Tennessee Ignition Interlock Laws Get Second Look

Concerns over convicted DUI offenders continuing to drive, even on a restricted license, have prompted Tennessee legislators to consider changing DUI laws within the state. The Tenessean reports that current laws within Tennessee make it easy for those convicted of drinking and driving to continue to drive, putting lives at risk across the state. With new legislation aimed at the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device for all drivers who receive a restricted license, the ability to drive while intoxicated is significantly lowered. With a reported 30% decrease in DUI-related deaths within states that already require the mandatory ignition interlock device installation, Tennessee legislators are hopeful this step could make an impact in that state, as well.
