Ignition Interlock Support Expands- Tell Us What You Think!
The average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before a first arrest. While suspending the license of these individuals makes sense, in reality, three out of four people with a suspended license continue to drive, threatening the safety of you and your loved ones. That’s why MADD and Steinberg support requiring ignition interlock devices for all convicted drunk drivers, in order to prove they are sober before the car will start.
Requiring all convicted drunk drivers to use ignition interlocks to prove they are sober before they can start their vehicles has been shown to save lives and stop drunk driving. Arizona, Oregon, New Mexico and Louisiana have all seen a reduction in DUI deaths by 33 to 46 percent, largely due to these comprehensive laws requiring all drunk drivers to receive an interlock.
Tell us what you think. Would putting these devices in convicted drunk drivers cars make a difference in the number of fatal DUI accident?
