Drunk Driving Legislation

Michigan lawmakers want to make a pilot program for repeated drunk drivers permanent. 

For the past three years, Michigan allowed people with multiple drunk driving offenses to obtain a restricted drivers license only by installing an ignition interlock device in their vehicles which takes their breath alcohol levels, in order to start the car.  The House voted yesterday to make it a permanent part of the law as its shown positive and successful results; it now heads to the Senate for approval. The program , which is set to expire in January, also requires offenders to partake in sobriety court programs.
