NHTSA wants ignition lockouts for first-time DUI offenders [w/poll]
According to The Detroit News, every state in the Union uses interlocks in some way, but only twenty states and four counties in California make the technology mandatory on the vehicles of every convicted drunk driver in its jurisdiction.
Outgoing NHTSA boss David Strickland says the interlocks "protect sober motorists and ensure that individuals convicted of drunk driving learn from their mistakes." The plan also has widespread support from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Ignition interlocks generally cost drivers about $75 to install, plus between $50 and $75 per month in monitoring fees.
