First offense DUI; ignition interlock and restricted license.  Provides that a person who is convicted of DUI is required to have an ignition interlock on the first offense as a condition of a restricted license. Currently, the requirement for an interlock is imposed only upon a second offense or when the offender's blood alcohol content is above 0.15 percent. The bill also expands the likelihood that a first offender will be issued a restricted license when necessary for the offender's employment. Read the Bill »
