angeles. The law allows Counties to require installation of an ignition interlock device into first-time driving under the influence (DUI) offenders.
The added carrot signed into law as well, provides that if any first time DUI offender wants to get their license back, they may also voluntarily have the device installed. This is a great first step to stop multiple offenses of drunk driving that causes so much havoc on our roads.
The ignition interlock device is an instrument that tests a person’s blood alcohol concentration before the vehicle can be started.
