Description

DUI; persons convicted under laws of other states or federal law; restricted license; ignition interlock. Provides that a person convicted in a federal court of an offense substantially similar to Virginia's DUI law may petition the general district court that he be assigned to a certified alcohol safety program and issued a restricted driver's license. Currently, only persons convicted in other states of substantially similar DUI offenses may so petition. The bill also requires that, as a condition of a restricted license, a person who has been convicted of a substantially similar DUI offense under the laws of another state or the United States be prohibited from operating a motor vehicle that is not equipped with an ignition interlock system.

These Drunk Driving Butchers need to be on a public registry so we can report them if they use another persons car. Only then will your system work, and the ignition lock should be for life.
