Bill Seeks to Crack Down on Drunken Driving

Frankfort, KY – The Kentucky House has passed a bill aimed at making sure that people convicted of drunken driving don't repeat the offense again. The measure cleared the House without opposition Thursday and now goes to the Senate. It would result in breath-alcohol monitoring devices being placed in the vehicles of people caught driving drunk. The ignition locks require people to prove they're not drunk by blowing into a device before starting their vehicles. The safeguard would be placed in the vehicles of people caught driving drunk just once. The bill is supported by the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
