Bill proposed in Iowa to curb drunk driving accidents
Arlington Senator Brian Schoenjahn recently introduced a bill that is aimed at reducing the number of accidents caused by drunk drivers.
The new proposed law states that people who are convicted of drunk driving will have to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicle for six months while those who have several convictions will have the device installed for a year. This device prevents a person’s car from starting if there is any alcohol detected on their breath.
Iowa’s current law states that the device will be installed in the vehicles of repeat offenders and for people who have a blood alcohol content of 0.10 and above.
The bill will be discussed by the senate sub-committee on Monday, February 17.
