    Um, “Gov. Signs Bill to Increase Penalties on Drunk Drivers”… The actual article says “Both laws involve the installation of ignition interlock devices”

    I don’t see anything about penalties. In fact, one of the bills, SB 598 is hardly a crackdown. It gives repeat offenders the chance for a restricted license if they agree to install interlock devices on their vehicles. No matter what the restriction, a restricted license is hardly a ‘crackdown’ vs. no license.

  • Rich Wilson

    SB 598 actually lets repeat DUI offenders get their license back significantly sooner if the install an interlock. 90 days as opposed to 12 months for a 2nd time offender.

    Hardly a ‘crackdown’ IMO.

  • You are correct. I have updated the headline appropriately.
