Lawmaker Pushing For New Drunk Driving Legislation
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- An Iowa lawmaker is pushing to extend drunk driving laws in Iowa.
State Senator Brian Schoenjahn introduced a bill that would require first-time drunk driving offenders to use an ignition interlock system in their vehicles for at least six months.
For the offender's vehicle to start, the person would first have to take and pass a blood-alcohol test through a breathalyzer connected to the vehicle's ignition system.
22 states, including Illinois and Missouri, already require ignition interlocks for all offenders.
