DRUNKEN DRIVING-DEVICES
Ohio proposal would require ignition interlock devices for more drunken driving offenders

Reported by: Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio


More drunken driving offenders could be required to have devices installed on their vehicles to test their sobriety under an Ohio bill.

The proposal would require the ignition interlock devices for offenders if a judge grants them driving privileges during their license suspensions.

The devices require drivers to blow into a sensor. They would prevent vehicles from starting if a certain amount of alcohol is detected. The systems cost about $80 to $100, which the offender would pay.

Under the proposal, those who refuse to submit to an alcohol-related chemical test also could petition the court to drive with a device on their vehicle during their license suspension.

The bill's sponsors say the goal of the legislation is to reduce drunken driving re-arrest rates, along with alcohol-related accidents and fatalities.
