As a public service, your new car NJ dealer would like to let you know about a new piece of legislation working its way through the state’s House and Senate. This new bill would require drivers convicted of drunk driving to have an ignition lock placed on their vehicles. This attachment would work as a breathalyzer for the driver. If it senses alcohol on the driver’s breath, it locks the ignition so the car eill not start.
The proposal will make it necessary for first-time DUI drivers whose blood-alcohol level was .15 or higher to have this ignition lock installed on their vehicle. It also gives judges more leeway when deciding who should be mandated to have these locks and for how long they should have them.
Drunken driving accidents are certainly something that can and should be avoided. It’s sad that we as a society have to take measures like this prevent something completely preventable. How do you feel about proposals like this? Do you think it is too harsh or do you think actions like this are necessary in order to reduce the number of drunk drivers on the roads?
