MADD proposes ignition interlocks for all drunk drivers
As an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer, I have been pleased to sponsor the Mothers Against Drunk Driving of Georgia web site. (See the extremely small print with no hyperlink at the very bottom of the home page.)
Now MADD is proposing legislation to require DUI offenders to have ignition interlock devices — an electronic gadget that keeps a car from starting unless the driver’s breath is alcohol-free — installed on their vehicles after their first DUI conviction. Judges can now require this after the second DUI conviction.
Sounds like a good idea.
