First-time DUI ignition interlock passes House
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) —
A bill requiring the use of ignition interlocks for all first-time convicted drunk drivers for one year has Passed the Idaho House of Representatives.
The bill, which now heads to the Senate, would mandate installation of the devices in vehicles of those convicted for first-time DUI.
An ignition interlock is an in-vehicle breathalyzer which requires the driver to blow into a mouthpiece on the device before starting the car. Currently, ignition interlocks are only required after a second DUI conviction.
